Apple Brandy Cuts


Recommended Posts

When we covered this through a thread back in 2008, we ended up in a strange place, where we thought it might be possible to chaptalize in the distillery, but not in a bonded winery transferring to a distillery. That was because of the specific call out in the wine regs that said you can transfer wine to a distillery, provided you don't add sugar. But it does not say that in the distilling section when calling out use of standard wine.

Moonshiners chaptalizing corn would not be relevant in any case, it is not standard wine.

In the end for us, for apple, we decided to avoid apple wine (almost all are chaptalized), and use unchaptalized cider instead.
