- Tony! There seems to be some misunderstanding on what holding a bead is.
When you shake your moonshine made of a sugar and yeast base does your
liquor bubble up? And keep some bubbles along the edge on top for a
while? Just wondering!!! Thanks!!
- Deb or your Hubby! If I remember correctly youall get 2 or 3 quarts of
good liquor from a 5 gal. batch of mash. From your conversations I
believe youall are Americans like myself. So I was wondering if youall
ever heard of holding a bead? And if so does your liquor hold a bead?
Our friends down under are very helpful but they're not real hip on what
holding a bead means to us hillbilly americans! Just wondering about
your 'moonshine' Thanks
