When I double distill I take the product from the first run and dilute it with water then yes you run the product all the way out. I still collect foreshots, heads, middle than tails.
is there a reason to double distill, better quality spirit?
Words can't describe how much better it is!
You will get a much better product and be able to determine cuts much easier also improving on your already better product.
Every body says to put the heads and tails back in for the final distillation, if we keep doing this time after time it looks like we will have a lot of the junk we are trying to eliminate,
Please add input.
Depends/ For rums, yes the way down tails. For whiskeys, perhaps if you are an excellent taster.

They can also be used to flavor future grain distillations, but the cuts must be maintained proporly. This is what make our product better than store bought.
As Im starting to make Rum,Should I be saving Heads and Tails for next run or will it lessen the quality
