Course Instruction

A&S 306: Spirit Chemistry (3)
Course Description: In this course, students will explore the production of distilled spirits. The production of distilled spirits involves three basic steps: selection and processing of a carbohydrate (starch or sugar), fermentation of the carbohydrate to produce ethanol and distillation of the ethanol. In these processes, substances are produced and concentrated in the ethanol that create the unique flavors and fragrances associated with the individual spirit. Seven distilled spirits (moonshine, vodka, gin, rum, tequila, bourbon and scotch) will be discussed in detail.
