I have now finished my Brandy runs and have the final collection / blend at 90% ABV, about 18L.
Do I place this in oak barrels as the strength it is or do I reduce alcohol to near finished requirement of 42%?
I have two 10L new oak barrels, so roughly how long in the barrels?
Does alcohol evaporate quicker than water ? Logic tells me it does.
My trial run last year was 5L of Brandy at 45% in small oak barrel (new) and after 8 months there was only 3.5L remaining (greedy angels I say). I will take an alcohol reading later to see what the % is after 8 months.
