      Hi Group and Sven,

      I am trying to "perfect" rum and continually try different methods. After advise from this group, I re-use some of the spent wash (dunder) at the ratio of 1:2. 1 part dunder to two parts water. It works for me.

      Cheers,

      Bob.

      Does anyone reuse the spent wash as the base for the next batch. It
      should have all the nutrients left in it since the yeast is still
      there. Once it is boiled, the yeast are dead and will become 'ghost
      hulls'. If you have a 1.015 terminal gravity, and boil off 4 L of the
      25L, it goes up to 1.018 or so. Add more sugar, add o2 and pitch
      yeast. I can see where this might not be advisable after several
      generations, but it would seem to make sense for a couple of cycles.

      Sven
