"We" can only be correctly used by royalty or people with worms.

Copperhead road said "another place we frequent". I only frequent 1 other forum and it has to do with Barbecue, so when he said "we" I thought he might have a mouse in his pocket.
Mama told me to never drink unless I was alone or with somebody.

Ratchet straps are bloody handy things for keeping blankets and doonas around fermenters. It’s getting that time here in QLD with chilly early morning temps starting to raise there ugly heads.

Welcome aboard Buzz, Ive just put up a rum recipe that you might like to use for your first attempt. viewtopic.php?f=32&t=10196&p=141831#p141831
There are plenty of other Rum recipes to choose from on the forum also which may suit you better. The best way to learn is to jump in have a go at a few of them and find one that you like. Once you get the hang of it tweak a recipe to your liking.

Thanks SSB, I've only recently bought 20 litres of molasses for $27 and your recipe looks pretty simple. I'm guessing rum makers used 100% molasses back in the day rather than waste that exotic sugar on common people and sailors rum.

Buzz as far as I am aware most commercial rums are still made with 100% molasses.

Welcome Buzz,
I'm sure you'll learn a lot here.
One thing I've noticed on your original picture of your still, there is no surge breaker before the parrot. You need this to stop the possibility of blowing the hydrometer out of the parrot if the still starts to surge or if you miss the stage to back off power when the product starts to come over the top. Here's one style, unashamedly copied from Stilldragon.com.au.
