Hey ya'll! I am new to the site and somewhat new to the rum industry. I am learning to make my own rum from sugar cane juice. My inlaws make cane syrup from Yellow Gal cane and I have been blessed enough to have all the skimmings and leftover juice i can use.

Could someone please point me to some sites that will tell me how to make rum from cane juice? I need a recipe. All of my seaching is showing to use molasses. Last year, I made some of the best tasting rum you could imagine. (Personal opinion) It just fermented on its own. This year is a different story.

Anyways, it is late here. Good night!

Is Yellow Gal the name of the species of cane your family crushes to make syrup?

Default Yellow Gal

Yes, Yellow Gal is the species they grind to make the syrup. I am still learning the process, but I know it makes a very good syrup. They do not add anything to the process, it's all 100% pure.

One of the best resources for small scale distilling is the home distiller website. There is a lot of information on this site so fill your glass before you click the link above.
I've heard of a Georgia sugar cane syrup but haven't yet tasted any.
