Dont know if this is the same subject but....
Tonight I put a brew through and noticed when i got to around 82ish
deg I was getting a bloody strong sulphur smell
I sterilise with sodium metab (sulphur dioxide)but always rinse after.
this last brew i used a different brand,can this stuff carry over?
Anyway, I took 4.9L @ 84% (uncorrected) from a SS Reflux with the
marble still in but with a stainless scrubber in the head.
I've had an extention built for it but wanted to compere the
difference between the last brew (when I used it) and this one.
I dunno but the distillate started coming over at 79 deg and I
stopped keeping the good stuff at 85 deg. The temp shot to 93 deg
gaining another 500mls which will go into the tails pot.
