Woolworths in my area have 805gm Nutri-grain for $3.75 at present. Time to stock up me thinks. I grabbed a couple of boxes today and will put down a batch in the next day or two to see what this recipe is like.

I know what you are saying. I have bought 805gm Nutri-grain for $5 in the past and thought I was doing OK. I had to look twice at this price to unsure it wasn't the small box. A bloke should buy a few more boxes. Here it is ...

I've given this out to a few people and there are no complaints. Everyone has asked if the could buy some. That answer to that is always no. It's one thing to operate a still it's another to charge for it. :D

Its good stuff. Dead easy to make and I'd suggest the best recipe for the beginner . They could pull this off without much effort.

Top marks and better than anything I could afford to buy commercially. Best thing I did was build a still as it's given me access to fine tasting spirits. Regret not doing it earlier. Everyone loved the corn rye whiskey but preferred this by a mile.

On another note I was given a commercial coffee grinder. Ground up corn with ease so I'm not giving up grains just yet!

Well done Kimbo!

Yeah mate, I just add a box to each gen. When it looks like you've got a big enough yeast/nutrigrain bed at the bottom of the fermenter, you could start removing some and replacing it with fresh stuff.

Last week I ran another first gen and here we are a week later on oak and it just doesnt taste right :crying-blue:
No flavour to speak of, kind of like a TP strip flavour, dunno what I did wrong.
Think I'll just dump this in with the second gen in a couple of weeks.

Maybe it just needs time on oak, a lot of the things Ive made really don't seem to have a lot of flavour until they have been oaked and aged for a few months.

Dunno...never refluxed it. My Best results came from either potstilling it or running it thru 4 plates on the bubbler.
Reflux stills just scrub out too much flavour.......you'd get a very nice Vodka tho 8-}

Smells like a winner for sure, can't wait to get a few gen's worth and do a proper spirit run!

Loving the nutrigrain wash. Just put down the 5th wash

I have not gone through all the pages here and I'll just post it anyway:)

Tried many ways to crush the pieces some have taken forever. Yesterday I boiled up sugar and had the kettle on. Poured sugar 10ltrs, kettle 4l and added the nutrigrain. I used used a bar-mix style blunder and it was done in a few minutes.

Piss easy and everyone loves the stuff!
