No, not grappa. The dominant grape of New York is the concord grape, and I doubt that would make a good grappa. Plus I'm not near any wineries.

I'd speak to the owner.

Just buy it and then send the extra that you don't use to a licensed distiller. She'll appreciate it. No waste, no muss. Everybody's satisfied.

Again, I'd talk to the owner and see if they can assist (sell you herb in limited quantities) with your project. They may or may not be able to assist you. It's your best chance.

someone here know the method for determine thujon in absinthe..

Why would you do that? It's completely irrelevant, and unless you have a well calibrated Gas Liquid Chromatography setup ( preferably with a mass spectrometer on the side to make sure you aren't detecting other things as thujone) it's not that easy either. The concentrations aren't large, and trying to detect between 1 and 60 ppm isn't for the faint of heart or "easy".

There is a complicated chemical methodology referenced in US regulations that will provide a binary determination as to whether or not chop.gif is present. I'm not sure of the test's level of sensitivity but wouldn't be surprised to find that's about the 10mg/L standard.

Why determine porkchop when you are in Europe? Italian chemotype ain't high AFAIR.

Boggy, he's trying to do a high school chemistry project.

Here's a 1000 page book on modern methods of GC.

Over at GenTech Scientific you can get some used GC/MS equipment.

Here's a used HP 5970 for only $10,000.

This system from Varian looks very nice. Might be a little pricey though.

I don't know why you're so obsessed with absinthe, as at the high school chemistry level you're going to have enough to learn and experience just with distillation, let alone fermentation. There's so many variables just with those two simple things, that it's far from simple.

He wants to be the cool kid at screwl. Don't crush his hopes, that happens later in life.

The only problem with it is that it doesn't work reliably (with a lot of false positives and false negatives). But if pretending to produce a result is more important than getting it right,…

As much as marc and grappa are akin, grappa seems to be more betterer, if the righteous people are working with grain (DP or Marc are, for instance).

Depends, grappa from white wine and red wine can be night and day. With due caution, the distillation of a white vin de marc can result in a passable, if not interesting, spirit base.
