      I found a place on online/ebay that sells molasses. They sent me the
      following info:

      GOLDEN BARREL
      UNSULFURED BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES

      INGREDIENTS: MOLASSES

      Refrigerate After Opening - No Preservatives Added

      NUTRITION FACTS:
      Serving Size 1 Tbsp (20 g)
      Calories 50
      Total Fat 0g (0%)
      Total Carb. 13g (4%)
      Sugars 12g
      Protein 0g
      Sodium 15mg (1%)
      Potassium 500mg (15%)
      Calcium 15%
      Iron 20%

      It does not say if it has proprionic acid, does not state Brix. Can
      anyone give me any advice on how to figure any of this out BEFORE I
      buy any?

      Thanks,
      T-

      No Preservatives Added means no proprionic acid. The percent sugar by weight is the grams of sugar divided by the the grams serving size. In this case 12g/20g

        The percent sugar by weight is the grams of sugar divided by the the
        grams serving size.
        In this case 12g/20g is 60% sugar. This is usual for thick table grade
        molasses.
        This molasses like most has no protein and no B vitamins. These are
        usually necessary for molasses and water to ferment in a reasonable
        amount of time.

          Since I finally got everything needed to start (well, almost everything), is there anything I can buy locally to act as yeast nutrients? We have no homebrew

              Hello Mr. T

              You're going to hate me for this, but try "homedistillers.com"
              under "Washes". Yeasts are covered there, along with grocery store
              nutrients to be had. Some say tomato paste works well, but I don't
              think it actually has any nutrients, persay. I could be wrong. It
              does provide a good environment for fermentation by lowering the ph
              of the wash.
              HTH

              Tip one, Morgan
