Really old rum wash

Postby Fishleg » Sun Jan 02, 2022 2:17 pm

Hey all.
Haven’t done any stilling for a few years, and have about 150 litres of rum wash that’s been sitting in my shed since 2018.
I know there’s been questions asked about washes sitting a long time but couldn’t find anything referring to this length of time.
It’s in an olive barrel with a tight lid but there is a hose for an airlock which has just been hanging down the side.
Nothing growing on top, smells kind of acidic/ carbon dioxidey

What do you all think? Worth a run?

Cheers
Fishleg

Go ahead and strip it mate to get some low wines for the spirit run, a couple of runs will soon sort it out and ya never know you may get that manky rum lovers just aim for.

Still haven’t done it yet. Hopefully should get round to it soon.
