I been lurking for sometime. Built my own column, non reflux, with 5 gal pot and soon to have a traditional thumper.

Anyways, did my first run few days ago, did my second yesterday. I only did a simple cornmeal wash, but 2 run turned 150 proof and out of 5gal, i got .68 gal. Figured not too bad. But, hopefully my corn maize will be better. Im a little worried however, cuz it be smellin like um......vomit?

Anyways, still learnin,

and see
ya Later!

sounds like ya got an infected ferment, ya got a lid or at least a towel over the top to keep it clean?

Run it when it's done anyway, never through out anything

Welcome to the forum.

Search the forum and see how many hits you get for vomit.
