I've let my washes sit on the lees for a couple months at a time, simply because with all the beers, wines and meads on top of my likkers, I forget from time to time. I had nice results with them too, not absolutely sure that the extended wait before distilling was the reason though. I would suggest not letting it sit so long next time. I also wouldn't throw it out. Run it again.
I have a very assertive way. It's wake up, move your ass, or piss off home.
12 Quart SS Stockpot, simple potstiller. Mostly running whiskey and rums.
