Re: [Distillers] Tequila Help Me Please
- Make sure that your temp gauges (you have 2?) are calibrated. That being ok, use the calculators on the Kiwi distiller site only do it for methanol. Now rerun your batch to try and collect just the methanol and leave the ethanol behind, keep the temp steady for as long as it takes to collect the part you think is meth... Basically this is using your still as a demethalizer._____________

No its ok but Im worried its methanol. I seem to be getting a heap of
product when I equalize at 66 to 68 C and hold it there. Is this normal?
I got ovet 200ml sitting bang on 66? Im confused
