Black Beard's Rum


  • Two pounds of Brown sugar, per one gallon of water.
  • One cup of Honey for every ten gallon Batch.


Starting Hydrometer reading of about 90. Do not Exceed 100. Add 1-3oz of yeast per 10 gallons of mash. Heat 1/4th of your water to 120 or 130 degrees, only hot enough to melt the sugar. Then stir in your sugar, then lastly, the honey. Pour it into your fermenter and finish filling with cool water to cool it down to about 80 degrees. Take Hydrometer reading and adjust as needed. Then add your yeast. Takes 6 to 14 days to ferment. Yields about 12% alcohol.
