Making rhum without molasas?
Can you help me make rhum? Where I live there is no molasas at all. i
have looked at every grocery I know of in 3 countries already, no
molasas, but i can get raw cane sugar for about 1.5x the price of white
sugar... still not insanely expensive.
Can you give any advice on making some kind of rum wash where there is
no access to moalsas? Does Rhum have to be made from fresh cane juice,
or can it be made from raw sugar? There are heath food shops here, and

Glad you like it, but remember hooch without oaking is just "white

per gallon of heavy toast american oak. Will be ready in much less
than a month. Remember go easy with the spices, specially cinnamon.
Some people claim to oak at high concentration and later dillute.
They say the perfect concentration is about 55% ABV, age and later
cut with (distill) water. Also watch out with honey. Too much will
give you some hazy booze at the very beginning, but it will settle
later. Use less than 50 ml per gallon (some people say 10 ml per
gallon is ideal, but it´s a matter of taste I guess) or you can
considered it as an extra spice an mix it after you age. I´ve tried
