Re: [Distillers] WHITE CLOUDY SPIRIT
I also tend to agree with Deb - you are cooking it too long and ending up
with too much tails!
I am finding it rather interesting in that you are not getting any off
taste or smells though - most unusual!

If you are getting a cloudy product you are cooking it too long. Water
causes cloudiness. Hope this helps!

Hi fellow distillers,
I have recently built a nixon stone type still
with 1.2 meter column which seems to work very well,exept when I mix water
with my 95% it goes miky looking.I have tried rainwater and distilled water
from another still both with same results. First run of the still I may
taken a little too much spirit and collected some tails. Could this be the
problem, and maybe there could have been some tails residue in the ss
scrubbers on run number two.There seems to be no off smell or flavours.
Any suggestions muchly welcome,

- Does the cloudyness go away by itself after a few days ? I've noticed some
of mine doing this, because of fine air bubbles in it, coming from air that
had been disolved in the water. It cleared by itself.
I've had another lot, which was cloudy at 90%, once it had cooled down.
But it went away when diluted down to 40%. I was also suspecting that it
was trace amounts of tails in there. So, just made sure that I used a
strong essence with it (used an Ouzo one)
