- Apr 14, 2014Hi there
In South Africa craft beer has taken off with a storm, so there are often a batch or two that is just not drinkable. Between ourselves and friends we ended up with 3 such batches and instead of throwing it down the drain, we distilled it. The first batch was an American Pale Ale with a sweet tasting end result - doesn't seem to be too high in alcohol content, the Blonde ale is a lot less sweet and the IPA has an oily taste (from the hops) and seems to be extremely strong.
My questions are:
1) Is there a different way of distilling beer?
2) How do I calculate the amount of alcohol in the end result? The beer all had an alcohol level of 4.5 % Blonde, 6% APA and 8% IPA.
3) Should we distill it again to get rid of the oily taste?
It can be done. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLY8E7iSZYc
Any suggestions or help will be appreciated since we can often have a batch of beer to distill!!
