The distillation and storage of alcoholic spirits have some potentially fatal dangers associated with it. This home distiller can product very hight strength ethanol, up to 95% Alcohol by Volume (ABV) or 190 Proof. Abiding by the following basic safety rules will reduce any risk:
The greatest risk to your health during distilling is the risk of fire. Distillation involves the collection of a flammable liquid near a heat source. Thus, it's crucial to keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
Check your equipment carefully before each run. Ensure all the openings and pathways are not blocked, and all valves are working.
Never leave the running home distiller unattended.
Do not run the home distiller while you are tired, sick, upset, or under the influence of alcohol or any other intoxicating drugs.
Do not allow vapours or liquid product to be anywhere near a heat source, especially a naked flame.
Ensure that the distilling area is well ventilated and wipe up any liquid spills immediately.
Step by Step Operational Guide:
Connect your distillers/stills to the heat source and cooling water source
Carefully siphon/pump your fermented wash into your distiller/still to approximately 3/4 of its volume. The wash can foam up when first heated so do not overfill.
Bring the wash up to boiling temperature and start the cooling water through the condensers once the temperature rises to about 50°C to 60°C. Distillation starts at any point from here.
FORESHOTS: Collect up to 80°C (175°F). Discard this as it contains some amount of methanol and other poison.
HEADS: Collect from 80°C (176°F) to (91°C) 197°F, usually + 80% ABV (+160 proof). This can be re-distilled later.
HEARTS: Collect and save from 91°C (196°F) to 95°C (203°F), start round 80% ABV (160 proof) until below 65% ABV (130 proof) or personal experience. This is the best stuff.
TAILS: From over 95°C (203°F) to 97°C/ 98°C (207°F/208°F), collect until the taste and smell prove to no alcohol. This can be re-distilled.
Stop distilling the moment the temperature gets to 96°C to prevent the flavours from getting nasty.
Set aside any distillate that smells of tails/fuels. You can add such distillate to the wash of the next run, and cleaned up then.
Turn off the power, then the cooling water.
Open the lid of the distiller/stills so that it doesn't create a vacuum inside the distiller & crush it.
Wash up your distillers/stills, dry, and keep in a safe place.
