Good ferment but what a mess!

It fermented well giving a final g of 1.004, but you simply cannot remove the liquid from the mash mess caused by the corn flour. Ended up tossing 2/3rs of the mash. Did get about a 1 L bottle of grain alcohol after distilation with a reflux still, but the tased very strong of corn flour. (like eating corn tortillas). I will not be repeating!
