Re: Grape Nut Recipe Request
- The recipe that I used right or wrong was real close to Tony's recipe
on his website http://homedistiller.org/wash-grain.htm#sourmash with
some changes. His sounds easier to do. I took about 15 or 16 boxes
of cereal and dumped them into two 17 quart pressure cooker pots. I
added enough water to fill the pots most of the way and heated them
on the stove to 160 degrees. I checked the temperature with a candy
thermometer. I held the temp there for 15 minutes and then shut off
the heat. When the temperature dropped to below 140 degrees, I added
2 liters of malted grain to each pot and set the cover onto it. When
the pots were cool enough to handle, I transfered both pots to the
same fermenting bucket and added enough water to bring it up to the
right level. Then waited till the temperature was below 100 degrees
and added some enzyme. I fermented 2 batches this same way at a
time. I added yeast when the temperature was below 80 degrees. After
two days of fermenting, I added a 10 pound bag of sugar to each
fermenter. The total ferment time was 6 days. It seemed to do
well. It was one of my first attempts at fermenting grain. The
batch turned green from the copper salts in the still, so I didnt
taste it on its own.
This is my one and only attempt at this. There were too many
sideways looks at the grocery store after buying about 40 boxes of
the same brand of cereal.
Hope this helps
