Hey y’all, I got a little more copper and managed to push it up to a 5-6 gallon now. I did a cleaning run, ran some vinegar through it, cleaned it again, and did a wine run. I got a good couple quarts of hearts at 60-65% crystal clear. I think it was Just to dang small. (Quarts of wine run that is). However, I noticed a green crud in the column, arm and top of the boiler. I did yet another run of vinegar, scrubbed it, and the crap just ain’t coming out. I run my finger hard across it and a slight green/watery tint comes off. The copper is only a week old, only had 5-6 runs through it. Any idea what’s up with that, or is that just normal?
Beverage commander, the guy sold me the wrong hydrometer (don’t know how that’s possible) but the lowest it goes is 1.060 so I wasn’t able to get any gravity reading off the brandy. I got a cracked corn/sugar recipe going right now as well. It’s bubblin like crazy. Took a cup of the brandy though and it had a good alcohol taste to it- much much more than the flaked maize recipe. I’ll let Yknow how it goes! Main concern is that green crap mentioned above though.
ok so if I make a corn/sugar mash, then syphon it out to a wash – there would be no reason to clear the wash correct?
Thank you! How long do you wait after stirring in the Gelatin, 24-48 hours?
awesome. thank you so much!
i just make 5 gallons batches per run. thank you! what would you say the ratio is for corn to sugar; 1LB of sugar per 1LB of corn? I prefer the natural flaked maze without sugar but someone near here had a problem with there corn production LOL. so, headed to alternatives! 🙂
might be a stupid question again lol fairly new to all this, do you put the flaked corn in a big mesh “steeping” bag, or do you just add it to the wash and let it sit as it ferments?
thank you so much, I greatly appreciate it. So any homebrew place will carry flaked corn I would imagine?
