"The secret to distill a great grappa is simple. You just need fresh pommace and one hundred years of experience" :lol: Said in the most nonchalant voice, but I love it!!

One thing I don't get is if they're heating the pomace directly with steam, don't they get a lot of water mixed with the low wines. Unless I missed something those pressurized boilers used steam injection.

They are both heating with steam and injecting steam. You did miss something because the video did not go into detail about discontinuous distillation. After the vapor leave the pot the pass through a rectification tower that remove everything but the ETOH. The methanol and low wines are saved for blending. After its use in grappa making, the technology was later used in the the prodution of super premimum vodkas and netural spirits where the spirit goes through multiple rectification towers, each removing a specific impurity. Hope this answers your question.
