Included In Kit:

  • All Grains in Recipe, Ground and Bagged Together
  • 1 lb of Rice Hulls for Rinsing the Grains
  • 100 g of Safspirit M-1 Scottish Whisky Yeast
  • Mash and Fermentation Instructions for Best Yield


Bring 5.5 gallons of water to 155° F.  Add your mixed grains slowly, making sure that no dough balls form.  If you have a 24” x 24” Grain Steeping Bag, use it here.  After all of the grain is mixed in, make sure that you’re mash is at 148° F.  Let it sit, covered, for 60 minutes.  Separate and wash the grain however your system is set up.  The grain will absorb approximately 2 gallons of water, so add back 2 gallons of water to get to 5.5 gallons and bring to a boil for 15 minutes.  Cool to 75° F and pitch your yeast.  Cover with lid and airlock and allow 2 weeks for fermentation to complete for a clean wash.  From there, add to your still and distill using your normal process.  If you are oak aging, we recommend aging at 125 proof for 2 to 6 weeks using an half of an American Medium Spiral per quart, then diluting to 80 - 100 proof, depending upon what tastes the best.  Proof down slowly, 10 or so proof at a time, until the Bourbon style whiskey tastes exactly how you want it to.   Try not to drink all at once!
