FINAL PRODUCT RATIO

Postby Return starter » Wed Jun 30, 2021 2:26 pm

I am using a 10l Air Still and from 10l of TPW I retrieve about 6l of first strip liquid. From this, after approximately 300ml of first cuts, I retrieve about 1l of 40%ABV. This seems a bit low. Is this what others are experiencing or am I taking too much in first cuts

Just do your cuts from the Spirit run mate. Strip runs are just to get as much low wines as you can.

Not sure if the 10L airstill enables differenciation between spirit and strip runs. From my experiments with the 4 litre variant doing stripping runs and then a full charge at 40% gave a much nicer and easier to cut product than a single run

As for yeild so much depends on the abv of what you put in to start with.

Hope that helps.
