    Correction: Malted rice is not used - should be malted rye! For those who like their vodka blue use blue corn flowers not violets. The use of a reflux tower

      The use of a reflux tower appears to be unknown in Russia. Tony
      Ackland's site should be translated into Russian! The only major
      technical advance on a simple pot still is a schematic design for a
      pot still which uses steam to heat the mash, (which is usually thick)
      and 2 slobber boxes in line, one above the other. This is apparently
      to collect fusel oils.

      Some ingredients in the recipes are bizarre - possibly due to sugar
      shortages or desperation - Jam, Apple juice, Confectionery, Halva,
      Any Syrup, Sugar with beer and tomato paste, Sugar with peas and
      milk, Sugar with potatoes, milk and bread, Sugar with milk.
