hawk Posted April 12, 2011 Share Posted April 12, 2011 At ADI last week, I thought we'd solved the problem. We're getting clear distillate even cut to 40%, but when we add water (including a melting ice cube), it clouds. Two separate people said chilling very cold will cause the oils to drop out and cause cloudiness, and then you can filter them out. Tried that today and it stays clear even in the freezer. Only thing that works for us is first diluting to produce cloudiness, then filtering, then re-distilling. Hate that last step! We hope this is an oddity of our simple pot still during our test period, and that column and bubble plates will fix it. But does anyone know why we're getting cloudiness only with dilution and not with freezing?
