Re: Many Persimmon!!!

I used to run persimmon brandy every couple years or so. Those were just wild fruit trees growing in the mountains. Biggest thing I remember about is you dont use them until they hit the ground, then you had to gather them quick. Persimmon in the tree was too sour and would damn near give you lock ...

Re: Many Persimmon!!!

I have made persimmon wine & brandy. Time is its best friend with both drinks. Fermentation was slow and messy (over 100 pounds). Wasnt able to get a SG reading since the fruit is so stringy. Most of the barrel would not clear enough to be wine & had an odd taste to it. That is what I cooked. Ran t...

Re: Many Persimmon!!!

I know the fruit well, they are usually very sweet and soft when ripe. I have not distilled persimmons (except some with apples) but I think they have a good yield in alcohol, but the flavor I think is very light. i agree they have very light flavour. So, If some one can tell me which way to distil...

Re: My barrel ageing experiment

Ravi, I got a rough price to ship you a barrel and it would cost $70aud with a 10lt barrel costing $230 I would expect it to cost $300 for the barrel. That's $262907 KRW. That's double the cost of the China one so it's up to you if you want to try. I know I would struggle to justify paying double b...

Re: MUCH WATER AND LESS ALCOHOL

Only 4 to 5 liters of low wines from a 21 liter wash? You’re either leaving some of the goodness in the boiler, or dumping it down the drain. I would expect to collect at least 6 to 7 liters of low wines from 21 liters of wash, ie - roughly 1/3 of the wash...that is if you run deep enough into the ...

Pot still, VM still, CCVM, LM, LMVM combo, you already have a CM anyway. You can buy heads for that on ebay/amazon/aliexpress etc.

You can add Gin baskets, Sight glasses, Parrots, Bubble plates etc as well.
