Country fella is using the discards from canning fruit to make a sort of peach wine.

His filtering process can be sped up if he simply cut the bottom off of a 1 gallon plastic milk jug, attached it to a column (1x4 for example) add filters, and simply pour the contents in the top and wait.

A sort of inverted filtering system.

To make Brandy one would then have to distill the wine.

I'd bet it comes in at about 27% alcohol.

Just FYI

He uses ice distilling, which is really sharp and a very worthwhile skill to have if one wants to Barter for something one may not have the cash.

He also uses cheese cloth, which makes sense, the problem is it is still slow, now if a column is used, ie a 1 gallon jug, it will be far less labor intensive.
