- The first batch of UJSM i made i added 2lbs of green malted corn (just
smashed up with a blender.I noticed in the low wines on tasting
samples it had a strange taste and for 3 cycles it was the same so i
think it was the green malted corn so have discontinued this batch ;
Second attempt just stuck to the recipe and wow the sample tasting of
low wines is now much better.
My first strip run on this new batch produced
2.2lt at 55%abv at 30deg adjusted to 20 deg =52%
2.2 lt at25%abv at 30 deg adjusted to 20deg =22%
Total of 4.4 liters
Total run time 3.5hrs
Ive received some new toys from brewers so am just starting to try and
use all these .a couple of questions
To get the average abv on this 4.4 ltr do i just add 52+22 and divide
second question ,is it possible to tell from the above if my still is
giving any reflux it was approx a 22 ltr wash
Also am now adding backset of 8litres ,my ferment starts within 10min
and seems to work for 3to 4 days.
- Hi Guys ive a question about this water /pressure release system .
1) wont the vapor condense against the liquid in the U shape bend ??
and why couldn't you achieve the same thing by taking the U bend of the
bottom of the Thumper ,that way the pressure in the thumper can still
equalize in the U bend by using its own liquid ,the same as the
illustration but just of the bottom of the thumper tank .
And i reckon the inlet pipe to the thumper should have holes drilled in
it from about 3/4 of the way down and then turn at a 90 deg with a tube
the length of the thumper with a end cap and as many small holes as
possible drilled in it all the way around .
I actually have been playing with this at home using an air com pressure
and it dose seem to work well .
Just a thought
