    Sazerac mash bill?

    Sorry if the question has been answered before, but a search turned up no results. Thanks in advance.

    Cheers!

    pretty sure it has some corn in it too...
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Jeez, thanks for going to all the trouble..

    Finally had a little time to search more thoroughly and I found the info in one of the BTAC fact sheets. I assume the mash is the same as the Handy.

    Cheers!

    Did you use the BTAC Info Thread?

    This is what I see there:

    Recipe
    Large Grain: Minnesota Rye
    Small Grain: Kentucky Corn; Distillers Grade #1 and #2
    Finish Grain: North Dakota Malted Barley

    It is.

    All snarkyness aside, some distillers are very tigh-lipped about their mashbills, while some are very matter-of-fact about it. I don't understand why anyone would feel strongly about keeping mashbills so secret. It's not like there's a lot of counterfit Buffalo Trace floating around.

    That's the one. Love reading those sheets, I had totally forgotten about them.
    Amazing how much is lost to evaporation.
    Thanks for re-posting the link to it, I forgot to do it myself.

    Cheers!

    Re: Sazerac mash bill?

    I thought for sure when Baby Saz came out there was some discussion of its mash-bill, but searching has revealed nothing.

    In any case, I reckon its not much above the legal minimum of 51% and less than WT 101 Rye.
