Re: aging with electricity!

Thank's for the link Red Lion. No problem. It seems to be the electric field that does the job since the wine apparently is not in direct contact with the electrodes. I don't understand the titanium bit. Of course the ultimate question for us- if it works - is will it ever be available for our use?...

Re:

No chips. Chips are the enemy. Nuggets, beans, sticks, planks, staves etc are what you are looking for. Any oak that is at least 3/8" thick and toasted with fire or infared with a gradient to the toasting color. No convection toasting!!! Has there been any scientific research done on this subject? ...

Re: aging with electricity!

Well, I am a scientist/chemist...though I won't claim to be a wine expert. When you deal with electricity in chemisty (which is a lot...) you generally speak of "redox" reactions--"reduction/oxidation". So, basically, electricity equal oxidation (leave me alone...it's a gross simplification...I kno...

Re: aging with electricity!

I am not a scientist, chemist, wine expert, etc. I move dirt from point A to point B for a living. ... Well, to be honest: I'm no scientist/chemist/wine expert either, but I'm working hard on all three of those! 8) That being said: it doesn't matter that the electricity-experiment was conducted on ...

Re: aging with electricity!

well i have a few neon sign transformers maybe i'll give it a go :P 600 volt per cm? i can manage that easy.. not sure about the titanium electrodes though.. When reading the original article you can see the setup they used on page 2. I believe it is essential to use 600V/cm @ 3000Hz. I think that ...
