Mash

 

the residue of alcoholic production by distillation of grain, potatoes, or molasses. Mash contains 92–94 percent water and 6–8 percent dry matter. It is used as fodder for animals in its fresh, dried, and ensiled states. The nutritional value of fresh mash ranges from 3.2 (potato mash) to 12.2 (corn mash) feed units and from 0.6 to 1.7 kg of digestible protein per 100 kg of feed. Dry mash has 60.2–102 food units and 12.6–14.9 kg of digestible protein. Fresh mash is generally fed in a mixture with threshed fodder; adult meat cattle get 70–80 liters (I) per head a day, younger animals 40–50 I, dairy cows no more than 30 I, and work horses 12–18 I. Chalk (30–50 g per head) is added to mash to neutralize the lactic and acetic acid. Mash is preserved by freezing, ensiling, and drying. It is ensiled in a mixture with threshed fodder and is fed to meat and dairy cows. Dried mash keeps well and transports readily. In animal rations mash can replace part of the concentrates.

Congress passed a law in 1964 that defined and still protects bourbon's integrity: It must contain no less than 51 percent corn mash (although that mash can contain malted barley, rye and wheat, as well); must be distilled at no more than 160 proof; cannot be placed into a barrel higher than 125 proof; and must be aged for a minimum of two years in a charred, new white oak barrel.
While the poor-performing seal was a problem, the scenario was complicated by the physical product created at the facility: a sticky, yellow corn mash containing 30% to 35% solids that typically required double seals.
In The "Cold Microwave" process, the state-of-the-art ethanol plant pre-cooks the corn mash using our low-energy ultrasonic "cold microwave," and then when it is cooked it can have more valuable sugars released for making fuel.
