Re: Freezing before distilling
- Hi all,
Just for fun I put 2l of sugar wine (14%)into the freezer and let it
freeze for three days. I just opened and poured out what was not
frozen. I was left with just under 1l. of liquid
Is that about right? (reduce by over 50%)? or do I need to let it
thaw and drip some more?
P.S. I tried out my new alcometer and it just floated on top of the
cold liquid so I figured it was too cold for any reading so I let it
sit. At 20 C. it STILL floated on top! (Reading is below 0%)I tasted
the stuff and would estimate over 25% by the taste. Do I have a bunch
of leftover sugar? It doesn't taste that sweet but I'm a newbee.
If it does have a lot of sugar left over wrecking my reading is this
going to cause any other problems? (yukky burnt sugar in my boiler?)
