Cool. Will do. and if it is still cloudy, I'll filter it. Hell it's only going to be like a liter anyway.

This may prove to be a bigger problem if I like it and decide to do bigger batches.

Sweet! Fancy unit or a hidden gem? Calibrated thermometer?

nice! Whats the ABV on that? We might be able to calculate what sort of yield one might get, and potentially a rough estimate for post-separation ABV.
