    Re: 100% Wheat Whiskey - Dry Fly

    I was thinking millet which can make a sort of beer though I suppose any sort of grain could be made to work.

    Koval, here in Chicago, makes whiskey from rye, wheat, oats, spelt and millet.

    Re: 100% Wheat Whiskey - Dry Fly

    I would like to see one of these small distillers work with sorghum. They could make a rum from the cane or a whisky from the grain.

    Re: 100% Wheat Whiskey - Dry Fly

    Unfortunately, under U.S. rules you can't call spirit made from sorghum cane juice "rum," which the rules state must be from sugar cane. Phil Prichard in Tennessee has complained about this. He makes rum from molasses and would like to make it from Tennessee sorghum too, but would have to call it a 'spirit specialty,' as there is no specific category for spirits made from sorghum.

    I know the Chinese make something they call whiskey from sorghum but I don't know if they use the grain or the juice. If fact, I don't know if I've ever heard about sorghum grain being used, although sorghum is considered a potential feedstock for fuel ethanol production.

    Not quite. Producers could petition for a rules change, which TTB has the authority to grant. It doesn't require a new statute.

    Was speaking figuratively Chuck, I presumed the changes were regulatory.

    I presumed as much but never miss an opportunity to extend some knowledge to the world.
