BDF Molasses Rum Wash Recipe


2.5 kg Molasses

4 kg Dextrose or brown sugar

1 Pack Pure distilling Rum yeast

1 Pack Pure Distilling Crystal Clear

Pure Distilling Distilling conditioner

21 litres warm water (30-35 deg C)


  1. In a sterilised fermenter combine the sugar, molasses and the water, making sure to dissolve the sugar completely.
  2. Ensure the wash is between 24-30 deg C, this is the ideal temperature range you are aiming for.
  3. Now ferment the wash for 10 days. Check gravity on day 10 ensuring it has fermented all the way out (FG <1.000). Clear with the Crystal Clear, following instructions on the packet.
  4. Once fully cleared, usually 24-48 hours, transfer to your boiler & add distilling conditioner. Run still as normal.

For the best results use a pot still. Alternatively removing the packing from a reflux condenser will produce a similar result with a slight reduction in flavour.

If you’re feeling adventurous, replace the sugar with molasses for a 100% molasses run. Cheers!
