      Hi Maxime,
      I suggest you use our library. There are two excellent books in
      there.
      "The Home Winemakers Manual"
      by Lum Eisenman
      and
      "Artisan Distilling"
      by Kris Arvid Berglund, Ph.D.
      Page 13 deals with fruit pulp (marc) as a feedstock.

      Slainte!
      regards Harry
