Ok Rad14701, What should I use then? A needle valve, like for the ice maker?
I ran my first batch of sweet feed today. Was to be three gallons but, the feed sucked so much water that it ended up being about 2 1/2 gals. Took exactly one hour to get steam through the coils and head. I took about six ounces of heads and then 18 ounces of hearts before it slowed down. All in all it took about 2 1/2 hours. What a difference than my pot still. I used the left over wash to start another wash of sweet feed. I took out four cups of feed of the old stuff and added four cups of sweet feed to the new sugar and wash. It took off bubbling in about an hour. WOW. Smells good too. The burning test for the sweet feed looks just like my Gerber pics. above. What do you think of them Rad???
