Hey guys, I have not heard of anybody doing this? if nobody is doing it, it must be a bad idea.
I want to know why it's a bad idea?
Let's say we started with a 100% Malt All Grain Whiskey recipe
Doing the normal Mashing and Fermenting.
Then distill away and make normal collections, once down into tails and ready to shutdown, Turn off boiler, and let cool down some.
ONCE COOL, Open the boiler, then "recharge" the Back-set that's left by adding some neutral spirits, from a sugar wash previously distilled out at 95% ABV that is as clean as possible.
Then close it back up and power back up and distill this new mix, utilizing the flavors that were already in the still?
Effectively have i doubled the amount of "quality" product? what will the second run be like?
Has anybody here tried this? did it work?
