Using Malt

Postby DeejeyTas » Tue May 15, 2018 4:47 pm

I am thinking of adding a tin of Saunders Malt Extract to a 25l wash with 6 Kg sugar. Will it make any difference to the flavour of the distilled spirit. What is the thinking on this???

Yes it would be whiskey-ish but I would not use 6kg sugar in 25l. Personally would use more like 4kg per 30l.

In my ujssm I add a tin of Saunders and I like the taste that carries over.

One tin will be a weak flavour change. The malt tin will add sugars and subsequently alcohol.
:text-+1: with bluc 4kg and one tin or 3kg and two tins for a stronger flavour.
Is it a uj your making or something like tpw? Cause I don't think tpw is any good for a flavoured wash.
Uj bwko or something like wbab would all work well

Only ever make BWKO but never tried adding malt before simply use sugar and turbo 48 yeast always get great results. Have made heaps of it.

Try a whiskey yeast or even a bakers yeast and I recon you'll find it'll taste even better :handgestures-thumbupleft:

:text-+1: on different yeast. Saf spirit malt is good and I'm currently getting good results with us05 American ale yeast. 500gm bricks last a long time even longer if you reuse the yeast cake
