  1. I have a question. Why not distill on the grain and avoid all of the hassle? My grandfather distilled great spirits from corn, rye and barley and he allays distilled on the grain. He used the cook method sometimes, but he usually malted his own corn and distilled a great white dog from it, that made an excellent "Charter Whiskey" (Bourbon). His spirits never had even the faintest hint of bitterness. I don't understand why people go to such great extremes to separate the liquids from the solids when using corn and rye. It doesn't make sense to me.

  2. Copper carbonate? It's green. You said you use soda ash, right? Maybe residual soda ash, not complete neutralized by the citric or rinsed out by the hot water reacting with the copper condenser. Have also heard of excessively gassy (CO2) charges can also cause lime green distillates.

  3. Silicone should not be a problem, EPDM for example should be avoided, can get leachate in the spirit.
