PeteB Posted August 12, 2011 Share Posted August 12, 2011 Recently I ran a post called "Slightly continuous fermentation" Here is another of my techniques that I think is "outside the square" that others may wish to adopt if there are no negative replies. Normally a whisky wash pot still can only be filled to around 85% of its volume to allow for foaming when boiling first starts. Recently I produced too much wash to fit into the still and I didn't want to waste it. About an hour after the foam died down I started to very slowly pump the surplus wash into the still through the drain valve. Also as the spirit was evaporating out, the level in the pot kept dropping so I kept adding wash. There was only a slight amount of foam produced as I added wash. There is a glass inspection hole in my still to watch what is happening. I normally put 500 Litres in, but with this method I can do at least 650 litres of wash and get a much higher output of low wines and alcohol PeteB Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
