I finally made a good batch of absinthe, here's a video describing how.
In my first attempt, I tried using a rubber stopper and norprene tubing in the distillation setup, but it tasted off (could've been imaginary, and I also didn't add extra water and distill that too... which carries all the anise oil afaik).
I replaced the rubber with cork, and the Norprene with copper (just a collar of Norprene to create a seal with the condenser)
When I say I added extra water it was 400mL. Also "coffee holder" -- I meant "coffee filter".
The background music is an old song: [SNIP]
