New to distilling. I am stripping old apple cider approx 7.5% ABV with the intent of doing a second distillation with a gin basket for vapour infusion. I am using a 50L keg with 5.5 kW heating element.
I am starting stripping run at about 50% ABV and finishing on about 10% ABV.
Question is, .. At end of stripping run, is it essential or good practice to drain heating pot before recharging OR is it okay to simply top up and continue on.
