I did my first recovery of methanol yesterday . Got 5 gal. back from 25 gal. When it first started coming out it was black as it collected in my bucket but then cleared up after a while. Is this normal?

Mine comes out clear to a slight yellow tint.
If that was your first distillation, maybe the piping was being cleaned at the same time?

I dont think so. It shouldnt come out dirty, unless your plumbing is dirty, which will be self cleaning when you are distilling methanol.
