The flavor is MUCH better than what I've been doing. I can't wait to
see what happens after two or three more runs.

somewhere closer to the results you're after. I'm also pleased that
an independent has verified what I've been trying to get across in
messages etc...that diluting the second run works, and does so
particularly well when using still dregs (backset) full of the
previous run's flavinoids, as the diluent.
That's a good job on the potstill & parrot's beak, even if you think
it's not your best work. Believe me, I've seen much worse. :-)
