    Keep the fermentation around 80F (26.7C). By keeping it hot you will speed up the fermentation and keep the yeast happy.

I can say Ive read something about stirring the "cap" back into the mash but there are guys on here that are far more knowledgeable than me.

      > Flaked Maize, 6 row Pale malt,Prestige WD yeast with Amylogucosidase, Two 26.5L fermenters with lids and airlocks, and a 60 qt stock pot. Was thinking i would follow Ian Smileys whiskey recipe (don't know if you have read his book). Read a post on here ( post #37774) and now am thinking about going that route instead or mixing the two. Anything... tricks etc that i should try or be aware of ? One thing to read another to have real world experience.
