Emily Gregory: what can u use instead of the airlock?
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).
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
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.
Reverend Ken: Go back to shine school child, what a waste.
Jason Zelinka: Awsome !
william sheppard: ur an idot dude. u have no idea wut ur doing. all ur doing is makeing a sugar shine. u need to add amylase enzyme to the cornmeal to convert the starches to sugar. all ur doing is wasting that cornmeal. it dus nothing unless u had the enzyme. u r an idot.
Kyle: Ha also laughing at no amylase enzyme. Mmm rotten corn meal mash
GADJITMAN7: ive used this method , and yes its very strong , if you keep it at the 170-175 degree range it should be good with out all the water vapor , the alchohol and water boil off at different temps .
gedion4000: lol...i was just gonna comment on that.
Rawdy Burnz: congrads dumbass..u just made rotten corn mash..u missed the first step where u convert corn starch into fermentable sugar..all u made was rotten corn meal rshidmt- laughing so hard i dropped my taco!!
Joseph Murphy: no it doesn't. Amylase is only present during spouting. If the grain is not sprouting it's not there. You can get amylase and add it but it's not in the corn meal. And you can get it on amazon.
GDR NS: Doesn't the corn meal itself contain some amylase enzyme ?
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,
vic: i made my own airlock by pulling the straw tube out of a spray bottle layn round the house and stuck it from the lid of the container to a very small container filled with water...just make sure the small container has a small hole in it too so it can breath as the gas escapes!
Ralf ich: yes, thats very important.
wcemichael: Maybe grass seeds, but not clippings.
wcemichael: Somebody has been paying attention. Good for you.
getdrunk19902: you need a plant with a starch (corn, potato) or sugar (fruits) in it and i don't thing grass has starch or sugar.
