Re: Basic questions - How much alcool to get from 3 Litters of Red Wine (13°) ...
- I've tried and here are my results :
1. Near 50 cls of alcohol
2. I've respected that
3. I've made it on the pot still but with very little fire made by propane so it takes 2 hours and at the end the drops were very slow but with no fused oil. So I've stopped there.
4. I think all the alcohol was gone
The result is an alcohol strong but with a taste a little bit hard. I'm not already blind so I think it is done correctly :)
The next step is to try sugar wash.
