RE: [new_distillers] Re: Vodka
- I found that my run was very estery. What I thought I could put in ended up having to go to feints as it had too much of a snap to it, not smooth at all. Basically it was extra 20% of the ethanol that I had to add to the existing tails. Which was already about 15% of the run.I cut it down and compared it to some of the higher end brands like Belvedere. It was quite sweet in comparison. So I am going to filter the hell out of it and see what it tastes like after that.

I stop at 79.5, my range is 78.3 to 79.5 and get most of everything available, whatever is left, usually 500-1000 ml I pull off for later distillation.
I usually get between 8-10 quarts from a run of 15 gallons.
