Crossbred generations.

Postby shortcut » Mon Mar 12, 2018 5:13 pm

Yesterday I ran a wbab through the still and used the backset in a cornflakes wash. In about a week I will use that backset in the next wash I do. It could be a cfw or wbab. I like both.
I don’t know how it will turn out yet but I expect it to be tasty.
Does anyone else do this?
Did I invent it? If so it’s called doing ‘a Shortcut’.ha.

What if it tastes like shit? Then we’ll all be calling it “doing a shortcut” for all the wrong reasons :laughing-rolling: :teasing-tease:
Nothing wrong with experimenting, let us know how it goes :handgestures-thumbupleft:

I can't see any real problem with doing that. Some say backset is more about ph than flavour anyway. They are pretty similar washes with similar flavours. Let us know how it goes.

I've done it many times usually used backset on a bourbon wash to start a UJ or vice versa.
Last one was weetbix neutral backset to start a UJ.
