      LN,

      I can suggest two books that will help you. They are:

      Making Fine Spirits by our own Zymurgy Bob and Distilling Fruit Brandy by Josef Pischl. Both books are loaded with information. The former gives much more detail on actual distilling than does the latter.

      Enjoy,

      Tom

Any suggestions? I'm happy to buy a book if you think there's a good one. I have never distilled before...total newbie on this front.

        Thanks Tom,

        I just bought Making Fine Spirits and eagerly await its arrival.  I had bought Distilling Fruit Brandy back in January but returned it.  As you mentioned, there wasn't much actual distilling detail, so it wasn't the right book for me.  I think Bob's book will be the one to get me started.

          Hubert germain-robin has recently released a book which provides some aspects of his distilling techniques he uses to make his world renowned brandy, but is more of a journal type memoir than an instructional manual or book.
