Long time since I’ve been on the forum Re. adding heads and tails back to the wash. Didn’t Harry write about this a couple of years ago? Although you think you have a high concentrate of let’s say nasties you also have a higher percentage of drinkable ethanol alcohol, still mixed in with the heads and tails. Yet if you were to taste the heads and tails, all your taste buds would taste is the nasty stuff.
If you do your cuts properly i.e. at the right temperatures you will never get the nasties, only the pure ‘hearts’. Now in order to get the aromas and flavours, and inadvertent headaches we want, we need to add some of the heads and tails back hence the best tasting cuts you make
