Whiskey Dephlegmator Control


Recommended Posts

I was planning on running a rye whiskey from mash through 4 plates. I'm wondering if anyone can give some tips on dephlegmator temperature control?

My plan was to run the deph temp low to stack heads and flood the plates with basically 100% reflux then slowly let off till heads come off. Gather heads till hearts and then raise deph temp a bit and gather till tails come through.

Am I on the right track here? Should I set the deph temp a bit higher and let the heads through right away?

You're on the right track. Just set the temp well below boiling and load the plates. Let it run at 100% reflux for 15-30 minutes. Then raise the temp and start collecting like you said. You'll have the hang of it in no time.
