Don't use distilled water, use spring water and use bakers yeast along with the brewers yeast.On Tue, Apr 23, 2013 at 12:48 PM, cnapier@... <cnapier@...> wrote:Ok.....need help.

4 inches of all grain...corn, barley, maple mix.
5 pounds white sugar.
5 gallons distilled water.
2 teaspoons dady brewers yeast.
Water temp 70 degrees
All in glass carboy
Wait til yeast is finished.
Distilled in pot still.
Double barreled condenser.
Done on hot plate.....plenty of heat.
Lucky to get 40 oz on stripping run.
