    Plus, if we are talking about BT's experimental still, it is a hybrid pot still and thus would have heads and tails.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    True, but Chuck was right to correct me because I was mistakenly referring to the usual mass produced bourbons made in a column still. I didn't think about my question before I asked it...

    There are no heads and tails as such in a second distillation. There is a residue somewhat like tales left in the bottom of the doubler, but heads would be impossible since the methanol and other heads cogeners were removed in the first distillation. They can't magically reappear.

    I noticed that this has yet to occur, so I decided to take the liberty of bumping this thread. I hope that's OK.

    A-OK, the threads get locked after a year of no posts, March 11, 2010 was the last post prior to yours.
    I was just waiting till then.
    If any newbies see this go back and check out Chuck's original post.

    No! At least not for me as I somehow missed this all before. Just wonderful knowledge again being imparted here and as often on SB, miss a little, miss a lot. Oh how I hate to wait!

    A great way to discover interesting old threads is to go to Quick Links -> Who's Online and look at what the guest viewers are reading. I've found a lot of informative discussions that way. It's also mildly amusing to speculate about the Google search string that brought them here.
