Re: Bird Watchers Recipe Fail
- Is this the recipe?
3 cups tomato paste
Juice 3 lemons
Approx. 18 kg sugar
225 grams fresh regular bakers yeast.
water up to 80 litres.
I only mention this because you used the word "turbo" in your post and I think an assumption was made.
I do agree though that you should try EC-118 instead of bakers yeast.
That should give you a cleaner wash, also of course the cuts are important and the more practice you get, the better the results.
Did you use a carbon filter at all?
I double distill, using conservative cuts from a column, dilute back to 40%, run it through a clean activated carbon column, and get the smoothest, absolutely wonderful “shine” that anyone I have shared it with can remember. It tastes cleaner than anything I can buy at the store.
I redistill about 30+-% of each run in my next first run.
Hope this gives you some ideas to gain higher purity.
