Hoga Company 2019
THE INFORMATION BELOW WAS KINDLY GIVEN TO US BY A CUSTOMER USING 1 X 1000 LITRES WASH STILL PLUS 1 X 500 LITRES SPIRIT STILL. Both copper pot stills, whisky stills or gin stills, are hoga still brand,

For every mash into the mash tun we use 425Kg of crushed malted barley and 1,900 litres of hot water.

From

that

we

gain

1,600

litres

of

wort

(sugary

barley

flavoured

liquid)

into

the

2,000

litre

fermenter

for

fermentation.

You

need extra space for the yeast to foam up.

From

that

1,600

litres

of

wort

which

ferments

into

9%

or

10%

ABV

wash,

we

yield

around

200

litres

of

caskable

spirit.

This 1/8 rule is typical in whisky production.

The

200

litres

of

caskable

spirit

(new

make

spirit)

is

around

60%

ABV,

thus

is

(200

litres

X

0.6)

=

120

litres

of

pure

alcohol (LPA) per mash.
