Other than a good cleansing, is there anything in particular to break in a new still? I’ve seen mention of running some vinegar solution, but I can’t find that reference now.

I did not run vinegar in my set up. I ran a strip run full of water.
then another strip run using 10 gallons of cheap wine as a sacrifice run
after those 2 runs i was ready to get serious
and run a full 10 gallon sugar wash
saved that run
used it to run sweet feed whisky
