Distilling alcohol uses high temperatures – generally around 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
What is the temperature that alcohol evaporates?
It’s true that alcohol boils at a much lower temperature than water (173 degrees Fahrenheit compared with 212 degrees Fahrenheit), so in a sauce, for example, the alcohol will begin to evaporate before the water does.
How much moonshine does a gallon of mash make?
A 1 gallon run will yield 3-6 cups of alcohol. A 5 gallon run will yield 1-2 gallons of alcohol. A 8 gallon run will yield 1.5-3 gallons of alcohol.
What temperature do you mash yeast?
For an ale yeast, the ideal temperature for pitching and for fermentation is absolutely below 80°F degrees Fahrenheit, and for most ale yeast strains, the ideal temperature is closer to 68°F.
