Re: 22 Kilos of white rice (update)
- Hey, understand that I am very new to this hobby. I don't have
any 'test' equipment, gravity meters and the like as for now my means
are crude at best. Probably wouldn't have sense enough to read them
anyway. I will do better in the future no doubt but, this is why I am
here (new distillers) I definitely got no way near to technical :-/
with my rice.
Anyway, here is what I did.... I brought to boil the entire 22k of
and 57 liters of water in a barrel. It took near four hours to boil.
boiled it until it turned to mush, took a couple more hours. I dumped
11k of my rice into a barrel and kept the other 11k in the boil
I let it all cool to the touch and added 2 packages of Complete 3-in-
Enzyme in each barrel. I then stirred until my arms fell off. It all
sat overnight an was at about 32C the next morning.
All I had was four packages of 'Whisky Yeast with AG' I purchased
Brewhaus a long time ago, actually the yeast was out of date by 6
months. I put two packages in each barrel and stirred again until my
arms fell off. I put plastic wrap over the top and taped around the
lip of the barrels for a seal. In just a few hours the plastic wrap
blown off the tops of both barrels. I replaced the plastic and poked
couple small holes. Much action is going on inside my barrels, and I
happy about that.
