- Jan 2, 2005Hi Artic i have been distilling for years now but i have never
bothered to boil my water, i just use tap water (i live in QLD
Australia ) and have only had a couple of "stuck" brews that i saved
with some extra dry yeast.
By your description of corn flakes are you from Australia?, if you
are distilling at around 90% you would not retain much flavour, you
may need to consider a pot still. i recomend straining your wash
before distilling as i have experienced the effect of a pot burning
the mash and the cleanup was not fun!
i now prefer just to use sugar wash and flavour with various flavours
But that is just my way of doing things! (mostly whisky)
don't know about others but i find a good dash of port (200mls) or so
per 5 literes of flavoured spirit and leave it for a few months on
oak (or years when you build up supply) is a great way of getting
have fun and hope the wife enjoys the new "hobby"
