      Here are a few questions that I have in mind since a while.  I would be glad if you
      answer them.

      If I use a Reflux Still to distill rum or whisky mash will I get enough flavor?  Or I need
      to send less cold water into the packing of the column to get less purity and more
      flavor?

      If we don't send any water in the packing of the column of a reflux still, will it become
      the same thing as a pot Still or there is a difference?

      Another thing, does the mash (of whiskey or rum or anything else) needs to be filter
      before being boil in the pot.  I mean do I left the malt grains into the wash when I boil
      it to distill it?  (If making brandy, can i left the crushed grapes)

      For making rum, am I better to use brown sugar only instead of molasses if the only
      kind avaible to me is sorgham?

      Will tap water give good results if use for the mash and to dilute the distillate?

      By the way, I'm planning to construct a reflux still, (I live in Canada , Quebec) I don't
      know if someone here is from around there, because I would like to know if it is
      possible to buy one from a local dealer even if it is not legal to distill alcohol maybe I
      told myself their selling some pretending it's for water distillation only...

      I hope you'll be able to answer my questions and you'll understand what I mean (I
      don't speak english perfectly)

                                       Thank you
