Dissolve 2 pounds of sugar in a quart of near boiling water. Add cool
water to make 1 gallon total volume. 1 packet of bread yeast. Toss a
handful of rice crispies in if you have some. Or any other grain
cereal. (I'm thinking of trying cherrios at some point)
I experiment from time to time and it is usually with 1 gallon washes.
If you are ok with spending alot of time and energy for very little
yield you have the right setup. One gallon washes don't really create
alot of product. You will be lucky to get a pint of good drink for
your efforts. I have been doing some 2.5 gallon washes lately (with a
reflux method that I will post after this) and by the time I cut out
300ml for foreshots and heads and about the same for tails I wind up
with about 700ml of 140 proof drink. When I dilute it to 95-100 proof
I wind up with around a liter. This is satisfactory for me. It is
easier to work with this amount and It only takes a couple of hours to
run. Bottom line is your going to want a bigger boiler at some point.
