kimbo Oxidised cider for calvados....stripped then essential oils extracted. Or for straight vidka/ gin its run in reflux mode on sugar wash, up to 96.8 pure! With botanicals in a gin basket over the reflux condencer. Then cut with cornish well water... +1

Ernie440 Nice!! Useful science for a change!! :D 96.8% haha!!! So for your gin ... juniper berries, dried lemon and orange peel maybe?? What else might you add? That is a monster machine at 8 ft! oh my. +0

kimbo juniper
black peppercorns

the height means i can really get the reflux going which, the numbers tell me should take me way above where i could go with it in pot still mode. but with the gin basket in the primary run should mean only one run to do!

Ernie440 Sounds like a sweet set up to me. Peppercorns I haven't used and coriander I can never find even though my garden is full of cilantro every year. Ridiculous.
I tried just a couple star anise (just for kicks recently and it was nauseating .. not doing that again. over powering. Thanks for sharing!

kimbo See this is what happens when i get too much time on my hands!;) +2
I was wondering what that was, and yup, my first guess would have been correct!:)+0

Dick does look as if you picked up some bread making skills whilst in germany ;)
I thought englishmen cut the "crust" off of toast, yours looks different :)

kimbo Ive made sourdough bread for years. If the yeasts are from your area, chances are you'll be imune to any ill effects of yeasts by virtue of the fact that youve been breathing them for years.

Btw...think you're on the wrong pic.
