      Hi guys and gals, whilst i personally hav'nt used this process myself, i
      would imagine it would speed the process of fermentation up a bit, as to a
      difference in quality, im not sure.

      A while back, UPS wrote about INVERTING sugar, to make it easier for the
      yeast to convert it. I saved his comments at
      http://www.geocities.com/kiwi_distiller/sugar.htm#invert . I've also
      heard about doing this simply by simmering the sugar & water for 5 minutes.

      Does anyone do this ?

      Does it make a difference, in terms of either speed of fermentation, or
      taste of the resulting distillate ?

      Tony
