Re: [In Progress] Maceration: The Amaro, Bitters and Vermouth Thread

I was a bit suspicious of that too.. I had another look at the recipe and it states "21/2 Liter" (Unscaled qty). It seems obvious now that probably means either 21-22 or 21.5L so I'll have a bit of a recalculate. I guess I had one two many Amaro sours when I was translating it from Italian :ebiggrin:

Re: New Kiwi

Welcome to the forum. You very possibly have access to ingredients that we can never hope to obtain in NZ, so I hope you are able to make use of them. Cheers Chris That's interesting, what kind of stuff is hard to get hold of back there? I'm kicking myself for not starting this hobby when I still c...

Re: Exploding absinthe..

Thanks for the advice!
I've used the brand's wine spirit before for a few non distilled liqueurs and it seems quite good, I'll have a more in depth tasting when the next lot arrives.
