I would lay the blame on the last drink that you had!

Re: choosing the right yeast?

I use 50g dry yeast in a 23 litre neutral wash. Slightly more yeast when making malt whisky. 15g of dry yeast in a 23 litre wine,usually. 30 litres of beer will get 11g of dry yeast, or about a litre and half of yeast, (live and dead) from the bottom of a previous brew. You find what works for you. ...

Re: Water Quality ?

I live in a soft water area.
Occasionally I can smell chlorine in the tap water.
But I use it for everything.
Sometimes I may 'Burtonise' it for a specific beer.

Re: Grainfather Rye Whiskey Mash

Just some thoughts; I assume you are talking a 25 -30 litre mash?. I consider your grain bill large enough, without sugar. Malt extract is pour and go. I don't boil whisky mashes. And would never add Hops to a whisky. Try searching this site for further whisky making information. Other sites are ava...

Re: Mash Bills

When the gf arrives, do a water only run. It will give it a wash through but importantly you will get to play with it, before the grain goes in and everything gets sticky. Will make the real run much less stressful. +!. Make the first mash easy on yourself, you have much to think about the first fe...
