You'd think that the heavier elements in the mash would occupy the lower levels of the melding vat, and in the same way the heavier atoms within the moderate to late aging whiskey would do the same. If there is no gravity then there would be a different atomic interaction unaffected by the weight of the constituents.

Although the practice seems absurd, it would, on second thought, seem fruitful.
