Well i fetched it down like i said i would.


Label says 'The Buisness, Oat Mash 3, 12/8/08, 42%'.


There is such little flavour from the spirit, but what is there is a smooth melding with the oak. :)

It's lightly oaked and i have taken thesticks out (unusual for me) so it is a straw coulor.

I think that the oak sticks were in there for quite a while, but it was just one of those spirits that didn't take on a lot of oak quickly. :wink:



The flavour is mild and creamy, quite watery... the oak , as i said melds in cleanly. A very smooth spirit and definately not even a little bit bite of bite Worm, but possibly not what you are looking for if you are loooking for a particular flavour.... :roll:


All in al a very good spirit for those who don't like the 'shudder' you might get from oher grains :cry:

Sorry, that date reads in the Aussie style rather than the northern one. It is 12th of August 08, should have said that. :oops:

Punkin,

Fantastic description. I found it very easy to over oak even in just a few weeks as it overppowers the mild oat flavor.

Served white after a month of rest, it has become the ladies and the vodka lovers favorite around here. Much preferred over even some of the great vodkas.

Yes, certainly the smoothest alchohol i've ever drank as far as not having the 'burn'. Goes down like water....maybe i should float it again to make sure... :mg: :o :?


edit; Well there ya go. had me intrigued after rehashing it again, so i did.

If it walks like a duck i thought...

turns out it is a duck...after checking it with two alchometers...just over 20% :o :shock:


I don't know how it's possible, or i do know how i just don't undestand when or who or even why?

Checked a few other bottles and jars of allgrain from the same era and the same cupboard (my 'one of every batch hidden sample' cupboard) and they are all fine, just this one bottle...

Went back through my notes, it was two strips and a 5l spirit run that gave me a yield starting at 54% and running down to 24%.

Clearly at some stage it's been half emptied and refilled with water.....

But it's got me fucked who, how or why. No teenagers here, no bulk gone or anything. :doh:


Apologies for the dodgy review, guess i'll have to brew some more oats.... :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

All the booze you make and give away, and somebody decided to screw around? It's kind of funny.

Maybe it was so good you thought it had to be stolen and refilled the bottle and put it back in the cupboard thinking you'd stay out of trouble for a while.

There was only one bottle.

The total low wines were only 5l.

I grabbed a Bag of rolled Oats from Tractor Supply to try. I'm going to do it with Enzymes, and no additional Sugar.
I think the TL enzyme added at the start will keep the Viscosity down. I tied about 1# of Oats with the HTL and TL enzyme added in cold Water and brought to a simmer last night. The oats did split open, but never did turn to a goopy mess. I'm check the cooled result when I get Home Today.

Other than ease of use, are flaked Oats any better? Maybe better Conversion and of course final Yield.
I'll separate the Oats from the Liquid after Fermentation, and leave plenty of Headroom in the Fermenter. A half full 35 Gallon drum, should keep from making a Mess. I just need to figure out how to post pictures on the Forum, is there a Tutorial? I know how to take them, but posting is a different Story.

oats are hard to remove from the beer. i would try using rice hulls with it and maybe place it all in a paint strainer bag. Let drain over night from fermentor bucket drain with a good clean hose to a covered fermentor bucket after its fermented, let settle and take the most clear beer strained with a cloth to catch some extra solids. I dont think ive ever used more than 20% oats in my grain mix because of it. I put the oats in there own smaller bag. Its been a while now that I made anything to drink... need to make a run again soon.... Good luck with your oat mash
