I like many other people have a theory.
Now being a theory, means that everything i say is hypothetical and that means i have no intention of making my own form of absinthe. Let me Explain.

As im sure you all know Absinthe, along with many other forms of ALCOHOL, has a very high alcohol content, expressed in % by volume.
Now, i have never seen a bottle of commercial absinthe before in my life so,
I wouldnt know what absinthe was if it fell on my head guillotine.gif

Now i reckon that this procedure could be done one of 2 ways. COULD, MAY, MIGHT! ALL HERESAY!

Now hypothetically speaking, if one fermented a form of sugar by aid of some form of yeast, then alcohol could be created with a little help from H20 & Time.
In addition if you distilled that mixture, then its possible you could obtain a high volume of alcohol...BUT i have heard of another form of fermentation that involves naturally occuring substances like fruits, vegetables and organic matter for example. Now, hypothetically speaking If one was to distill a mixture of fermented apples for example, then i am fairly confident that you could still obtain the same high alcohol content, BUT you would have a very DIFFERENT tasting end result as opposed to a sugar/yeast fermentation.
Which brings me to my next point; I am willing to bet my cheese and crackers, that a alcohol derived from a naturally occuring piece of fruit, would taste a hell of a lot better than an artificially occuring substance such as yeast.
SOO, if one was to be involved in a raging debate, as to what the best absinthe in the land is/was, one could assume that a naturally distilled version would be tastier and have a much better palate than an artifically distilled version.
So..back to the original question; Do you know what your drinking? Are you sure your sure?? high.gif

Thank you for sharing your groundbreaking "yeast free fermentation" hypothesis with us here in the Vintage Absinthe section. I read your innovative proposal to use fermented fruit as the basis for an alcohol with great interest - I've always wondered what to do with the many tons of grapes we produce each year on our farm here, and your proposal might just have given me a solution to the problem.

Have you considered posting your insights on that marvellous website, www.absinthebuyersguide.com? I think someone of your stature might find the intellectual milieu there even more congenial.

Unfortunately i am not as smart as you MAY think i am, because i am getting mixed messages regarding your comment oxygenee. By that i mean im struggling to work out whether it was a sophisticated compliment and a subtle hint, or you were trying taking the piss outta me blink.gif
Despite what people may think, i am an uneducated teenager who only knows how to make booze & drugs. Pretty sad if you think about it alien2.gif
the words milieu and congenial mean nothing to me ph34r.gif...unfortunately

He referred you to a forum dominated by idiots and thieves and said you might be more at home there. And he wasn't commenting about your honesty.

You might want to lose that moniker, too, you wear it like a beanie with a propeller on top.

I wish Don was here to field this question. I'm to civil to say what I want to say.

"I am willing to bet my cheese and crackers, that a alcohol derived from a naturally occuring piece of fruit, would taste a hell of a lot better than an artificially occuring substance such as yeast."

Is this for real? shock.gif

The_Master_Alchemist, go learn what fermentation and distillation are.

Not only that, he posted it twice. I was tempted to actually explain it all too him, but I couldn't figure where to start...

Well, actually I would encourage you to make artificially distilled alcohol at home. In fact you'd probably win a fucking Nobel prize since science has yet to invent such a method. I'm also sure that would be perfectly legal since it wouldn't involve any actual distillation.

I also suspect that naturally manufactured Sky Hooks and camouflage paint are better than artificially manufactured ones.

Good luck, champ!
