    In reply to: popcornsutton posted an update in the group Mash Recipes The jalapeño shine that I made didn\'t turn out exactly how I wanted it, l got the idea from the tv show moonshiners where patty and david were making a jalapeño shine. It isn\'t as sweet as I thought and it isnt all that spicy(the mash was spicy as hell and when I strained out the cornmeal my hands caught on fire, lol)it was like green bell peppers, I also have a bit of a problem, when I collected the shine on the second run I divided them into 2 one quart jars, the first jar being the higher proof stuff and the 2nd jar being lower proof and half full, which developed white flakes in the Likker! Kinda looks like paper machete or something. Anyone know what this could be? HELP PLEASE I\'ll post some pics View

    Never mind guys I think, I shook the damn jar and they disappeared.

    • I would think developing an essence of jalapeno, by soaking one in the shine for a small period of time, like 6 hrs, might better give the jalapeno kick you want. Or soaking one in ethanol and then adding.

    In reply to: dooley posted an update in the group Mash Recipes @popcornsutton George Washington\'s MT. Vernon Rye Whiskey Recipe 7 Lbs. Rye 2 Lbs.Corn 1 Lbs. Malted Barley 6 gallons of water 1 oz Yeast 3 oz Hops Add hops to water and boil for 30 minutes. Let cool to about 70 degrees and filter out hops. To the hop water add malt and grain. While stirring the mixture slowly heat to 160 degrees (raise temperature 5 degrees every 2 minutes). Keep mixture at 160 degrees stirring constantly for 2-3 hours to convert starch into fermentable sugar and dextrin. When done, cool to 70-80 degrees filter off liquid and place into fermentation container. Add the yeast. To avoid secondary fermentation and contamination add 1 gram of ammonium-fluoride. Stir liquid for 1 minute then cover . Mash will take 5-7 days to ferment. After fermentation is done filter through a pillow case to remove all solids. Run through still about 2 to 3 times. Reduce to proof and enjoy. View

    Thanks dooley again, I’ll be sure to try this recipe any time soon! Can you post some rum recipes please and I’ll send some pics on my collection of liquor. THANKS FOR THE REPLY

    I’m up in canada too skeena, I’ve been running my still all winter! You know what I thought about during autum, why not use Canadian ice and snow to cool my condenser? So when the chilly Canadian winters fell thats just what I did, my still has a worm condenser so thats why I use snow.

    In reply to: popcornsutton posted an update in the group Mash Recipes I\'m wondering about yeast, I\'ve got alot of distiller friends who use bread yeast and say that it ferments faster and is better than any other wine or beer yeast they\'ve tried(its also a hell of alot cheaper). I\'ve used it twice and it seems to do OK(produced a good 9%abv thin mash that was jalapeño flavored) I\'ve also made a brown sugar corn mash recipe which I posted below using bread yeast, I also heard that alot of old timers would use fleishmans bread yeast. Anyway has any of you used bread and what kind of results did you get? View

    Maybe I’ll change my mind.

    My homebrew shops don’t sell distillers yeast or dady and if I order it online I’ll probably be buying it for way more than it’s worth an if I do order it I’ll have to wait a while before I can make anything with it. I heard bread yeast ferments up to 12-14%abv but I don’t like to push it that far, 9% good for me.

    • your not gonna get a good abv with bread yeast 8 or ten max distillers yeast is the way togo the reason old timers used bread yeast is that was all that was available whiskey pure is what .I use. that and dady.

How does this recipe look to ya guys?
