    ... Thanks, so the % change in the water temperature ( about 1% in my case) applies to distilling temps also? Mike In new_distillers@yahoogroups.com,

      Correct Mike, But 1% is just a drop or 2 in the bucket (or collection jar :):):). Once your on your way, you will find the senses that God gave you will take

        Correct Mike,

        But 1% is just a drop or 2 in the bucket (or collection jar :):):).  Once your on your way,  you will find the senses that God gave you will take over, and make your themometer a secondary implement - even along with your Hydrometers..... ;)

        Vino es Veritas,

        Jim.

          --- Groovy. Thanks Jim.
          I'm sure I'll have more questions soon. I live in the Finger Lakes
          region of New York where I have an almost (albet seasonal)unlimited
          supply of pumice. Grappa looks like fun. Carpe distillum
