This is what I thought was my first post here:
I've yet to build one but am some trying to do some planning so I'll
end up with what I want.
My main purpose for building one would be to make Brandy though I
know it is usually seperated in a pot still what I'd like to do is
use the external reflux still at 100% reflux to collect the head then
go to zero reflux to collect the brandy then switch to a higher
reflux ratio to concentrate the tail for the next batch.
Would this be a good way to make brandy or would it remove to much
flavor. At zero reflux it's basically a pot still isn't it? But I
still am not sure if the packing would remove to much flavor.
I'm asking because I'd like to make other things besides brandy.
