Q: Hello I have the mash and brew and the J45 kit and the mash is fermenting but I noticed the cooling tubes are not sealed where they go into the angled copper distillate tube do they need to be sealed or do I need the steam to come out there?

A: All of the pot stills that come with the J45 distilling package are manufactured like that. There is no need to seal the areas surrounding the cooling tubes.

Q: Can you put copper mash in side the 3" column to make it more efficient? I see this done in column pot stills.

A: In theory it should work. We have never tried it, therefore we can't recommend it. The best thing to do is use a dedicated reflex still.

Q: About how much water is normally used to mash in the grain? The PDF instructions are kinda vague on that.

A: Typically, around .35 gallons of strike per pound of grain or adjunct.

Q: How long does it take to get a gallon of whiskey?

A: To get a whole gallon from a 5 gallon ferment would be hard, as the wort would have to be of very high gravity (1.090 or higher). More realistically, figure on getting 3 quarts from a typical whiskey mash with a starting gravity of at least 1.065. As far as time, the mash ferments for about two weeks before being run, so figure 2-3 weeks to get 3 quarts of raw white whiskey.
