Question eliminating water after final wash

I was experimenting with my first Dr Pepper experiment and I became impatient when I had to wait for the water to dissapate out of my final wash. After two days of watching it start to turn clear I decided to heat it to drive off the water. At 35 deg C, it completly came clear in just a few miniutes, is this ok to do or do I risk igniting the fuel?

Just be carefull what you are using for a heat scource.
I heat sometimes if my wash jets get pluged and spray a stream into the fuel it speeds up the seperation process a lot. prior to that it has taken 5-6 days for the water to seperate.
I have a fuel mister unit, use a tank type heater thermostatically controled to shut down about 100 deg F.
I am just hoping it warms up so i can start brewing again shop not heated so I am in my winter shutdown and I have used the last of what i brewed B-4 it got cold..................
