      Put a parrot in line and put an alcohol measuring device and you can see where you alcohol levels drop at.  I use a reflux still also but run mine wide open, no reflux, so 
      I get the taste from my mash.  When i would reflux a batch to make vodka, gin, etc, i would reflux about 70/30, that gives you 90-95% alcohol.  I can't tell a taste difference at all when operating in reflux.  With it wide open, you can definitely tell the difference, hope this helps.....jim

      Hi I am new to the group and to distilling
      I built a reflux still and on my first try I could not destinguish when the heads were finished and the body commenced. Both smell and tongue tip taste remained the same throughout
      I could destinguish the tails because of the rise in temperature
      Please could anybody help???

      Best regards
      John Schaerer
