Re: Sealing issues?
- Hi Easy,
First, let me say you're not giving us enough info, but not knowing
what I'm talking about fully has never held me back before, so, here
goes. The first thing that comes to mind is, your whiskey is
to "young". It takes a few weeks for the water you deluted your whiskey
with to fully mix with the ethanol.
That being said, now we come to the "info" part. Did you delute your
product with water, or did you distill all the way out to an average of
60%? If you did the latter, your whiskey is still young, but you may
have other issues. What may be collecting on the lid is higher
alchohols evaporating out of the still volitile mixture. Either way,
don't worry, it's not uncommon. JMSO.
Tip one, Morgan
