First of all, I'm really glad to be part of this community, its a great help!
We just acquired our first 50L pot and 3 bubble plate. We did the cleaning run with vinegar as explained and went to our first experiment with the aroma basket. The first time, we distillate some 96% ethanol diluted to under 20% with tap water (we live in the mountain so we have a perfect good clean tap water) we ended up with a weird smell, bad sink/egg. We thought it comes from the water so now we are using a inverse osmosis to purify the water. Did a second batch and ended up with the same smell... After cleaning again everything and changing alcool, the smell comes again. Today, I was going to clean it and discover that the plate took all a distinctive Color lee you can see in the picture.
Does anyone as any clue about this smell... could it be the still itself?
Thanks for the help, this is getting me mad!
