Re: Aging unoaked brandy
As a commercial winemaker I had to learn patience. everything comes around in it's own time. It is a hard lesson to balance time and cash flow while starting out. What I tend to see here and in the industry is that everything is based on how quick you can get a product completed. Quantity over quality....
It appears to me that the people who have been making wine or distilling for a long time have learned this lesson. A good fermentation takes time.. Proper aging takes time.. Drinking can be quick but savoring takes time.
PS... I am still chuckling over your soapbox comment. Very appropriate though. It could be a very interesting challenge.
