• 5 gallon bucket of sweet feed (Sweet feed has several different grains and molasses making it a great tasting whiskey.)
  • one package of yeast (using distillers yeast will increase quality and quantity)
  • 5 pounds sugar
  • Water

Put enough feed to cover bottom of 5 gallon bucket a good 4 inches deep

Add 5 pounds of sugar.
Fill 1/2 full with boiling water.
Mix until sugar is dissolved.
Let it set for 90 minutes and then finish filling with cool water.
Add the yeast after it has cooled to the recommended temperature on the yeast label.
Cover with lid–our lid has a little cap that screws on, leave it loose to breathe. 4-5 days later it’s ready to run!
This is an old-timer recipe and very well. Should turn out to be 150-180 proof.
For pot stills you should filter it by pouring it through a pillow case into a 5 gallon bucket after it has finished fermenting. Otherwise the meal will settle and burn in the bottom of your still.
Some folks leave the solids in the pillow case and tie it off where it will not touch the bottom of the still.
