- Well, I have been convinced to do two stripping runs and one slow run
from here on in. Took me a while to see the wisdom of many here who
have done this for ages! I thought that run time would be longer but
that isn't so. For anyone not doing this, and considering it, here is
Basically, I was concerned with that ol' heads smell/taste carrying
too far into my run. Filtering is not very effective at removing it
all, either. So I ran a stripping run then combined its output with
the previous run that I wasn't happy with. To cut a long story short,
two stripping runs plus a slow run would take approx 17-18 hours
whereas two slow runs would take 20 hours. I also found a much sharper
cut from heads to hearts. The heads was contained in the first 400 mls.
I still filtered it with a Z filter and I am much more pleased with
the product. There is only one filter setup, too.
Thanks to all for advice on my question on using an aquarium filter as
Cheers, and go the All Blacks!
- Good work fellas!
dropped_pie made a post a while ago that said esters should have more
attention on this group. I think we made up some ground! ;-)
