      we have found Tig Welding to be the most reliable.

        Hello Mark and welcome to the new list.
        Pot stills are very common and in some commercial operations are better
        than reflux stills. Although they will 'take over' a lot more of the
        flavour etc from a wash than the reflux type, you are still dealing with
        natural flavours. Because you have extracted your schnapps from the wash,
        a certain amount of the flavour will have been left behind.
        The stronger tasting liqueurs use the alcohol after it has been distilled
        and then has fruit, herbs etc soaked to extract the flavour.
        If you wish to increase the flavour of your schnapps adding a small amount
        of strawberry essence will help.
        Another thought, did you carbon treat your schnapps? That will have a
        baring on the finished product.
        Interested to hear of your progress as it happens.
