- Tony! I think I found the answer to my own question. Fox-Fire book says
to put about 10 gal. of mash into the thump when starting a run. This is
using a 50gal. still and a 50 gal. thump. So that would be very close to
what Deb runs in her still given the size difference. So in a 5gal.
still I assume 1 or 2gal. put in the thump would be plenty. Thanks
anyway be careful !!!!!
