I am perplexed by the a piece of early distillation technology called running it on the log. Am I correct in that steam was piped into a hollow log while mash was poured down from the top creating the first distillation which then went on to a pot still doubler? If so wouldn't this actually be the first continuous collum beer still? When was this technology first employed? Who was the genious that dreamed it up?
