A distiller is someone who separates desirable from undesirable elements in a beverage, such as rum or vodka. This process requires a process known as distillation. In the process, the alcohol and its volatile compounds, known as "heads," are separated from the desirable flavor compounds, or "tails." The former have a strong flavor and aroma, and the latter have a rubbery smell and vegetal notes, similar to that of overcooked broccoli. The tails are discarded, while the heart is kept. Once separated, the distiller must decide when to make the first cut and capture as much of the heart as possible.
Distillation is a complex process and can lead to different results. Various types of alcohol are used, and the exact process depends on the type of spirit you are making. Alcohol vaporizes at a lower temperature, so cooler temperatures will have more alcohol. Distillate will appear oily in color and will be slightly slippery to the touch. The final 20-30% of the collected spirit will be called "tails."
The alcohol still has a fermentation capacity of 5 gallons and a condenser with a surface area of 7.9 x 4.3 inches (20x11 cm). The copper materials used in this kit are safe for human consumption. Copper is also used to remove sulfides in the vapor. However, due to the reaction with the alcohol, the copper surfaces will darken. Therefore, regular cleaning is required for effective scavenging.
A distiller alcohol is extracted from fermented liquids using a pot or column still. The boiling point of alcohol is 78.2@C, while other volatile and harmful substances have lower boiling points. The first part of the still is used to extract ethanol alcohol, while the next stage is to separate the volatile and undesirable compounds. The head and foreshots are the first two congeners to be removed, while the heart is the desirable product.
To make a distillate, raw ingredients must be grown and harvested. They are then harvested, milled, pressed, smoked with peat, and delivered to the distillery. Depending on the raw materials, some are shaved, shredded, pressed, smoked with peat, or malted. If sugar is present, it must be converted into fermentable sugars. This process is known as mashing.
Distilled alcohol is a substance that contains more ethyl alcohol than other liquids. It is different from beer and hard cider, which are fermented. The process uses sugar, yeast, and carbon dioxide. The alcohol is produced after the sugar is fermented by the yeast. After distillation, it is separated from the water, giving the liquid a stronger flavor and aroma. This alcohol is then distilled to obtain a high-quality alcoholic beverage.
