Off hearts to trails ratio

Recommended Posts

I'm using a new still configuration for this rum recipe. Its a 4" column with 2 bubble plates. 3000 watt heater. 

This was a low wines run. I stop collecting hearts when the distillate was around 74% (and when I start noticing a tangy, almost sour note). I stop collecting tails around 10%.  I collected 2 gallons of hearts and 3 gallons of tails. This seems way off on the ratios.

Any ideas? 

Should I add another plate to improve separation, or increase the height of my column?
