Mashing technique: oil reduction

Recommended Posts

hello all: 

curious if anyone has a suggestion for mashing technique with cereal grains that results in a less oily low wine/high wine. 

I know, of course, I can filter post, but I thought yall may be able to help with a way to keep it out of the mash some from the get go. 

thanks!

I am guessing you are doing on grain distillation? 

What kind of still are you stripping with?

Correct! I'm distilling on the grain, with a 4 sieve plate hillbilly still flute on a bain Marie pot.

A small copper thumper/doubler would clean your spirit up some. Sorry I do not have any mashing techniques to help.

  here a plan for u let your feints, low wines or high wines cool in a open top vessel , all oily stuff should float to surface , once its floating lay paper towel on top and let it float , all the oils will stick to paper towel , drain the vessel from bottom and leave the oil soaked paper towel behind , alcohol will drain out of the paper towel and the oil will remain in the paper towel . not telling u why i know this lol
