Oxidation does it matter?

Recommended Posts

if your mash gets oxidized, does it matter? I have a brewery friend who soured 20bbls of milk stout that I want to distill. it is all in kegs, how I get it out of the kegs will determine if I oxidize the wash or not. I just wonder if it matters since I will be distilling it? Any thoughts from the guru's out there?

Any oxidation will not matter.  All the big whiskey makers do open fermentation.  The only issue is if you let it sit for days/weeks after removing from the kegs and do not protect the beer.  The level of sourness will be your biggest factor in the flavor of the final product.
