I just wanted to let you guys know about a recipe for 'shine that is
working very well for me. This recipe makes the smoothest 'shine I
have been lucky enough to run through my still.
2 1LBS packages of corn meal (I know, it is a mess to work with)
5 LBS table sugar
1.5 LBS 6-row barley - well cracked
your favorite lager yeast
Bring 4 gallons water to a boil, remove from heat and add in the corn
meal, stirring to prevent lumps.
Let sit for until cooled to 160F. The corn meal will thicken to a
very thick porrige.
At 160F, stir in barley. The starch from the corn meal will convert
almost instantly and the wort will thin to a soupy mix.
Let sit for 30 minutes at least, stirring occationally.
Bring 1 gallon of water to a boil.
Stir sugar into boiling water.
Pour barley/corn meal mixture into fermentor.
Add sugar-water to fermentor.
When the temp has dropped to correct temperature, still in your yeast.
Let sit two weeks (or until bubbling stops)
Strain wort into your pot. I use a wire-mesh strainer. The corn
meal is so thick and guey at this point it will catch in the strainer
and the wort will slowly drain out. Rinse corn meal/grains well with
hot water to get all the wort.
most people don't like dealing with corn meal but it will give your
brew the authentic flavor of corn without going threw the trouble of
boiling for two-three hours and then mashing for another hour. Just
make sure to use an appropriate strainer before distilling.
