Re: Does anyone have a Makkoli recipe, or a link to one?

if its for personal use why would you need a license? This article explains it. This spells out the law. In the United States, among 330 million people, there are plenty that have sufficient money, but insufficient intelligence. Plenty of them would make dangerously bad whiskey and sell it to other...

Re: Does anyone have a Makkoli recipe, or a link to one?

Still catching up on your post, did you ever make Soju? Nope. That would require distillation, which is seriously illegal here in the US, except byv federally licensed and taxed distilling companies. Beside needing a license, your also have to pay tax. If they caught you, the federal tax agency (IR...

Re: Marantzia: pseudo-chinotto (not chinotto at all, actually)

Why wait 58yrs to say that line? Couldn`t you speak for the first 4 years of your life? #-o WA I only read the Alice books when I was five. So that's when the waiting started. Then, for the next 58 years, I didn't have a good enough invention for which I would deserve to say the White Knight's line...

Looks delicious!
It really is.

It's not anything like beer, and it isn't like chinotto, which was the inspiration, but it really is good.

Like the White Knight says in Through the Looking Glass: "It's my own invention".

I've been waiting 58 years to quote that line. :D

Re: Marantzia: pseudo-chinotto (not chinotto at all, actually)

I tried the first one today. It had been three weeks in the bottle. I opened the snout of the batch, a small 250ml tester, and shared it with my wife. She likes it, says it's much better than tepache. It's amazing, and I will definitely make it again. I noticed the aroma first. It's perfumed, redole...

Lari,
I thought Flickr was free?
Misprint. It's clumsy fingers on my phone plus autocorrect.

That should have been 'how to post from Flickr'.

Sorry. :oops:

Re: Marantzia: pseudo-chinotto (not chinotto at all, actually)

I finally figured out how to pay from Flickr. After burning / caramelizing the oranges, the inside of the pan needed to be soaked overnight. Then I went at it with a razor. (The kind inside a holder, you know, so it isn't dangerous.) Then the dishwasher, and finally it came clean. This was 3 large o...

Re: Marantzia: pseudo-chinotto (not chinotto at all, actually)

Lari, Great Post! =D> Hope it turns out OK! How does tonic water add 1%ABV? WA The tonic water I used, linked here. The "Nutrition Facts" area says 34g sugar/360ml. So 2L has 34g*2000/360 = 189 g of sugar, completely fermentable. The batch size is only 11L. So 189g will raise the gravity about 6.5 ...

Marantzia: pseudo-chinotto (not chinotto at all, actually)

That's the inspiration for this: chinotto. But it will fail to be chinotto. I can't get chinotto oranges, and even if I could I wouldn't use them because they contain a chemical (as does grapefruit) that interferes with the function of the heart medication my wife takes. So what this is, is a bitter...

Re: Tepache

Yesterday I made something influenced by tepache. It's an 11-litre batch. Based on the sugar content on the cans of pineapple juice, I expect it to be around 4% ABV. That was a while ago, so I thought I'd report back on it. The recipe is good but next time I'll make one tweak. I find it too sweet f...
