- Oct 31, 2013I also throw the leftovers from the previous run into my wash after it's completely fermented out. Never had a problem. Although mine is usually about 60%. Prior to doing this, I always forgot to use it when making a run and always have about 600+ ml left so this really simplified things. I've had my wash sit for 3-4 months in the past but then again it's right around 20% give or take so that also discourages spoilage.

Â I'm doing sour mash and the feints are put back into the fermenter after distilling, after all it still has at least 45% alcohol in it, not by volumn, by %. Â So, to directly answer your question, no.
