Sugar Wash
by: Phantom_SixZero on 23.Jan.2011 18:04:48
country: U.S.A

This is for a 6 gallon wash. (23 Liter)
9 pounds of sugar{dissolved in hot water}
1 tsp of citric acid
1 tsp Gypsum
2 Tbsp of DAP (Yeast Nutrient)
1/8 tsp Epsom salts
60 grams Red Star Premier Cuvee Yeast OR cup bakers yeast

Dissolve your sugar in hot water and mix until its dissolved real good.
Add the DAP,gypsum, acid and Epsom salts,and stir until its all dissolved.
Add this to your fermenter,and add enough cool water to make 6 gallons.

The starting SG should be 1070-1080SG. Don't go over 1080SG for best results.

Check the temp,and once its 95f or under,sprinkle the yeast on top.

After 15-20 minutes,give it a good stir to mix things up,and get some air mixed in. You can cover the fermenter with a cloth,or use an airlock.

Depending on the fermenting temp,this will work off in a week or two.
Don't rush it. Let it finish to dryness,and give it another week to clear before running it.

By using a large amount of yeast,You don't have to add a bunch of extra nutrients and additives to get it to work,and the less stuff you add,the less it will influence flavors.
