Same principle applies. "It's what you put in". If you don't have off stuff in your wash, you won't have off stuff in your distillate. Simple rules are followed as well - cut out the foreshots, save the hearts and re-distill the tails. The foreshots are used as hand sanitizer and stuff like that. That's where the vast majority of your "dangerous" stuff is located.yup, thats why i will never do distilling
i like easy recipes
im lazy that way
It's a simple science. Keep a thermometer in your column and you should be good to go. Or just play it safe and cut more than the recommended minimum. I think the risk of fire when distilling high-purity, hot ethanol on a gas stove is higher.
