      If you use a reflux tower ( compound still ) you will only collect ethanol- clear, colorless.
      If you de-flux your still, i.e., remove the packing, then you have converted your still to a simple pot still. THEN you will have brandy ( of what ever fruit ) . True "brandy" is from grapes only, any other brandy title is to be accompanied with the friut from which it was derived. Example: Blackberry Brandy.

      i was under the impression that if you ferment fruits that it was
      considered brandy , and say if it was corn or other plant matter it
      was likker. is this correct? i fermented 25 gal of peaches and run
      thru a pot still twice. it was my first time it turn out rite good.
      was that considered peach brandy? my brother claims that it doesn't
      matter what i ferment that it is going to come out the same. is this
      correct? or will i get the flavors from what ever i ferment.
