HAD TO STOP RUN IN THE MIDDLE

Postby randycisme » Sat Jan 26, 2013 7:26 am

Good Morning,
I had to shut down my 5Gal Pot Still last night and I don't think my run was completly finished, can I fire it back up today and continue the run?

Hey Bushman, Ive wondered and thought about this and ive only had to do this once. But when I restarted, I took off foreshots again and noticed a heads smell from it, so I just started up again like it was a brand new run.

So what im asking is, was I doing correctly by removing the foreshots again, and just running like it was a new run??

i have had to do this a few times also myself, and is normal to pull some heads back out. i cant say that i have ever noticed foreshots tho, this is covered here in several threads in a more detailed fashion.
