    @mike Question i see recipes where you run your still fast then redo it again
    so do u just cut the flame off open it up pour the liquor you made back into the wash left in the still? does this give you more liquor or higher proof? i am using a 5 gallon copper still..

    • NO, you empty your wash from your still. Then cut your product to 50% with water. Then redistill. I hope this helps you

    • there are a few factors ABV for one and the size of your still heads another.

    Question charcoal filtering what s it what is it for and how do I use it

    • Question charcoal filtering what s it what is it for and how do I use it

    • I only carbon filter neutral spirits like sugar washes to remove unwanted smells and flavors not grain based spirits you want the flavor in.

    • try this Kenny.

      Stonewalls Honey Shine
      One quart of honey per 1 1/2 gallons of water. One 4 oz Package of Turbo yeast per 10 gallons of mash. Ferments for 7 to 14 days and then distill.
