I just tasted my first batch rum with the edv493 yeast. It has crazy amount of honey ester in it not sure what that's about :think: Not sure if good or bad yet..

Hey i have got 60L of gen 2 and 80L of gen 3 to strip its taken me until now to notice that i need to use raw sugar in the recipe instead of white how does using white affect the wash as opposed to raw some one told me raw adds a sweeter flavour is this the only thing different

I just bought a freshly made 25L french oak barrel made out of ex muscat barrel for my rums
would you guys wait for some further gens to start filling it up or just start working my way up from where im at

after gen 3 i will be continuing the gens with raw sugar

i plan on leaving the barrel for a year

also just read the whole thread as usual with most threads on this site great info

Why ec1118?
2x7gm packet's should do it. Rehydrate and pitch.
