Pieces stuck in distilling Reply to this Post

What's the best thing to do when a black or brown piece is stuck in between two spice pieces in distilling? Should I ignore it or split the whites into two groups?

Groups of whites are what you want to go for. While I'm in need of more practicing, my advice would be to ignore spices and move the whites to the left side as well as you can. There's a simulator on DaChimpy for distilling, although it doesn't have spices to practice with. At least you'll be able to practice without worrying about the timer.

ETA: once you have several columns of whites, you can start working whites from the left side to the right to increase your Crystal Clear chain as much as possible. (Yes, I'm aware my own Distilling stats suck, but I've been playing YPP for almost 6.5 years. More than enough time to learn the ropes for practically everything. :P)

Burn it while still getting the longest CC chain you still can (better to get CC9+CC3 or CC3+CC9 than CC6+CC6).

Then drown your sorrows in the lousy rum you just made.

That works, too, from tutorials I've seen. Lol.
