Yes, it appears that he does. Might be tasty.

God knows I've drank worse.

Maybe distillers yeast? White Labs has some recommendations for types of yeast to spirits.

I was thinking champagne yeast or wlp099 super high gravity yeast. I think it's a cool experiment! Good luck!

Actually, bread yeast works fine. Its cultured on molasses anyways.

champagne can lead to a brackish flavor.

Distillers yeast is similar to bread yeast, but with a higher alc tollerance and better flocc.

Di ammonium phosphate is a must for fermenting any cane sugar product. brown sugar and molasses need the nitrogen it gives.

I suggest reading the alaskan bootleggers bible, particularly the chapter on making apple jack.

Edit: in my experience, starting with about 12# brown sugar to 5 gallons water is a good starting point. I like to replace one gal water with 100% applejuice, too. A straight sugar wash can be hard to ferment thoroughly

Good stuff Southbay. I had forgotten about the bootleggers bible, great suggestions. This has me intrigued I may need to try it on a smaller scale.

Thanks! this is what I needed.

OK Peace moto.

My take is that "call me crazy..." means "I know some of you will scoff, here is a heads up that I already freaking know that. Save the lecture for someone who needs it"

It wasn't until your 2nd combative "shat water" post that I took offense.

Now you are the one acting surprised.
