      I 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.

      Nope Royce,

      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.
