Made this tool to power wash my keg

Made a cleaning wand to wash my keg.
1/2" tubing with a brass hose adapter, cut in half, soldier the hole shut and then drilled with 1/16" holes.
Works like a charm for sticking it in the keg and giving it a nice douche'.

You can cool your distillate as it come out. Any reading you take with an alcohol meter has to be corrected for temperature. The method you envisioned will work.

Re: having trouble malting corn

If you want to spout your corn for malting.
Go to a grain store ask for "seed" corn.
Some corn is irradiated which keeps it from sprouting.
This is usually used in food or as feed corn.

So it's Seed not feed.
