On this subject as on many others, distillers differ very much, some requiring rye to be ground very coarse, others very fine, while others go so far as to say it should only be ground upon country stones and very slowly --As to this I cannot judge; it is true, that rye is sometimes so ground as to render it dead or inert and difficult to ferment, but this rarely happens with a tolerably good miller.
