Re: Ultrasonic Distillation
Is it possible for you to further elaborate on your experimentation
of using US for aging of alcohol?

you probably will have to go to a technical library and check out

involves dispersing the "clumps or clusters of alcohol" similar to
bunches of grapes. Ultrasound seems to "break up" these clumps to
individual molecules, thus "smoothing" the taste".

> Hi all, awhile back someone was talking about ultrasonic aging of
alcohol, but only found one info page on it, while searching I found
mention of ultrasonic distillation of solvants, My question is can
this princible be put into practice in our hobby or business as the
case may be. I don't know the
physics behind cold boiling, but would like to hear from anyone that
has experience in this field.
