The pot is stainless steel, the condenser copper tube.

Just curious, what is your still made of? I know aluminum or pot metal will hold back quite a bit of nasty stuff if not cleaned properly.... such as a converted pressure cooker or a pot with some custom work done. Stainless or Copper shouldn't be as bad.?

This may be old news to Hausgemachters and coms but I've only discovered it recently.
After a distillation, I scrub the pot thoroughly, I drain the coolant from the condenser, and then I boil water in the pot. For a long time.
Judging from the stink in the house and the nasty stuff that still condenses, this steam cleaning seems to work.
Whatever nasty stuff is coming out now, it won't come out in the next distillation.
