I recently did the same thing. The difference was actually making 4
runs and ending up with 86% abv. It's still not a clean flavorless
alcohol, but it tastes good. There's just a slightly sweet finish to
the flavor. Best way I can describe it.
On my last run I stopped collecting at 180 deg. f.
- Bread taste? That sounds like a yeast-taste - which suggests that you look
at your fermentation and clarifying steps. You used a sugar wash -
1) did you pour off the wash, leaving yeast residue behind?
2) did you clarify? How?
3) what were starting and ending S.G.?
4) was this a 20L Turbo fermentation? How large is your kettle?
5) when you poured the wash into the kettle, did you end up with a clear
liquid in the kettle?
Also, how fast did you distill - it is possible that some yeast flavors were
pushed over into the distillate if the still ran too fast.
6) how many hours of distillation?
7) did you pot distill once, or twice to get 140proof.
