I have slowly begun distillations, late as usual.
30 litre vat with grapes
20220703 Yield just around 30%, maybe 1000ml. I guess my grapes do not have very high sugar content.
Vat C5, Berner Rose
20220709 It splattered a lot, clogging up the steam pipe, twice. I really need that splatter guard. Yield about 1000ml at 64%. Pleasant nose.
Vat C4, Belle de Boskoop
20220712 Have started distilling ~30litres - very little methylalcohol. Yield 1000ml, plus 1000ml 20% for the collection.
20220713 2nd portion, ~30litres - very little methylalcohol. Yield 600ml, plus 1000ml 20% for the collection.
Vat C1, trester, Belle de Boskoop
Vat C9, Belle de Boskoop
Vat B1, Belle de Boskoop
I finished this one before we went on vacation, the one noteworthy thing is that my vapour pipe got clogged up a few times, by splatter. Very annoying, although easy to clean later. I have some plans for a splash guard.
Vat B2, Belle de Boskoop
2022/08/10 Finished today. Have produced some high percentages, 80-90% ethanol. I kept the Bartscher at 4, which seems to have meant less of that sticky leakage from the pot, and no splattering either.
