  1. Hey all, I've been running a 150 gal pot still, soon upgrading to a 300gal. Whenever I have down time I find myself on here trying to further educate myself. When putting a product into a barrel, I'm reading that a bit of heads and or tails helps with the chemistry or the full flavor of a barreled spirit. I fill mainly 53's thus many years of maturation. It takes me 3x 300gal ferments to fill +/- a 53gal barrel. I do my cuts in 5 gal Korny Kegs. I then make my hearts cut, filter and cut to X proof (right now rye at 113p) and fill the barrel. My hearts cut is clean and if heads or tails are present I usually don't add em. Clear it taste fantastic. In your opinion how much heads/tails would you include in your cut? Is this adding to the mouthfeel, more flavor depth or what? If there are any links or books I could further educate myself with please include them. Thanks everyone, y'all rock!
  2. I'm using a new still configuration for this rum recipe. Its a 4" column with 2 bubble plates. 3000 watt heater. This was a low wines run. I stop collecting hearts when the distillate was around 74% (and when I start noticing a tangy, almost sour note). I stop collecting tails around 10%. I collected 2 gallons of hearts and 3 gallons of tails. This seems way off on the ratios. Any ideas? Should I add another plate to improve separation, or increase the height of my column?

  4. We have a simple suggestion for utilizing your heads and tails from your whiskey or other spirit runs. These can be re-distilled in our automated GENIO still, which will give you above 190 proof neutral spirit for subsequent use for vodkas or gins. Our stills come with an activated carbon filter and you can select to automatically pass your re-distilled spirit through the filter to remove further smell and flavor from it. Our GENIO Still 250 (66 gallons) is only about USD $10.1K and shipping to anywhere in the US or Canada is $1.3K, so for about $11.4K you can have a standalone plug and play automated distillation system that can produce on average 10L of above 190 proof neutral spirit per hour. With average electrical power use of 10kW per hour, it will be about 1kWh of electricity cost per liter of 190 proof of spirit. In the US, average kWh costs $0.12, so for $0.45 you can have a gallon of 190 proof neutral spirit, which is likely significantly less than purchased NGS from industrial sources and it would also be made from your ingredients, therefore still "Artisan" and not pretend "Artisan" like NGS is generally considered. Since you already have heads and tails, you might as well use them for something useful as opposed to disposing of it (in a safe manner of course). Our stills have a small footprint, are efficient, affordable and also automated using touchscreen controls therefore other than pouring your heads and tails into the pot and diluting it to less than 60 proof, you don't need to watch over it to ensure it hits 190 proof. Great addition to any existing copper whiskey still or a great standalone workhorse for any distillery. You can also make whiskey, gin, rum and any other spirit you want with it, but its competitive advantage is the automated feature in reaching 190 proof. It comes with a GIN basket, which will also save you time from cleaning your other still's column from juniper oils if you want to have this as your standalone Neutral spirit still and Gin still. For additional information, feel free to visit our website or email our US representative at usa@g-still.com or Canada at ca@g-still.com Cheers, Team GENIO
