Thank you for posting that video Brutal, what i really like about it is no soccer moms, no gov't overseers. The Indian corn has made a pink colored wort, kinda looks like some kind of punch or something, this is a first for me, shouldnt be much of a surprise since the kernels are red, i would like to see some picks if any of you have had a weird colored wort.

I can buy 50 lb bags of white whole corn here at a grocery store. He said 8.00 a bag. I'd have to crack it somehow.

You can malt it first to make it easier to grind

I know it has been a very long time since my last post on this, this is the final product. I rested it for a year in my homemade 1 gal aging jar with the toasted oak lid. This bottle was cracked at my niece's wedding this past spring. I was very pleased with the drink, ufortunatley I haven't been able to get anymore of my uncles corn :(

Just a quick note for future reference... Three years into the "non-oxygen barrier PET" aging (aka pet water jugs), and it's pretty awesome on last tasting. The toasted wood chunks stopped adding to the taste after year two. But the booze itself is more mellow everytime I take a taste.. It does seem to be stabilizing though.. Taste again next year..
