First of all, add to watch this distiller! Copper stills with flavoring column. Set the maximum heating temperature. When the steam temperature reaches 50-55°C (122-131 F), reduce the heating to medium value or low.Start the cooling water supply when the steam temperature reaches 55°C (131 F). Try to stabilize the steam between 79°C and 81°C.
(174-178 F) Main distilling part should be done in this temperature. Forecut is the first 1.5-2% of the distillate from the mash distillation volume. This distillate contains methanol and other volatile alcohols and compounds hazardous to human health. Forecut has a strongly pronounced and acrid smell.
Try to maintain the slowest possible forecut takeoff rate. This is achieved by reducing the heating temperature. Takeoff forecut into the separate container and use it for engineering purposes for furnace firing as industrial alcohol etc. If the double distillation is planned, you dont have to collect the forecut and backcut.
Take another container and collect the heart, i. The lower the distillation rate, the better the alcohol takeoff would be. To determine the moment of proceeding to the backcut takeoff, you will need 100 ml or 250 ml measuring flask and areometer ranging from 40% to 70%. Collect the distillate dripping from the pipe to the cylinder or another small container in order to determine exactly the current alcohol content in the distillate produced by the distillation still. When the alcohol content reaches 40%, you should proceed to the backcut takeoff.
If the reflux column and/or rectifying tray are used, it is advisable to start the backcut takeoff after the alcohol content falls below 50%. The backcut is characterized by high content of fusel oil and unpleasant smell.
At this stage, you can stop the distillation process. The collected backcut should be distilled separately or added to the wash before the distillation in order to increase the alcoholic content. Turn off the heating and cooling. Wait until all parts of the distillation still cool. Once this is done, remove the dome and disconnect the water supply hose and discharge hose.Remove the dome or reflux column from the distillation still. Keep your eyes open and be prepared for the steam discharging from the distillation still. If necessary, use the citric acid solution.
In case of strong oxidation, the copper activity will be reduced greatly, and you will not receive a sufficient level of removal of sulfur compounds from the distillate.
