      Are you doing your cuts properly and not trying to be selfish with distilling all that you can.  I had a white haze in my product when I first started but when I learned about doing my cuts properly I have never since had this problem.WB

      I normally collect to ~30% so I guess that should confirm it isn't the issue.

      Never used hypochlorite...I'll check it out.

      Thanks.

Not positive what it is but I'm thinking it was from using Star-San sanitizer. The bottles were drip dried but definitely not fully rinsed of the sanitizer. I'm assuming this was the issue because I noticed a large amount of haze collecting on some of the first vodka run through our tube for filling. I set that aside since it is probably got a relatively larger amount of sanitizer in it.

From what I've described with the first bottles being more cloudy it seems like it would definitely be the issue? But why wouldn't it have happened before!? When you shake up the vodka it dissolves again...
