38679Im wheated up!! what do i make??
- Mar 1, 2007Gidday folks!I just got given aprox 30kg of wheat! and a heap of molasses!I'm chuffed!! :)From what I understand the wheat its good quality and fairly fresh, Came directly from a wheat farm and it was in the "good stuff" pile,I want too make something nice with it so I can give a few bottles too the kind person who grew (and gave) this lot too me!,I have had a quick search and I cant find any "high wheat" recepies, except the "Apfelkorn", Which is blended with apple juice?,Is there something nice and easy for me too try?If i distill "just wheat" and bring it off at 80ish % Will it have a nice flavor? Or just taste like a metho vodka? :)I'm guessing the only real thing I can turn the molasses into is rum!, Ive had mixed results making rum, And have discovered that if I do a "molasses/water/yeast" mix its almost impossible too distill!,Even mixing in large amounts of butter, I can only distill 5l at a time in my 25l boiler, and 10 tops in my keg boiler, It almost explodes with a super thick froth! upsetting too see black shit spew into your hard earnt clear booze!!!.,. Ive found a little way around this, I do a 50% sugar/molasses mix! Works a treat!Any help of suggestions would be fantastic!Cheers!Ian
