- May 23, 2013need a little more information. What kind of sugar wash (not mash, mash contains grains)
what was your ABV of the wash when you started distillation?
you say 3 gallon pot still but how much liquid in the still?
very basic ABV is alcohol by volume. i.e. 140 proof is 70% ABV.
You say 2 cups drinkable? before any cuts or after?
Im still new to this as well I run typically 4 gallons of wash in a 15 gallon reflux still from a 4 gallon wash I get a return of about 4 quarts ish total take away fores, heads, n tails im down to about 3 ish quarts per 4 gallons of wash. with about a quart of true hearts.
Hope this helps.. like I said im still new... but will lend input if I can.
