Home Distilling Recipes – Small Batch Southern Whiskey


For this whiskey distilling recipe use 1 quart of corn syrup per 1 1/2 gallons of H2O and 1 cup of honey for every 10 gallon batch. Start with a hydrometer reading of about 60 or 65. Do not go beyond 70. Add two bags of vstills yeast per ten gallons of mash. Heat 1/4 of your water to 120 or 130 degrees or hot enough to melt corn syrup, afterwards stir in your syrup and then add the honey. Pour it in the fermenter and finish filling with cold water to bring it down to 80 degrees. Use a hydrometer reading and adjust as directed. Afterwards add your yeast. It takes five to seven days to ferment.
