Just ran my 2" pot still from @punkin and I'm having some dramas, the equipment seems to be running great but I don't think I'm achieving the desired results. When I did my stripping run the low wines were coming out at 65%. Is this the correct ABV for stripping?
With the spirit run, the whiskey would come out at no greater than 65% ABV again. I tried turning the boiler right down and choking up the cooling to try and condense the vapor slower but this only changed it a bit (5%). So I ran it through a second time, the ABV the only got as high as 50%? So I stopped and jumped on line too seek the opinion of the stilling guru's.
What have I done wrong?
I think that the controller I am using to control the element in the boiler does not let me boil low enough.
I would appreciate any help diagnosing the problems.
