This rye whiskey ingredient kit includes the ingredients and recipe for creating the best rye whiskey you’ve ever had! If you like the bold, spicy flavor of a good rye whiskey, this is the rye whiskey ingredients kit for you!
The kit includes 3 different grains (a total of 13 pounds), the best whiskey distiller’s yeast for fermenting those grains, and instructions on how to make rye whiskey right at home. The only thing not included with these kits is the oak. Depending upon your budget, you will want either a charred oak barrel (which can be used multiple times) or toasted oak chips.
Equipment needed for learning how to make rye whiskey:
-Fine nylon straining bag (for straining out the grain particles after fermentation)
–Thermometer (the floating thermometers are very useful for this process)
-Large spoon or paddle to stir the mash
Optional ingredients/equipment to make rye whiskey:
–Large stainless steel pot (you can also mash/ferment right in your milk can boiler)
–Fermenting vessel (you can also mash/ferment right in your milk can boiler)
–SEBstar HTL, SEBamyl GL, and ViscoSeb L to help keep your mash from getting too thick and to convert the starches from the corn into fermentable sugars.We highly recommend purchasing a 4oz bottle of both HTL, and GL. They will last you a good number of mashes, and will make your life a lot easier!
Each rye whiskey ingredient kit includes the ingredients to produce a 5-gallon wash at 8% alcohol by volume (which should yield about a gallon at 40% ABV, before making cuts).
If you have a 13-gallon boiler, you would need two of these kits to produce 10 gallons to fill your boiler!
