So, although going slow, the still I have been building is slowly coming together. But it occurred to me that I may be putting the cart before the horse. The key I think would be to master the actual distillation process first so I have decided to build a small still (a cute beastie of my own imagination!!!) to practice and to use to make some flavored liqueurs based in an already pure alcohol distillate base.
Does anyone have some resources they can share for the art of making the mash? For instance, rum, that overlooked spirit in the micro distillery world, using potatoes for vodka and/or making brandy.
I do have a lot of info already, but i just wanted to get a little discussion going and see if anyone has something that might help me in my hobby laden world right now. Thanks!!!!!
