I've got a store bought distiller, this is my second time using it.
The first time I put homemade wine & made some nice Brandy. This time I have a all-grain mash which has been fermenting for 5 days.
Once the distiller heats up enough the lid pops open & makes a huge mess. It also pours out the nozzle very quickly. It's supposed to drip slowly and the lid is supposed to stay on.
From my research it's possibly not done fermenting as it does seem very 'fizzy' (bubbly when shaken). However I am not 100% sure of the reason. Could I have put too much carbon in the nozzle?
Can I pour the mash back in with the rest of my mash? (I have 23L of mash my distiller only has 4L)
Is there anyway I can 'debug' this / figure out why it's happening? It's happened twice and I'm scared to try a third time.
