Good Whiskey


Rain Water

Preparation mode:


  1. You can buy the malt from any big supermarket, if they don’t have it, you can order it. The best brands I can think of are Blue Ribbon and Red Top. The malt is liquid and comes in a can, the yeast comes in cakes.
  2. To every can of malt you add 5 gallons of warm water, dissolve 5 pounds and add 1 cake of yeast. Mix all this together in a barrel made of plastic, stainless steel or copper, under no circumstances use aluminum.
  3. Keep it covered with cheese cloth to keep the bugs out. Keep it in a warm place till it ferments.
  4. Afterwards, you can cook it off in your still  and have the smoothest whiskey you have ever tasted.
  5. After you run the whiskey, it is clear like water. You can color it by taking a piece of dry fruit wood or maple, burn the fruit wood over a flame till it is blackened real good, then drop the burned fruit-wood in your clear whisky. In a few days the whiskey will be the color of store-bought whiskey.
