Re: Makin's for rum
- I've tried using something called dry molasses from a local feed
store. All in all it was a real pain in the ass to use because you
have to strain the wash after you heat it in order to get rid of all
the solid stuff that doesn't dissolve. Even after straining, the rum I
made from it has some of the off flavors from the solid junk. For
about the same price(~14 dollars) I was able to get 50 pounds of wet
molasses which has been a lot easier to use.
