I'd be interested to know how much priming sugar someone would suggest (without the risk of bottle bombs) while using the priming liquor. n e one brewed this using natural carb. recently?

Which appleton estate rum did you use? The v/x, special, 30 year old? Sorry, but i'm a rum noob so I don't really know which to get.

I just looked through Mosher's Radical Brewing and found the equation for calculating the sugar content of liquors. I don't have the time right now to do the math for determining the Malibu/Appleton quantities to use but here is the example that is laid out for Frangelico:

Start by measuring the specific gravity of the liquor. You have to subtract the effect of the alcohol present, which is a known quantity (specific grav 0.789) and then determine the precise amount of sugar present. For every 10 proof add 1.06 Plato to the measured gravity of the alcohol.

Frangelico is 21.6 degrees Plato, 56 proof (28% alcohol/volume)
56 (proof) x 1.06 degrees Plato = 5.91 Plato --> correction for alcohol
Add for alcohol: 21.6 + 5.91 Plato = 27.5 Plato (% sugar)
Liquor quantity: 6oz by weight x 27.5% (sugar as Plato) = 1.65 oz corn sugar equiv.
So basically 6oz of Frangelico is equal to 1.65oz of corn sugar

I am going to update this in the next few weeks with the quantities of Malibu/Appleton used but feel free to PM me with questions.

So it looks like 750mL of Malibu is plenty of sugars to meet the style on this beer. If you do the math, Malibu is 42 proof/12 Plato - 25.4 ounces (750mL) is the equivalent of 4.2 ounces of corn sugar. I brewed this one a little over a week ago and am bottling tomorrow with the 750 and 2 cups of appleton v/x. That gives me ~2.5 vol of carbonation on my batch....I'll let you know if things start blowing up...

The carbonation wound up OK but could have been a little higher. I entered this in the Sam Adams Longshot competition last year and scored a 30. The notes from the judges said the carbonation was 'meduim (on the low side for dunkel)' and 'mouthfeel should be more creamy'.

I lost major points because there were some detectable phenolics which was probably from my lack of temp control. Oh well....may be brewing this again some day, I will update if I do.
