- Aug 13 5:18 AMI did the spirit run yesterday. Ended up with 2 quarts of 70% ABV. Some nose in it and I have put in on wood chips for a while. I guess the next step is to cut it to drinking %. I think most brandy is about 40%.

I will. I assume (you know what that means) that you run the spirit run as before, down to a low ABV and make the cuts in smaller batches. I am very interested in how you worked the coffee maker. I happen to have one on the shelf that doesn't work properly for making coffee, but I might can make it work without much trouble. It is a 100 cup perculator type.

If you already got rid of the foreshots then no need to again. Since
your still seems to have so much internal reflux in it, I might want to
dilute it more down to 20% or so and try that.
Otherwise sounds good.
