      To Tom Johnson,

      Tom, distilling 'flavored' alcohol like grappa, schnapps, obstler,
      eau-de-vie etc... requires a different approach than distilling 'clean'
      spirit.
      If you can read german, then try http://www.schnaps.co.at/ ; the guy who
      runs the site is an expert and has written a great book on distilling
      schnapps.
      One of the most important differences is, that the quality and taste of the
      wash is essential for a good distillate because the flavours are carried
      over in the process; clean spirit can be distilled from any mixture
      containing ethanol. The crux of the matter is to make the right separation
      into foreshots, middlecut and feints (as in distilling whisky). Personally I
      find this type of distilling more interesting than pure ethanol-production,
      because it results in more authentic, recognizable products.

      Regards,

      Rob
