Which type of still produces the most alcohol? Reflux or Pot Stills?

All stills collect alcohol from your wash at varying strengths. The total amount of alcohol collected is dependent on how much is present in your wash. Reflux Stills collect less in volume but this is much higher in alcohol strength. Alcohol should always be watered down to below 50%/V before filtering. After filtering, and watering down, the total amount of finished alcohol should be the same no matter which still you have used. The exception to this rule is the new Super Reflux still which sacrifices 5% quantity for higher quality.
