Re: First Whisky
And welcome aboard. Might want to check out: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/new_distillers/message/38767 for my corn flakes recipe and also knock heads with loulenz who just received 30 kgs of instant oats. See: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/new_distillers/message/38892

I know about cornflake whisky and was thinking of trying that next, distilling with the scrubbers pulled out of the column. However I have also read about oat whiskey and was wondering if I could do anything with the oats and wheat malt to try and make a wash. I like mildly flavoured spirits mainly (except gin which can be as strong as you like for me!) and was wondering if anybody has suggestions for a wash with the ingredients I have to hand. I'm not an all-grain purist and don't mind adding sugar to make up the alcohol content if necessary.
