Bought this kit recently. I'm planning to use Knob Creek Small Batch 9 year old Bourbon. I'm
also planning on using some vanilla bean. Should I soak the vanilla bean with the Bourbon and
oak cubes or ...

I'll check my notes when I get home but I'm thinking about 6-7 weeks. That includes the 10-14

a couple op...

My husband and I brew moonshine, and we're looking for a bigger fermenter. Is there a glass
carboy out there that is bigger than 6.5?Yes, I've found the big ones are called demijohns.

It looks like things are going to work out just fine. In the past month I have received and
assembled the King Kooker, plus a 10 gallon Megapot with valve and brewmometer, and a keggle

Did you stabilize the must before back sweeting? It is part of the process of making skeeter
pee. If you did all yeast is dead now and can't carbonate.My thoughts exactly - if you use the
