This turned out to be a very nice drop :handgestures-thumbupleft:

The experiment I am currently doing is this:

2 Large boxes of Nutrigrain
5 Kg Raw sugar
25 L water
Lowan's yeast
Run it thru the bubbler
Age on Oak


I will report back and let you all know how it turns out :handgestures-thumbupleft:

About to head to the supermarket do you reckon 2 or 1 big boxes in a 23l ferment?, a big box here is 500grams.

Grab 2 boxes mate... Especially if you're going to crush the cereal first, it crushes down to pretty much nothing.

Over here, a big box is 800g and I used 2 of them ;-)
if yours are 500g then maybe use 3. its up to you, you could always use 2 boxes in each subsequent generation :handgestures-thumbupleft:

I have just completed the wash as described.

Please add this to the T&P. This is very nice and gets top marks.

I've just got back from the shops with more sugar and nutrigrain.

The only change was to bring the wash up to heat and then turn off the element and come back 5 hours later to start the stilling process. I did this after watching moonshiners and they were discussing the best batches are done in the larger boilers and they believe the cooking time helps favours to carry across.

Great mouth taste an very pleasant after-taste.

I generally use raw now for everything, but I think the original recipe was with white.
It doesn't really matter, what ever you prefer :handgestures-thumbupleft:

My NGW was the best thing I have made.

How much of this stuff do you think I would need for a 200l wash?

Didn't follow 100%. Used home brand nutri grain, and not sure if the ratio of sugar remained correct. Thanks anyway, I will have a crack and see what I make.

i would assume about 80grams of yeast, or 1/4cup, or 6 tablespoons of lowans would suffice
