Does distilling mead produce methanol/how much comes off in the first run? So much conflicting info!
18l (ish) of mead started through a pot still & thumper keg until 1.8l (ish) distillate collected, then stopped the still.
Distillate collected in 5 batches: 250ml then 400ml X 4
Plans for making a blend with some of the remains in the still, and some of the collected batches.
Batches all look/smell/taste similar, safe to assume discarding the 250ml leaves the remaining 1.6l distillate usable?
