We're starting a new distilling operation, should I add the entire wash to the still or separate the grain?

It really will depend on your budget because the mashing equipment will be less expensive. You will also need to consider what you are doing with the spent grains and if it is easier to dispose of the dry grain or if you can dispose of the hot mash easily.

Seperate the wash from rhe mash, because for one your boiler is goen to burp and when it burps it will throw your grain up in your column, you hear all the horror stories of stills blowing up well thats why they put mash and all in there boiler and everytime it burped the mash was thrown up and clogging up the column and once the column clogged up it sealed of the system and made back pressure build up in the boiler and then she went off like a bomb

There are many factors here. Can the distiller handle grains? For example, can you wash the grains out easy. Normally, the process is easier if you are only putting the fermented product into the distiller. Second, some products will have different flavors if you distill off the grains.
