Not sure what your asking.Most don't make any cuts on stripping runs .Cuts Are usually done on second run.Fore shots and early heads are removed as is bottom end of tails. tails.Fore shots are discarded and early heads and late tails are kept to add to next run or saved and reran with more of the same.Reason I use word early and late is some of each heads and tails are left in product to archive a taste thats pleasing to producer in grain and fruit pot stilled products.I mostly single run and I toss both fore shots and heads Ive cut and only save tails to add to my next run.When I double run I make cuts on both runs .dyerwolf wrote:After doing a beer stripping run, what is the purpose of adding heads and tails.
Is it to make the cuts for the spitit run easier?
Does it contribute to the flavor in the end?
It doesn't make sense either..given the heads generally have higher abv than tails do (as tails are closer to water as they go).
