RE: [Distillers] pitching, home made nutrients, and temp. control
- Patrick, Pete from Brewers barn. Pitching means 'adding the yeast to the
wash"it is merely the action of adding the yeast to the wash or wine must or
beer wort.You can reconstitute the yeast by the addition of some sugar
dissolved in warm water (22-25 degrees c)in a "starter bottle" and add this
to your wash. One of the simplest means of keeping your wash at a lower
temp, is to place a bag of party ice to the wash. Just float the unopened
bag in the top of your wash.

This will be very brief, I would like any information on pitching (I don't
even know what it is, and the sites I've gone to are to complicated and
don't explain how to do it, I've also looked through previous posts and
have't fornd very much!)
I would also apreciate it if anyone out there knows how to make their own
nutrients (don't have to be too good).
Another thing I'm curious about is, if you live in a house that isn't
airconditioned, and says at roughly 35 degrees celcius how can you control
the temp to around 20-26, keeping in mind it is too heavy to move (the
Would wrapping a coil of pipe around it several times, then having the pipe
attatched to a bucket of icy water work with a pump pumping it all work?
Any other ideas would be great, not only on temp control, but on pitching
and nutrients would also be great.
ps one more question:
I spend roughly 12-14 dollars on sugar each run for a 50 l wash, is there a
