It appears that a lot of time, money and effort has gone into this. I really hope for still's sake it's a huge success!

BUMP.

Also keen to hear about tasting results.

I've considered getting the probiotic tablet form of Clostridium and culturing them myself, the process isn't as hard as what most people think, it just takes a little patience and not being too drunk.

Pity this thread never got an end result. Anyone know what the capsules of the bacteria are called? Very interesting read :-B :handgestures-thumbupleft:

There are an awful lot of clostridium species out there. And a lot of strains of each species. So its gonne be a bit of a hunt to find the right one with the right flavour production.

Yep. But apparently the ester formed when you react it with alcohol is pretty tasty.

If you want esters in your rum wash just do your ferment up around 35-40 degrees. Works a treat for beer. Plus there's no concern about whether you have the 'right' bacteria.

Don't bet on it, tastes like it smells and it does carry over :puke-huge:

Putting it in a barrel after might be a different thing :-B

Bit of a gamble tho.

This thread has been an interesting read. I read in a distilling book that these cultures can be easily purchased from cheese and yoghurt making kits and in probiotic form from health shops.

Here's some I found on eBay that I'm gonna try in my next single malt or rum. They're really cheap.
