      Subject: [Distillers] unfermented sugar



      hello all
      i have been having some problems with unfermented sugar which cloges
      up the still and wasts sugar. i have a starting SG of about 1060
      which
      is 200 grams per liter or something like that and i am using a beer
      yeast. It is only fermenting down to and SG of 1020 even when i have
      added more than enough nutrient and the tempurature is at a constant
      25 C.
      Does anyone have any idea's on what could be the problem?
      i had a thought that maybe i didn't have enough oxygen at the start
      for the yeast after reading the last few messages concerning this
      topic. Yet if i was to pump air into it, it wouldn't be clean air
      with
      all of the bacteria in the air and i don't think the fish tank
      filters
      take out bacteria does anyone know if the do?
      thanks.
      Scott
