I have been distilling for 3 years now and have recently obtained a 4 inch column still.
I am based in South Africa and mostly do rum and some "mampoer" (schnapps).
When I try to dilute my rum down to drinking strength it becomes hazy.
When I use 'n shot glass to taste the flavor and mix a small amount of distillate with reverse osmosis water, the product remains clear.
As soon as I try to dilute a larger quantity, it becomes hazy.
Does it have something to do with the amount of mixing?
In the shot glass the RO stream mixes the product vigorously, but the larger volume not as much.
Is it a problem with my cuts or just the way in which I dilute my spirits down?
Does anyone have an answer for me?
