    Add some baking soda say about a tablespoon per gal of distillate at 60 or 70 proof ( 30 to 35 percent). Run it slow for neutral. Sent from

      Sent: Fri, Jun 7, 2013 8:50:03 PM

      I did a strip run on a 100% 5 gal rye wash yesterday  (90% flaked rye, 10% rye malt) which resulted in solids burning on the elements and a burnt smell  in the distillate. The wash once I had removed and squeezed-out the rye grains was very sticky and viscous, almost like condensed milk.  Anyway my question is, is there any way to remove the smell from the distillate? I have put a buch of activated charcoal in it and have bubbled air through it for a couple of hours but the smell persistes. Can I redistill with success, either a spirit to keep the rye flavour or a reflux run to make vodka out of it? Would be a shame to waste all that work.
