Of course, the “best” way to make bourbon is with 100% grain and corn. Unfortunately, that’s no small feat, especially when you are new and don’t have lots of equipment. There is nothing particularly tricky or complicated about it. But there is a HUGE learning curve for a new distiller!

This recipe is built to make that first step into all-grain distilling welcoming and foolproof. You CAN make this and you DO NOT need all sorts of fancy stuff to do it.

The Recipe:
4.7kg (10.36 lb) of cracked corn
2.75kg (6.06 lb) of distillers malt (for the main mash)
0.5kg (1.1 lb) of distillers malt to keep corn thin
0.5 kg (1.1 lb) of torrified wheat
0.5kg (1.1 lb) Shepard’s delight (can sub for extra special malt)
0.175kg (0.385 lb) of light chocolate malt

5.8kg (12.78 lb) of table sugar
0.25kg (0.551 lb) of honey

40g (1.41 oz) of AM-1 yeast
Can use bakers if you want. Use 90+ grams
