    You don t slop back what you run, just your leftover mash. We use grain and when we strain our mash we slop back into a new batch of mash all of the grain

      Subject: [Distillers] Re: <<<<<<<Sloppin' Back

      Hey MooNShiNeR, thanks for the info on sloppin' back!  But several
      things that I am confused about - I would think that the boiling
      temps of the first run would kill the yeast in the slop.  Where does
      the live yeast come from for the next run?  Remnants in the
      fermenter?  Do you add new yeast?  Do you have to wait for the slop
      to cool before "slopping back"? 

      Is it the nutrients in the slop that make this technique 
      advantageous?  Does this concentrate the low alcohols and fusil oils
      in the next wash?  What effect does this have on the next run? 

      Sorry for so many questions.  I have read of this technique as an old
      moonshiner's trick.  Isn't this similar to "sour mashing"? Does this
      work only for grain based washes or would it work for those of us
      doing pure sugar based washes as well?

      best regards,
