First Mac Rum

Postby Craiguzzi » Fri Mar 15, 2019 9:06 am

Just running first Mac rum after cleaning and sacrificial run. I am getting a little (very slightly) bit of discolouration (scum?) on my hydrometer. Not present when doing previous runs. Has anyone else seen this?

Stripping run
No discolouration of spirit
Just slight brown tinge on hydrometer after about 15 minutes
I am in bright sunshine so it is more visible

I would agree with a puke. If not maybe some cheap got in your parrot or still since you last used it?
