I know PositiveOutlook did some peach wine batches, I personally can't help you but I'm sure that he'll be able to help you once he logs in and see this thread

Hmm I don't think he has, well he never mentionned whiskey making in the chat, and it seems like the kind of thing he'd brag about lol

i only did a corn mash moonshine batch in a pressure cooker still with copper line..... it was more a experiment then anything.  protip: toss first few oz's of shine that comes out the end... apparently its poison.

making wine is fun and u dont need a still


My buddy has this plastic distiller he actually bout from a store called moonshiners.  Basically it slowly distills the alcohol over night, into a middle part.  Its not as potent as a moonshine still.... but he makes good booze in it :thumbup:

he even puts wine and shit through it too to make it strong.  And adds jolly ranchers to his batches to flavor them :crazy2:

:whathesaid:

It really is poison man its like 190 proof, It will burn blue on a spoon!!

However my old boss loved that shit. I had to tell him ,if he drank all that i gave him it would kill him.I gave him a fifth. He ended up mixing it with some apple pie shine i gave him too.

I am making my own pot still from a stai less steel stockpot with a copper coil condenser... I have never done much looking into wine making g but it sounds fun... oh any the first bit you have mentioned about throwin g away is true, reffered to as fore shots , this contains largely methanol , highly toxic... this is where the you can go blind myth came from. Safety and proper procedure will result in a safe drinkable high % ethanol. Cheers

I've done a bit of distilling. If you have some specific questions, I'll do my best to take a crack at them.

I can say for sure that I have a good corn mash recipe.

Heat 4 gallons of water and 5 lb of cracked corn to 150F for 1 hour. Cut the heat and add in 5 lb sugar. Cool to room temp and pitch your yeast. Ferment until done.

Check homedistiller.org. That's where I learned most of what I know.
