    Re: Home distilling rum

    So say for a 10L wash you get 1L of like solid good quality alcohol, you looking at 2.5KG of sugar and maybe 3 sachets of yeast so under R100 for the consumables.

    Re: Home distilling rum

    I reckon that by stirring the wash every few days what its doing is just helping the yeast find the unconverted sugars "quicker", so it makes the bubbling seem to be more active, but if wash is left...

    just buy yourself a stand alone gas stove, then you can do your distilling wherever you want.
