These centers can weigh from 40 to 80 lbs. and some can weigh significantly more. The pines are then taken to the refinery where they are cut ready for cooking. The piñas are broiled in unique heaters and the starches in the centers go to sugar. Each piña makes roughly 8 containers of tequila. Subsequent to baking, the piñas are destroyed and put through a press. The press crushes the juice from the destroyed piña mash. The juices are then squeezed from the destroyed mash and set in aging tanks.
When the juices are in the aging tanks, yeast is added. Distillers have their own procedure for the adding of the yeast. As of now, the yeast starts to follow up on the sugars of the cooked mash, handing it over to liquor. Squeezes presently age for 30 to 48 hours. With no extra handling, the matured piña juice has about 6% liquor content. The aged juice is refined two or even multiple times in either standard copper stills or more modern still that are made of hardened steel. The main refining is consistently a harsh, poor quality distillate and the second or third run is utilized to cleanse and consummate the alcohol. At last, distillers need to make an item that catches the fragrance of the agave and, simultaneously, tastes as unadulterated as could really be expected. Liquor content might be somewhere in the range of 70 and 110 Proof.
