Southernhighlander Posted February 12, 2018 Share Posted February 12, 2018 I have a customer who is having a problem. I think that he has some kind of infection in his mash. They are doing a grain in corn mash for Whiskey. The problem is that their distillate has a very skunky smell and taste. They have tried distilling very slowly and leaving the tails in the pot. Also their mash has a dark color after distillation. They say the mash does not have anything unusual about it when it leaves the fermenter but one thing that is very strange is the fact that if they try to ferment with the top open on the fermenter, the fermentation stops, no matter what point the fermantation is at. They can only get their mash to ferment when they have a lid on the fermenter. They say that they clean everything very well. I think that they have some kind of infection. Anyone have any ideas concerning what they can do to solve this issue? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
