      could someone tell me how to make a 2nd run?
      do you take the alcohol you collected from your first run and add it back to the tails and rerun it?
      just starting really need some help

      You can do this several ways:
      I prefer to do a few stripping runs (run the still hot and fast, don’t make cuts and collect everything down to 10-20%)
      Save enough stripping runs to fill your still (I usually do 4 stripping runs to fill my 10 gallon still)
      Once you have enough low wines (everything collected from the stripping runs) add them to the still and do a spirit run.

      You can also just add your heads,tails to the next batch and re-run them that way. You will get a better product by doing stripping runs then a spirit run.

      Hope that helps,

      could you tell me how much wash i would need to do this for my 15 gallon still?
      when i do a stripping run how hot do i let the still get? thanks

      Just do stripping runs until you have 15 gallons of low wines.

      I usually go by output as apposed to temp- I like to see a stream of spirit coming out of the still.
