Putting older posts here. Going to try to keep the novice forum pruned about 90 days work. The 'good' old stuff is going to be put into appropriate forums.

As I'm working a run and being new at this I don't have a bunch of glass jars. My question is can I collect in a small jar the heads and foreshots and then transfer the good stuff from a small jars to a stainless pot or dutch oven. Then go back to the small jar for the tails. This would allow more surface for the shine to breath.

I don't see any problem in that, although, I've never run out of bottles before. I just tell one of my college kids to bring up a dozen or so fifths after a football game when he comes to visit! :D

Seriously, on home games, OSU runs through a lot of cheap liquor. :shock:

Sounds ok to me. I just collect in gallon wine jugs and mason jars.

I've got a dozen 700 ml Jim Beam bottles from when my lush used to have to buy her bourbon. Just texta'd #'s on the lids.
Works a treat, i collect in 500 ml beakers, then tip em into the numbered JB bottles. Smaller quantities when i'm close to a cut. Got to the stage of learning my still now that i can see and taste the cut coming up, so some bottles might only have 100 ml or so.
Middle Hearts go into either 2l flagons or 4l jugs. :wink:
