Re: Sugar wash
- Ahhh good - but for 5.5 gallons i would increase the nutrients to
about 1 ounce and 3 Tablespoons of acid blend.
Now if you had boiled up 2.5 lbs of Kellog's Corn Flakes and 1.5 lbs
of Shredded Wheat, and used 10 lbs white sugar and 3 lbs of brown
sugar along with 48 oz of Grapefruit juice, then you would have come
close to my "White Lightning" recipe ;-).
Vino es Veritas,
I did forget to put in the post that I did add a teaspoon of acid
blend and 2 teaspoons of yeast nutrient. Both purchased from a home
brew shop. I also aerated with a live well aerator for 30 minutes.
This all done the day before I added the barley. Whether these
quantities are enough or too much I do not know. but it sounds like I
didn't hurt anything.
- From some practice .If up have acess to yeast nutients .then use white sugar .reason is that some brown sugar especially from brazil tends to give the distilate a bitter taste.anything that is properly cleaned like white sugar is beter , just like using ripe clean fruits.Louisbossy
