Found these 1.25ml glass jugs at Kmart, $3 each.... they are working nicely for collecting my hearts.

I reckon 1.25 litres would be way too big for cuts jars.

I use the 400g moccona jars which are 1.250 to the glass line at the top. It really depends on your still type, boiler size and charge percentage, 40l of 40% pumps out about 20l or so of cuts on a spirit run for my pot still, so I use one big jar for first heads, one or two in the middle and sometimes one or more at the end of tails, this is of course after im up to speed with the how the particular wash generally cuts after many runs.

Different story with a plater thats going to put out a total of 4ish litres from a 40l 10% wash

The trick to cut jars is to get them close to the same height regardless of capacity, the moccona jars are within an inch or so of the tall pasta sauce jars i use, so not ideal, but not terrible in that respect either

Yeah. I didn't look at it closely enough. I was after something graduated.
