So the other day in the wee hours of the morning, I had a very minor crude spill (just enough to make me change glove. one of which i dropped by the door. came back to find ant eating only the spots that had crude on them, moving around not stuck at all!
anyone else ever observe somthing like this?
noticed the bees are fond of the trim too…
That’d be amazing if they could detect sugars in that small of concentrations! But would make sense
But I dont buy the flower explanation for the bees lol. The floral composition is way different than the flowers they pollinate. But I could very well be wrong
Well in your distillate there should not be any but if they where present in your crude the will be left in the boiling flask and they are a bitch cleaning thats for sure
A water or brine rinse solves that if it is a problem
I’m saying once the mash is distilled into ethanol
Like once fermentation is complete there will still be unfermented sugars and starches and shit but once distilled and then redistilled there shouldn’t be sugars left from the alcohol
@_joe He’s saying the sugars are picked up by the alcohol from the extraction material, not in the alcohol prior to extraction. Also though ants collect resins for certain building purposes as well, similar to bees @Bruce_leeroy
