The particular situation this is designed to deal with is an “oh crap” moment. Running the stills without the condensers being cooled will result in a pressure build up in the stills, not a good thing. The objective is to shut down the distilling process until the condenser pump is fixed. A by-product of shutting off the steam to the beer still is that all the mash in the still “drops” and we have to start the process over from the beginning.
I’m working on modeling the implementation now. Once I’ve tested and validated the approach, I’ll update my production configuration.
