    They should have it yes, in the equine sections. Careful not to overpay. I can now get, if they have stock, a 25kg bucket for around R200 and sometimes even less. As jy belangstel, skree, ek help graag.

    EDIT: En daarmee bedoel ek, as jy rum soek, WhatsApp my dan gesels ons en ek sal jou gee wat ek maak. Die goed is vrek lekker selfs net so rou uit die ketel uit, met Coke. Skop soos 'n donkie, maar dis nice want ek gooi net enkel in plaas van dubbel op dieselfde glas.

    Pretty much the same price, yeah. I found a source that can supply me a bit cheaper though, so I want to see if they have stock, and if so, how much, before sharing that here. If Willem wants me to make him some rum, I'm going to get him to buy me a bucket of that, with a bag of sugar and then I can make a crapload of rum for pretty cheap.

    I agree. I have also found Molatek to be cheaper than Voermol. I recently paid R140 for a 25kg bucket of molatek, and then you have a useable bucket.

    The Coop sells Voermol and is a little more expensive

    Where on earth are you finding 25kg buckets of molasses for R140.
    For those of us that are in the "city" animal feed molasses is just not available.

    Hi ColeGP, I went onto the Moletek website, selected contact us, selected the Eastern Cape province, and found the rep for this area and his contact details are all there.

    I bought four buckets now in December at R141.31 each.

    Have a look, I think your closest rep is possibly Heidleburg. Hope you come right

    Regards Fred

    Mid feeds Off Oliphantsfontein has them for around R154 for a 25kg bucket.
    The buckets make for a great fermenter as well.

    I am somewhat surpirsed at the price of brown sugar - paid R189 for a 10kg at chekkas - seems a lot more expensive than the white stuff.

    I spoke to a friend in Pretoria, he bought a 25kg bucket of Molotek at the “Obaro Farm Shop” for R136. This might be excl vat I am not sure.

    I understand there are a couple of these outlets in the Pretoria area

    Rum at least you can get away with a few weeks of aging vs years.

    Exactly. Hell, you can drink rum completely unaged. White and unaged and flavoured rum is a thing.

    Anyway, mine's not going to be unaged. I'm going to age it for at least a month before the competition. Here's a picture to show how it looks right now:



    That colour is 99% from the virgin American Oak in there, and I love it. It's going to be a lot darker once I add the molasses and backset, but so far it looks great. I've so far added just the oak, the vanilla extract (wanted the vanilla seeds to have contact with the alcohol) and glycerine. I added glycerine on the low end of the scale so I don't overpower the flavours, and it is, according to me, undetectable. So far it's just a sweet, slightly oaky drink that goes REALLY well with cola.

    Ask WAJ what he thinks of it :P

    Toasted or charred? That looks like charred to me. Virgin oak or pre-used?
