"Test Batch" Sour Mash Moonshine - Recipe #2 (Rye)
Our sour mash moonshines are produced by making multiple batches (generations) that each use grain and yeast from the previous batch. Our Batch #3 "Test Batch" was made using a combination of rye, corn and sugar along with a complimenting yeast. The following generations (7 total) were created using a portion of the leftover yeast and corn / rye mixture, backset from the previous stripping run and fresh sugar. Generation 1 - 3 utilized additions of yeast whereas the remainder of the batches began and maintained full fermentation with the yeast remaining from previous batches.
