Making Wheat Vodka (1)!

Here are pics of Mark Elia from Long Branch Distillery making wheat vodka together with iStill’s William Vermeulen. Mashing, as you know, is the first step. Mashing is where starches are converted to sugars using hot water as a medium. In this case, the masing (and fermenting and distilling) are done in the iStill 2000. Here are some pictures!
