      I am not normally in any hurry to distil so mine is normally very clear by the time I am ready to do so. At the moment I chuck the
      bin on top of the toilet seat downstairs and let the tap go straight in. Easy as...

      Hi Paul and welcome aboard. I always let my mash sit until the solids drop
      to the bottom of the fermenter this may be 2 to 4 weeks. I then open the tap
      and let it drain into the boiler. I then do a stripping run, fast and loose
      collecting all to 100C (212F). The resulting low wines are ~40%ABV. I then
      do a slow fractionating run.



      What you will find is that any yeast sediment that finds it way into the
      boiler will burst causing a smell to be emitted (similar to making a split
      pea and ham soup). While it's not a foul smell any inquisitive neighbours
      may start complaining.



      Yours in Spirit

      This is my first post on this group and my first go at
      distilling.I'd like to ask a heap of questions but for now I was
      wondering if you can run the wash out through the fermenter tap or
      would it be better to syphon out to avoid stirring up any sediment.I
      have two brews nearly fermented out and was going to let them stand for
      about a week before distilling.Is this the right way to go.Thanks for
      any help. Paul
