Cachaca Brazillian Rum

Postby Georgio » Wed Jan 02, 2019 12:00 pm

Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone has made or knows how to make a sugar wash version of Cachaca Rum? I know the wash comes from cold pressed sugar cane.
I was thinking of buying some freshly pressed sugar cane juice then boosting SG with some unrefined cane sugar and then doing a few gens. Any of your advice or thoughts would be appreciated :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Can get fresh pressed cane juice but its $15 for 2litres bloody pricey. I also found a comment on another site that didnt look very reputable but........they were still using molases (instead of cane juice) but at reduced ratio. 1kg molases to 4kg sugar for 20L. Bluc what would you advise for rum....thru the pot or bubbler? I plan on leaving the rum white.

I agree with Bluc, I do my rum with 4 plates and I like it white and only single gen.

What yeast would you recommend for a light rum? I was thinking ec118.
