Two more days of distilling have yielded another approximately 80 gallons of first run distillate. All sorts of other mile stones have been reached: we didn't blow up anything, no one was scalded, we didn't make much "corn bread" (burning the slop on the inside of the stills), and the crew members still are on speaking terms. As with all complex processes, we keep learning lessons as we go along: from the best way to build the fires, to regulating the water flow, to gauging when to cut off the run, and the like. Stay tuned, beginning tomorrow Dave P. will post his journal on Pot Distilling 101.
