New guy on the block!
- Hi guys, I'm glad to meet all of you and read your wonderful posts.
I would also like to thank Tony for his informative website.
I have a couple questions, hopefully you guys could lend some advice.
I recently made my first batch in my reflux still, I was amazed to
the clearity of the distillate I got. The only problem I have is
distinct smell of yeast. The mash I used was a sugar/water mixture,
and I distilled to up to the temperature of around 82 and then quit.
What would be the easy way to carbon polish my distillate? I tried
running it through a Brita Water filter twice and it helped but has
not totally cleared up the smell?
My other question would be, could I put in too much sugar or yeast
making the mash? I don't think I used too much yeast, I have heard
before that you don't really need alot of yeast because it multiples.
Is this true? Out of 10 gal. I only got out 1 and half bottles, Could
I have put in too much sugar?
Thanks, all suggestions are appreciated
