Malted barley 800g

No doubt there will be variations from there, but these should get you ball park

Gents, whilst you debate weights per kg eg density, may I ask wat the final product is like? I prefer bourbon!

It is like bourbon. How like bourbon really depends on how much wood and age you give it.
There is no rye in this particular recipe so it also depends on which bourbon you like to drink.
It is a smooth corn whiskey that can be adjusted to your own personal taste

With the use of boiling water am i right that the grain doesn't need to be milled ?
