  1. So the simple answer to my question, " is there an industry "standard rule on thumb on head cut percent's is, NO, too many variables. I thought as much but was hoping there was. Thanks for your input.
  2. Thanks for your reply. I have been distilling for quite awhile and realize there are a lot of variables. I was just wondering for forecasting, if I could use an accepted industry standard, a percent loss of the gross batch run.. I wanted to backup my cost projections with a generally accepted loss of heads. for a grain bill that I have not done. I'll just use my past experience. I was hoping to give 3rd party validly to my numbers. Thanks again Bob
  3. Do most large distillers cut a predetermined percent of their run for their head control. Dose the grain bill radically change the head percent of the run? Is there a general rule of thumb that the industry accepts for percent of Heads of the total run? I am not talking about the art or style. JUST a generally accepted percent or do they mostly use temperature control to determine the cut.
  4. What a great informative thread. It validated some of the procedures that I have been doing and got me thinking about changes I could try to improve my skills.
  5. Hi Tim & Kris I am new to this site. I live in Tucson. I have been distilling for a while. I am setting up a distillery in Obregon, Son., Mexico.

  6. I had the same problem. I gave a buddy one of my old reflux stills that I could get 160 proof easily. All he could get was 70 proof. he had a propane burner that was putting out too much heat at the lowest setting and the temp shot past the sweet spot and was picking up water.. We put in a smaller burner that could hold the temp 170 -190 F AND WE GOT it making 170 p
