express ageing

Postby brisvalleymoonshiner » Fri Jul 20, 2018 7:11 am

Anyone heard/done the method of using a fridge/freezer to mimic the winter season and leaving it in the sun to mimic summer. Does this actually speed up the ageing process.

i know you can't beat good ol' time, was curious to hear if anyone had used this process and what their result was. I have read some articles on using a microwave which is an interesting method.

I'm sure there's a couple of threads around here somewhere on accelerated ageing. I think The Doctor has given some great info on this too.

Do a search for "ultrasonic" or "sous-vide" and you'll get some interesting threads like this one http://aussiedistiller.com.au/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=10406
