Distilling on grains in an electric still *WAS- Re: Corn conversion...
- View SourceLook Guys, I know distilling on the grains is a big no-no in an eletric
still but has anyone tried doing it by placing the grains in a Mesh sock
and suspending it above the element? Like a big tea bag. You could
filter out the really coarse pieces in a strainer and then remove all
the fine pieces too small for the mesh strainer in a piece of cloth to
prevent them from burning. You should end up with just liquid and bigger
bits that wont go through the fine mesh. Chuck the mesh bag in with the
grains in it (with some sort of protection to keep it from touching the
element) and bobs your uncle. I don't do grain as it's too much trouble
but if it works it might help out you guys that want to.

And one more thing. I believe to make good wiskey, you must ferment "on
the grain" and sparge before distilling. Some will distill on the grain
also, but you must have a still built for that or you'll have a nasty
mess at the end.
