RE: [new_distillers] new to the board
- thank you for the info, very helpful. i took your
advice and ordered the on-line book for Strand, also
very helpful. i have not been able to fined "yeast
nutrients" locally. what, in your opinion, can i use
,"from the store". potatos, apples, oranges, etc.? is
one better then another? also read a can of tomato
paste is good to add also. as long as the yeast has
something to live on, should work, right? i'm
thinking, maybe wrong(won't be the first time)a
combination of a couple differant friuts and veggies
will give the yeast a larger menu to live off of.
sound right? thanks again for the info, brian

- Hey Brian
I use molasses as a nutrient. It works very well and the colour comes out
when you distil.
