So, to catch you all up, the spring run ended alright. There was nothing to write home about (or blog about for that matter). The yield was low, but that’s not a surprise given the fact that we had to shift the wash around so many times due to the leak in the fermentation tank. The jackassery mixing the turbo 48 yeast with the about to expire whiskey yeast was also a complication. In short, we took the last run as an opportunity to bring a friend up to speed with the fermentation and distillation process. We took the lessons learned from the spring run and did some good stuff in the fall.
That’s where we pick up our tale. Let’s take a trip back, waaaaaay back to September, 2016.
