So let’s make some brandy. I will document the process in this blog. First of all, we have to prepare the container where the fruit will be collected. I built a nice brick and wood base onto to which to place the container. After that the container is checked for leaks. The one I’m using has been sitting in the barn for a year and is pretty dried up. So first I will keep it wet and hope that it swells up to close any holes. This process takes a few hours, until we’re sure that the container is sealed. Next, time to collect the fruit and fill the container up with prunes, pears and even apples. See you next time.
