- Mar 1, 2009Yes, I had flaked rye and cooked whole barley. That damn barley had
stayed whole and thus contributed very little to the taste making my
mash very thin in taste (only 0.8 kg rye was used). The endresult may
resemble Irish whiskey after oaking, as it is I do not consider it
drinkable. I did distill it with feints from grains whiskey so that
may have helped some.
I took the backset and started a new serie of three using malt this
time, we'll see how it turns out.
