Rapid Aging (was) Re: Feints
- Thanks Harry,
Somehow I have a gut feeling that the magnetic field setup I posted
would be easier to implement than an ultrasonic system. At least it
should be easier to build and have less potential for hazards as I
understand it. Anyway, too early to say anything definite. Time to
start planning some experiments I guess :) Making neutral alcohol
automatically is now sorted to the end so it's time to get back to
the whiskey ...

- Uncle Jess says 8-15 times the feints can be recycled. I am up to twelve on mine right now with no off taste at all. Will continue to do this until the taste is effected!......Jim

I'm curious about the use of feints. It makes sense to toss the foreshots, and to save the heads and tails combining them to make the feints. It also makes sense to recycle the feints in the still to recover more of the alcohol and possible flavoring agents. What is less clear to me is does a distiller continue adding to the feints collection or is there a point when you discard the feints and start over?
