My first Panela Rum

Postby Hawk » Sun Apr 07, 2013 2:03 am

Yesterday I did a BW run for some clean neutral to add to the panela run today. The neutral was on my packed column over a single plate. 95% at 3200ml heads to tails. Running the panela now and I'm loving the smell that is filling my room.

It does PP. I am also running with copper scrubbies in my dephlag today. With my UJ I don't but I think the flavor will still come through nicely with them. They are helping keep the flow slow and the amps needed down to a minimum.

Hit tails at my normal 88%. Ill end up with a couple gallons after airing and dilution. What an experience! I used the Dunder to desolve the last 15 pounds and it is now cooling and awaiting yeast. Thank you SugarDaddy!

It did! while it was going it looked like a rolling boil at one side of each fermenter. I used glass carboys for the first batch as I wanted to see what was going on. Plus I got to see the little bugs floating around. :confusion-confused:

Impossible to keep honey bees out of such a concentrated sugar source. I'd be surprised if the odd humming bird isn't included ;-)

nothing wrong with a little protein


It was interesting. I had a bee, a spidar, a few beetles and a few catipilars. Plus chunks of extras. LOL The wash strained out well into the boiler.

So I took and made a 80proof jar at 500 ml with the panela after 24 hours of airing. I used fresh from the coconut milk to dilute. No water. Holy crap. All I can say is wow.

Rum and coconut milk. Good stuff. Much better with fresh coconut. Not that easy for me to find here. When I was in Africa I would get one of the locals to climb up and get me one. And I would have Luke Barwalker (the bartender) fix it up for me.

Fresh was the way to go. My buddy was over and brought us a new coconut and he was amazed as to how well a hole drilled, faced to the jar and a hole on top worked for getting the milk out. Then we cracked it and did a pint with the meat of the nut too. That looks disgusting but then he came over to do some strange things. We did a pint of UJ and added a couple sticks of crispy bacon to it to sit on for a bit. LOL he says he has had bacon infused whiskey before, I think he is crazy to waste bacon like that. HAHA :violence-smack:

Has anyone ran with 2 plates? what are the differences? (3-VS-2) I'll try it both ways, but curious as to what you gain and what you loose. I would love for some of that Panela nose to carry over!

I run one plate and 3 Scrubbers. I get plenty of flavor and smells out even in the upper 80% ABV.

3 will be just a little more pure and faster. I've ran 2 and 3. I started with 2 and added the third later. Flavor is almost the same. I couldn't tell to be honest.
