Pot still performance
- Hi there!
My first batch is ready.
I've just collected a "presto" to make a better still and I threw my
must into it.
Well, I had some practical problem (I need to work a bit on my still),
but I got alcohol ! (wow).
from a 900ml (test) batch at 10%, I got about 100ml at something like
40% (I don't have an alcohol hydrometer to verify it accurately).
but i am supposed to get about 225ml of 40% alcohol. Where did the
rest go ? Should I get more alcohol at a lower % ?
Also, since it is only a 900ml batch, should I add water to the must
to get a better control on the temperature ?
If there is people here with pot stills, can you describe me your
