You're well on your way to the Darwin award. (Not a good way to get started on the forum -- or in this hobby for that matter)

Really? Do you have any other proof then what the principles of distilling told you?
Prairiepiss wrote:Maybe you don't need more proof. But around here it is customary to provide proof that a material (that is thought to be unsafe) is safe to be used. This forum is geared towards safety for a lot of new distillers and old ones at that. So if proof is not provided it should still be considered unsafe.
People need to think of the safety of others around them. That they may harm. Not just themselves.

Seriously, if I run the piss out of my pot, I start to notice color coming over from a heavy rum wash. Can't help but think anything in that boiler can be pulled over. I would rather error on the safety side.

And some even bring god into the act. Now that makes sense.
And all such experienced distillers as well.

I know i would.
