Reverend Ken: Go back to shine school child, what a waste.
Nathan Houston: I've used this recipe and it does work. I've cut my product in half and it
still burns. Only change I recommend is boiling your corn meal to break it
down. Then add the sugar to the hot water to desolve it well. Wait till the
temp is back below 90 and add your yeast.
George Hawat: No reason to call him an idiot. Listen bro u need to break the corn starch
down by heating it and adding some sort of malt or Amylase heat the corn to
about 150° and add amylase stir at that temp till it breaks down back to
liquid then let cool to about 100° add water sugar warm to dissolve the
sugar. Activate your yeast at 95° with sugar and water add to the corn stir
and let it do it's thing
Kevin Gainey: Corn meal is optional. Hardly does anything in this recipe. Yeast eats
sugar to get at the oxygen in it. If the starch in the corn meal is not
malted into sugar then it's only a witness to the process and not a
participant. Yeast eats sugar. The space that the corn meal takes up would
be better utilized with diammonium phosphate (yeast nutrient).
FuhrerOfGermany: can you drink the final product of this mash?
Justin Elder: Hopefully this works. Although I'm gonna use 2lbs of sugar I think.
Rocky: Do I filter out the corn meal at the bottom of the jug before I run it
through the still?
felony1968: Out of a 5 gal of mash, what should the end result be?
Joe S: Dude..There is a bit of chlorine in your gene pool..I am writing about
yeast and fermentation..Foofy..stfu and Pay Attention !!!! Boy.. cannot
teach a red neck for nuthin
Steve Marshall: @TheSiceology You can Air Locks on Ebay.
gedion4000: lol...i was just gonna comment on that.
getdrunk19902: You use a condom. Most people who use the condoms put a pin hole in the top
but its not needed the gas finds a way to escape with out the hole. Or if
your using a jug you can just put the cap on but not tight so that the gas
Robert Fazio: how big is the jug?
Sean Carberry: just make it luke warm
1973Saved: Why do you need to throw away the first 2 oz of shine, what's in it. Ques #
2- I never heard of the old timers running their shine through charcoal, is
it drinkable without doing it or what does the charcoal take out? Just
curious, I'm really new at this. Thanks.
25gumballs: Ok so what happens if I put the yeast, cornmeal and sugar in FIRST then
added the water and shook the bottle? Which is what I did, lol..
Alex Dunlap: how much moonshine does this amount of mash yield????
mikel iavarone: ive been making moonshine now for about a year and i love it i dont even
drink.ive tried this recipe my first time and it does work but youll will
have to ferment way more than this as u usually only get 10-12%of your
total wash back.i also ordered a 2 gal still from this guy to go along with
the 2 gallon with a worm set up.works good but i hope i get more product
out of his still good luck.also once you get the hang of it try other
grains play around with your mash.
Bryan Marquez: what is the air lock an were can i get it
joeman369: @herdman89 keep it at 185-195degrees
john4145: @daddyrkingpin do you have to run it through a charcoal filter or can i
just run it in the still twice
nxtac: An one know roughly how much this mixture yeilds? How many quarts? I am
thinking of buying this kit for at home use..and am curious if its a good
deal. thanks in advance!
JT Mathews: @SmokeyandtheBandit77 the footage of Popcorn from the show is from a
documentary he did in 2008, the show was filmed over the summer
Zack Merrell: @dontforgetthisname96 you can use a condom, i do and it works just fine.
just poke about 5 holes in it with a safety pin. the pressure will stretch
the holes and let the carbon dioxide out but not let air in because there
is more pressure inside than outside the bottle.
Emily Gregory: where can you buy an air lock? and if you cant,what else could you use for
the air lock?
Brett Berry: Why would you use distilled water???? Fail. Yeast need oxygen in the water.
getdrunk19902: 1/4 oz (7g). 1 pack is good for up to 5 gals so really only one 5th of the
package is needed per gallon but most people just put the whole pack in.
It's like $2 for 3 packs of bread yeast so if you have money your better
off buying wine or distilling yeast because it's only a little more money
about 1 buck a pack and will make literally double the alcohol. Bread yeast
= 12.5% alcohol while wine and or distilling yeast can make over 22%.
Distilling yeast makes the highest.
MoneyManTHC: How many cups are in a pound??
☆Juan Kerr☆: can you use a balloon instad of an air lock?
Dave Schutt: what size is the jug? and what size is the package of yeast? As far as the
air lock, is it ok to just keep it capped?
Robert Fazio: just made first batch and distilled it, tasted great in the beginning....I
let it go too long and got a lot of water. How do you know when to stop? Is
there a certain amount for the 1 gallon batch? How many times would you
distill it? Thanks,
getdrunk19902: 1/4 oz (7g) 1 pack is good for up to 5 gals.
Dwight Pruitt: I LIKED THIS A HELL OF ALOT BETTER , THAN ANY OTHER VIDEO ON THIS SUBJECT ,
JUST SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF BULLcrap TALKING
D0PExSC0PE: this isnt real corn mash because it isnt malted basically just sugar water
with corn meal in it, you have to put amylase in it for the starch in the
corn meal to actually be converted to sugar for the yeast for it to
actually be a corn mash
Sean Carberry: yea, someone on internet used a condom lol
Gary L. Chamblee: about half a gallon with regular yeast from a grocery store
moncorp1: dude, there ain't a moonshiner on the planet that doesn't use dry yeast.
hirodagger: @d0r0m well so far from what ive fermented no it doesnt
chris cahill: sorry to be a hatter and seam a bit like a troll but that would taste crap
if you need to run through a filter all grain recipes other than vodka are
not ran through charcoal they are just aged the tastes of how they come out
should be fine just like they are
GADJITMAN7: ??? is it possible to ferment and distill any plant ??? like my grass
kyle72513: is the air lock necessary? or would a few holes in the lid of a jug work
daddyrkingpin: @FuhrerOfGermany Yes after filtering.
Jason Zelinka: Awsome !
Chris Thomas: It's very necessary. The purpose of an airlock is to let the CO2 out
(prevents terrible off flavor I believe, don't quote me) without letting
oxygen in (spoils the mash).
stinkypacman: forgot to activate the yeast. otherwise seems alright.
madtiger111: If it has sugar, the yeast will eat, AND DIE TRYING.
SmokeyandtheBandit77: @THEDANKMAN101 i heard popcorn killed himself 2 years ago? makes no sense
since the new moonshiners show is one but must of been filmed a couple
xEMPRESSANGELIAx: yeah it is, but you don't wanna use that because it'll mess with the taste
Joe S: packaged dry yeast is crap..Try a single strain liquid yeast from if you
can find it.. wyeast lab dot com
