Dallas Dhu Distillery - 8

The mash house is dominated by the mash tun, a great cooking vat.

The mash man mixed the grist with hot water to form a mash which was stirred slowly in the mash tun to release the sugars and starch from the first. This was hot and potentially dangerous work with the mash heated to around 65 degrees centigrade.
