Pour wash into the still

Turn on steam on the still at pressure 10

Turn on rotor at 40

Leave all plates open

Add cool water to the condenser if needed, check thermometer.

(Steve has a system in which he cools the water overnight and store it in a container to save energy)

at around 180 distillation starts

The first alcohol coming out is cleaning the pipes from previous distillations (about 1 or 2 liters of it)

throw it out then start collecting low wines

After about half hour of drops, the alcohol starts flowing

Keep raising the temperature very slowly, so you get all the alcohols at the different boiling points.

It will get to 208 by the end of the run, which will last about 5 hours and half
