The tried and tested Kale wash recipe.

I have tried it with both 4kg & 5kg of sugar.

This is a big favourite of mine for sure.
Produces a very neutral clean spirit and
is a cheap wash. Win win. :D

Ok, quick question please.
I was thinking that the kale wash was just about finished as it was hardly blooping.
I've just checked it. It's still at 1006 so probably not quite there yet but is seems to have changed colour a bit. It's now a bit pinky. Is that normal?! It's been going 17 days but I've been good this time and left it to its own devices!

I think for the few points you will gain it is probably best to run it. What you is something to play with - crack on lass. If you can rack it or I leave the sediment behind all the better.
I would not worry too much about clearing it or degassing it.

The colour change could be vitamins from the Kale juice.

I got so close to trying this wash a few days ago,
Cooked the kale for supper, saved the cooking water, with good intentions, got distracted.
Two days later it was full of flies and fizzin'.
Will try again next week, with the next kale picking.

Freezing the water until use, good point, taken on board,
Another kale supper side dish due in a day or two, will try not to waste the boil water.

What are the negatives of using more kale in a wash?

(eg 250g from a lidl bag, all used in a 25 litre wash)
Slowly slowly, catchy funky

Don't stress the yeast
