That topic is specifically forbidden here.

Even if it wasn't, nobody would explain these things to you here, for various reasons ranging from self-protection to protection of commercial interests, to "I worked hard to learn this, why should I tell it to you for nothing?"

I'm pretty sure there is no website that addresses those issues specifically with regard to absinthe, nor is there any modern reference, either.

This may be bordering on taboo subject matter, but here goes....

SWIM is doing some historical research and was wondering where the proper "cuts" were made in the formulation of real absinthe using the Arnold recipe or the Dick’s Encyclopedia process. Foreshots, heads, middles, tails, faints, etc. Does one go by qualitative methods alone (color, viscosity, opacity), or are there specific temperature (ranges) involved.

No need to start a big discussion, a few hints will do. If nobody wants to answer, I understand. Maybe just point me in the diredtion of a good reference or website??

Thanks,
