Re: First Whiskey Attempt
- Hi Bill,
I used to run copper scrubbies in my towered pot still without
removing flavor, but it takes a couple of runs to get the cuts right.
Personally, I start collecting the middle run just below 90, down to
about 75, but that's just me. That and it takes about six months of
aging before you know you got it right! Everyone has there own taste,
and you're building this stuff for you. If your friends don't like
it, tell the cheap bums to buy there own!!
And Jameson is right, it's getting tougher to find all copper
scrubbies. When I was buying them (I use structured packing now when
I do a vodka run), I used to bring a small magnet with me. If they
stuck to the magnet, then they weren't "All Copper" (the bastards).
Tip (hik) one, Morgan
