Last Two Months...what A Roller Coaster!

This distillation process stuff is way too difficult for me. I'll just stick to my Bacardi and Coke's. Too bad they call it "demon rum" for a good reason B)

If it isn't possible then perhaps the GIG of North America and Scott shouldn't post such things. I believe them to be reliable sources of valuable information.

Well the problem is two-fold.

I know that they also say that wheat grass and barley grass has no gluten in it. Theoretically this is probably true, but they both sure make me sick! I would say it's the same for distillation, it's just not a perfect process.

This is the first reason, except two distillations are never the same ... especially in a mixed solution with hundreds of consituents and where the presence of one affects the BP of another (called an azeotrope) ... other things like vewry small changes in temp and air presure also affect it... but the effects are rather unpredicatble because one small change can effect something else...

As a side note alcohol is a poison to the body. Could it be possible that some people just don't tolerate alcohol regardless of the source? People react to things differently. What might cause a person a great buzz to alcohol can cause another a nasty mood and a hangover to boot.

Just a thought.

Probably, partly... If I oly drink good wine Im fine, I can drink 3 bottles and no after effects (apart from getting drunk)... but when I touch vodka or even stuff like colored cognacs (still made from grapes just with caramel color) I get randomly sick...

One possible reason is the alcohol can aid very small amounts of gluten across the gut/blood barrier through what are called ion-gates.
