    Making Rum From Scratch

    Ahh that's great, It has been a great taste so not so worried now about strength, great idea about throwing heads in, I obviously can only distill 5 litres at a time so can through heads into next 5 litre batch. Wonderful instructable thank you so much.

    Great steps thanks. I've done this twice now, lovely rum, however my hydrometer has never read anywhere near 75%, the last batch started at around 60%. It bubbles perfect for 10 to 12 days and slowed to few bubbles. Why is the strength so low?I'm using a 10 litre copper pot still. Careful to not allow any leaks.Thanks for any help.
