      Hi the reason to dilute the run, is when diluted it leaves more in
      boiler from second run. If you do not dilute you concentrate the
      fusels and do not get much better separation on the second run. It
      needs more liquid to spread the fusels over to get better separation
      on subsequent runs. As 5% of your product is a mixture of what is in
      the boiler it is much better to have a lower concentration of low wines.
      I hope this makes sense.

      Happy drinking
