Re: [new_distillers] Almost finished, but which mash/yeast?
- Make the batch like the instructions say and if its too much split the batch and run it in two sessions .

soldering to do then give it a test and clean up!
Now then, my boiler will hold 25ltrs max but i figured i'd be better
filling it to 20ltrs to allow a bit more head room so to speak.
So, which type of yeast would be best for me to use to make a 20ltr
mash with a alcohol content of somewhere between 14 and 16%. I'm
limited on choice really but i was considering a turbo 48 yeast. The
blurb on the advert says it makes 25ltrs. So, would it ferment out if
i made 20ltrs instead of 25, or would i need to reduce the amount of
sugar. And, if i did use 20ltrs of water would i get 20ltrs of mash,
or does it somehow "grow" into more due to the sugar, bit confused on
All advice gratefully received.
