What measures can I take to guard against cloudy spirit?

The best method is to add some "distilling conditioner" to your wash in the still boiler before starting. This stops the excessive foaming in the boiler which is caused by high concentrations of proteins and unfermented sugars. Distilling conditioner allows distillation even if your wash has not fully fermented out.
