Received: Thursday, 5 November, 2009, 3:48 PMStart with more sugar (either as sugar or as flaked grain) in you mash and the wort will have a higher original gravity, but really for best results you want a lower initial ABV.If you look up what the pro's use you would find that their washes are all around the 7-10%ABV mark for high quality Whiskey/Scotch. So your wash is right in the ball park, run it and enjoy the fruits of your labours. <grin>P.
