A funny thing happened on the way to the settleing tank...

Ran a batch yesterday. Better oil than I've had in quite awhile. titrated @ about 2mg/ml of KOH. anyway after it seperated, the top 1/4 to 1/3 was clear bio, and the rest dark glycerol. Thought it rather backwards, so fired the pump up for 20 minutes and let it settle out again. It then seperated as normal. Anyone else ever have that happen?

Very odd. Did you see this via a sight tube?

yes, will see today how the batch turns out but looks normal now. Distilled about 1.5 gallons of Methanol out of the Bio yesterday.
