I've used treacle to make rum. It works. It works better the
second time when you've got dunder left over from the previous run
to add to the wort.
It's also very expensive. The last time I bought a tin 850gm (for
home use) last week it cost me AUD $2.75 at Woolies in Cairns N.Q.
It you allow that treacle & molasses only have about 50% fermentable
sugars, that's $2.75 for 425gm. Compare that to raw sugar at $1.00
per kg. or feedstore molasses at $30 - $40 for 200lt drum and you
can see what I mean.
