If your command of language is such as in this posting , well how are you going to understand or make anything, In fact you might damage yourself.

You will probably get a gallon off of it.Throw out the first 200ml
that comes off the still,you dont want it.As far a the heat goes,I
would heat it up somewhat slow,and when you start collecting,turn the
heat down,and use just enough to keep it going.Depending on where
your thermometer is located,It will start running someware between
170-190f.Dont worry about it too much,just get to know your still.
I usually stop collecting at 204f on my potstill.
