Hello everyone, Finally getting to do some test batches for 100% barely mash. Mashing and fermentation is going very well. When I am getting to the stripping run however, I believe I am experiencing some issues with scorching the grain (on the grain distilling). I even finished the spirit and the taste was very good except for a off burnt smell that I believe is contributed by scorching during the stripping run. 1. Is it possible that even though the grain isn't burning, it will darken and 'roast' during distillation, possibly causing off smell? 2. at what volume of distillation would you recommend agitation? Currently I am distilling with a 26gallon mile high flute with blichman burner. System is working great other than this smell I cant decide if I need to splurge on an agitator!!! Doing appx 20 gallon text batches. any help appreciated Thanks
