I get a 50lb bag of "sweet feed" here in eastern KY for 11.50 lasts a
hell of a long time. Makes some of the best liker you ever tasted.
I use the whiskey yeast. Whisky Yeast with AG is a real distillery
whisky yeast with Amyloglucosidase, and is used in some of the finest
whisky distilleries in the world. It breaks down the sugars in the
grain itself. I boil the feed for a few minutes and let her cool then
pitch the yeast. Takes a little while to ferment, like 7 to 10 days,
but its worth it. Had an old timer (in his 70's) tell me that this
drink puts some of the stuff he used to make to shame. I don't sell
it. I drink it. Friends want a quart, I give it to 'em. Start selling
it and you get to the point where you ain't giving a shit about
quality, just quantity. Not to mention the fact that somebody (no
matter how well you trust them) is going to talk. Before you know it,
the law is looking at you. Three months out of the year, I miss my
hobby (December thru March) but come spring, I'm right back at what I
love best. Making the recipe.
