      Every potstill is different. Some only manage 30% first run, some
      go as high as 65%, depending on design, power input etc.
      The 'average potstill' (is there such a thing?) does a first run of
      ~50% abv. Some dilute this with water to 30 or 40% for the second
      run, some don't. Some only do 1 careful run (grappa etc).
      So your assumptions are generally correct.

      Slainte!
