Rum Distillation Raw Materials
Rum is predominantly produced using unsulfured molasses created from the refining of the sugarcane plant. Sulfured molasses has been treated with sulfur dioxide, which acts as a preservative and leaves a chemical flavor. However, you can use raw cane sugar or sugarcane juice if you don’t happen to have molasses.
Creating your rum wash is a crucial step to crafting rum. Rum wash consists of water, raw cane sugar, molasses and yeast. Combine raw cane sugar and molasses in boiling water until molasses is fully dissolved. Once both are fully dissolved, you’ll pour in cold water to cool the wash down and monitor internal temperature until 80 degrees F and then add yeast to the mixture, mix and transfer to a fermentation bucket, and seal with an air-lock and store in a dark and cool place.
Rum Distillation Manufacturing Process
Once your rum wash is settled, you’ll have to remove its impurities through the distillation process. This will create a pure and more concentrated spirit. The distillation process will remove all undesirable types of alcohol, such as acetaldehyde, acetone and methanol. You’ll add the rum wash to your still and heat your wash. You’ll run the rum wash through two separate distillations where you’ll be able to monitor the collecting distillate. Collecting your rum distillate is the final step. With trial and error, you can create the perfect handcrafted rum.
