Mash calculation spreadsheet
- Sorry about that, something definitely went wrong with the attachment so
I'll try it as a straight ZIP'd file (PKZIP Ver2.0g). Thought a self
extracting file would help as I know there are a few vintages of PKZIP
around. What should arrive is a 26k UUEncoded file giving a 19.1k .zip

Could someone in NZ enlighten me as to what the oak chips are that some
of your malt whisky recipes call for. Are they simply bits of oak
somewhere between sawdust & plane shavings in size (like say, oak chips
used on BBQs) ?
If anyone is experimenting with producing whisky from malted barley then
it might be of interest that during the 2nd distillation of Ardbeg (@ 56
p.p.m. peat smoke on the barley malt the most highly peated of all the
Islay whiskys) the spirit is only taken between 72 & 60% ABV. The 72%
point is usually taken as a point where the spirit is not coloured by
adding distilled water - but the gaugers (Excisemen) insist on
hydrometer back up. Feints are continued to be taken down to 0.1%ABV
and, along with the foreshots, added back to the next distillation. Some
distillers will cut at 62/63% ABV to get a lighter spirit.
And finally from the days when every Scots family had their own still:

I suspect this has not worked again. Maybe if you placed it on a webpage and members could download it themselves. My webpage would be available if you wish, or one of the free hosting services may help. Others may have better suggestions. We are intersted in your program. thank you for the effort.
