whiskey yeast, mash fermentation, amyloglucosidase distillation, alcohol industry
Ready to make some excellent whiskey? Fermentation of the mash is the first and most important step. If the wrong yeast is used, nothing can be done about this later.
PITFALLS IN WHISKEY MASH FERMENTATION
Using bakers yeast.
Fermenting stronger than 8.5%
Adding yeast nutrients.
The purpose of bakers yeast is to produce carbon dioxide in bread. It cannot produce good whiskey taste in the mash. Furthermore, bakers yeast produces many unwanted substances one absolutely does not want in the whiskey.
If one ferments over 8.5% alcohol, using something other than a real whiskey yeast, the mash produces far too large an amount of fusel and byproducts. It ruins the quality of the whiskey.
Whiskey mash needs only 0.1 – 0.2 gram nutrients per liter, and they are already in the mash. Adding more nutrients will force the yeast to produce many unwanted volatiles.
