Getting Soggy AF with Irwin

That run did not yield well. I'm certain the corn wasn't cooked enough, so the the starches never fully gelatinized.
I ran a new wash and corrected. The result was much better. I added some apple nectar and about 6 lbs of sugar on a 9 gallon batch.
The result was better, but it still appears the temps get too high before the dripping occurs.
This is either an insufficient level of alcohol in the wort, or too much restriction on the worm.
I think it may be more the latter.
The 3/8 tube seems to restrict the flow of vapors from the large pot.
I got a decent yield, but the higher temp required to push the vapors through brought unwanted fussels that don't enhance the taste.
I may need to hack this mutha.
The first quart out was very good likker, but it should have been closer to two before the flavor began to diminish.
I'm aging that quart, so it should be a very nice bourbon, or facsimile.
A real bourbon requires new oak or oak that has never touched higher than 80 proof. My oak slats have seen both.

Since I make likkur, I also play the banjer.

the intolerance of the old order is emerging from the rosy mist in which it has hitherto been obscured.
