charles vereschagin: Talking to some old timers when they were make the wine to make whisky they would float 2 or 3 slices of bread on the brew. does that make scene?
David Sigsworth: Can you give me a link, to your theme music, please?
Ray_Biker: My grandpa used to make moonshine. He used a similar sugar mash but added a secret ingredient. He also added about a tablespoon of caramelized sugar to a gallon of final product (moonshine) to give it some color and flavor. Most people loved it and said it tasted like good, expensive whiskey. Oh, the secret ingredient was - tomato paste. A real tomato paste, not the crap we buy in stores these days, full of additives and preservatives. I believe he added about 10 of tomato paste to the mash plus the regular amount of sugar, by volume. I may be wrong about the tomato paste ratio but it's close to his recipe. This was 30 years ago.
voltronsupreme: what i like most is that he mixed yeast, He is rhe only ine i seen do this, other say the world will end if you do. i have mixed turbo yeast and regular and had success, i also have salvaged regular yeast brew that didnt start fermenting by adding some turbo yeast.
Michael Williams: Easy go local and travel to conventions and do annual if you can make it club meetings and have cookouts. that's how I work with companies and small starters. Friends make a crew
Michael Williams: by prep I mean longer and more detailed. and my guys are in Texas with me and are chemist's.
Michael Williams: I have experts criticizing you to me. yes watching this video can help you make moonshine, but your method could end up making more methanol than moonshine. Plus you missed to add a lot of steps in this video and to place out the negatives. I strongly recommend that you prep your videos more and give a 360 view for your followers.
Michael Williams: Do not fallow this video for you could die! consult an expert!
Jay Fiddler: That's some regular home brew ...lol...where I'm from people just drink it as is as its done fermenting...lmao
Emily Gregory: do you need the turbo yeast or will any bread yeast work?
justin luikenaar: does mash needs cornmail? if its not what is the ratio of sugar water and yeast
Steve Rabon: In your opinion how should one go about making corn shine. How to start the mesh into actually brewing the mesh?
gary whelton: can you make shine from blueberrys ?
wayne jones: i use turbo yeast whole packet to 6kg of sugar top the bucket up to 25 litres as stated on the package but only seem to get 10% the package says i should get 20% and it takes 2 weeks to stop bubbling.
wingmanalive: I use a similar recipe. 2lbs of table sugar per gallon of wash, plus about 2 tablespoons of yeast nutrient for a 5 gallon batch. Water at 100 degrees. Baker's yeast works but brewer's yeast is recommended. Turbo yeast is a beast but expensive and can/will make a mess when using airlocks. In my area Alcotech turbo yeast is $10/packet in my brew stores and I'm sure it's cheaper online with shipping charges added though. Brewer's yeast is $1 a packet good for 5 gallon batches. The sugar and where you buy it will be your most costly ingredient. Walmart sells 4lb bags for $2 and slightly less in 25lb bags per lb. I triple distill which yields me a solid 170+ proof spirit and filter using a $10 over the counter brita water pitcher. Bam. For about $25 in supplies I can yield (10) 750ml bottles of white lightening. It takes time but you just can't beat the cost at less than $3/bottle for 170 proof, $1.50 if you water it down to vodka proof (80 or so). My shine will stop a horse lol. I prefer using extracts and making cordials like peppermint schnapps and homemade Goldschlager. There are so many possibilities using a neutral spirit it's incredible. I haven't tried aging in oak barrels to make whiskey yet but I'd love to.
dennis alexander: can you give me some proportions like for 4 gallons of mash how much water sugar and yeast do i need? thanks
Bryce Edwards: Do you have to run it through the still or can you just drink it
Blogdawg100: Can you drink it from the container when it's done fermenting?
Aminlv: i have issue with sugar wash ofcourse it start happy yeasts... however middle of way they stop fermenting
ARCSTREAMS: Mike I am thinking of getting a malt extract can in order to make some real whisky,,now most of these will give you 23 litres(ie 6 gal) of beer let's say at about 5 % abv,,im thinking if use a concentration of only 2 gals instead then I should be able to get an abv of about 15% each gallon ,does this sound about right to you? and if so then in two runs(i can only run 1 gal at a time) I should be able to extract about 1200ml total of alcohol not counting heads and tails,,what do you think?
