I would hit it with finings or let it settle. Even just three or
four days of settling would be better than running it while it's
cloudy. The yeast will burst during distillation and add a "nasty"
flavor to your whiskey. In fact, my friend (who has a very good
sense of smell) claims that one of my batches smells "yeasty," and
what do you know, that was the batch that I didn't let settle. I
can't smell it, though.
