I've worked out a nice AG and have been able to get it to distill down to 1.000 from 1.055, I usually charge 5 gallons in the pot and a gallon total of my previous strip diluted to 35% in the doubler. It usually starts around 80% and drops about 4% per 8oz collected. I usually do 5 stripping runs of 5 gallons and end up with 2 1/2 gallons then do a slow spirit run.
I'd love some advice on where to cut my tails. I def can detect the smell of the tails but I'm unsure how much to keep. I've read where doing "deep" into the tails gives more flavor so maybe this is subjective depending on one's taste.
