Reply To: Pseudocereal Complication

 Nate Powell

Hey Molly, Anytime you introduce something that is not considered a cereal grain into your mash bill it becomes a Distilled Spirit Specialty. From my understanding one area that this can get complicated is with sorghum, depending upon which part of the plant you use. Pseudocereals are grains and the CFR doesn’t define what is and isn’t a grain so I *think* TTB would allow it to be classed as simply Whisky and then you would include the type of grains in a separate statement.
