For avid hobbyists, the fun doesn't stop after they get wine, some wish to distill it so they would enjoy a higher proof alcohol. Wines, since they're made from grapes, are made as fruit washes to make brandy, cognac and grappa. Here are some information about beverages that are produced from distilling wine.
Unless you're collecting rain or snow, water distillation costs money because it uses fuel or electricity to heat the source water. It's cheaper to buy bottled distilled water than it is to make it on your stove. ... It is much less expensive than bottled water or delivery services.
The main risks of drinking only distilled water are associated with the lack of dissolved minerals, such as magnesium and calcium. Some of the adverse effects of drinking just distilled or low mineral water include: a flat taste that many people find unappealing, leading to reduced water consumption.
Boiled water is simply water that has reached its boiling point, usually within a few minutes. Distilled water has had all of its impurities removed, including minerals and microorganisms. Boiled water is free from microorganisms but still contains mineral salts, like calcium.
Purified water is usually a good option since the purification process removes chemicals and impurities from the water. You should not drink distilled water since it lacks naturally-occurring minerals, including calcium and magnesium, that are beneficial for health.
How much electricity does a water distiller use? The average water distiller uses around 3 kilowatt hours to make 4 litres of distilled water. This equates to an average electricity cost of 12p per kilowatt hour, therefore each litre of distilled water costs around 9p to make.
As long as you keep it airlocked (or nearly) you can put it off indefinitely. I mean wine may be left in carboys for even a year sometimes and it doesn't hurt it. A few days wont hurt your mash. oxygen in you fermentation containers, this could cause it to vinegar (if you're using fruits).
Additionally, experienced distillers have determined that simply discarding a standard amount per batch, based on batch size, is enough to keep things safe. The rule of thumb is to discard 1/3 of a pint jar for every 5 gallons of wash being distilled.
Yes you can. You can also use the cheapest rotgut beer/malt liquor in the corner store. This actually has a purpose: it's a great way to try out your still without wasting mash, or before you find a mash recipe you want to try. It's also a good way to break in a new still.
