    I like your setup.

    Mine is very much the same. My Urn is just much smaller.

    I'm sitting with it as I type. Bonding session.

    Hi Jelo,

    Are you able to share in open forum or is your recipe a state secret?

    ya that wasn't going to work, when they use cane juice its literally the juice from cane that's been pressed through rollers, like that all the sugar is trapped in the cane.

    Yes I know Cole, been to the Tapanga distillery and spent some time with Grant during the process. Rollers crush the cane and the husks are used to fire the boilers.

    As stated earlier, I am experimenting so please bare with me. Yeast in itself is another fascinating subject ( my experience is with breads) so I wanted to get some sort of idea what wild yeasts are resident on the cane itself. Therefore the inclusion of the charred husks of the cane.

    Try hardware shops Plunger, I got mine from one. But for fermenting it is not ideal, the rum wash ferments and foams in a rather excited fashion the first three days when molasses and sugar is used. This leaves a residue on the shoulders of the container which you can't get to for cleaning so a 20l bucket with lid is better, I just couldn't find any decent ones when I started.

    Then again, on the other hand old yeast is always beneficial perhaps so I'll continue using the isighubu.

    No worries Cole. Out of interest, what store bought rum do you prefer or enjoy?

    I am not fond of a "spiced" rum which reading the recipes posted here is perhaps going to replicate. But will try it nonetheless as these are babysteps and knowledge is crucial to get to some semblance of understanding.

    my current favorite is from a cape town distillery called "floating dutchman", something about the blackstrap mollases they use and their aging that I really like, haven't been able to get any for a while though.

    Go watch about "dunder pits" on the still it channel on youtube, thats a whole other level when it comes to trying to bring in flavours into rum.
    I honestly don't think I would be brave enough to do it myself, besides which swambo would kill me if I had to leave out live yeast for a couple of weeks to "see what grows".
