It teaches you some methods to distill common spirit of wine and remove the excess humidity from it, after that to remove the phlegm from your wine, the acidic and oily substances and to purify tartar. The third book teaches you how to extract herbal essences using highly rectified spirit of wine. This book also makes reference to some curious experiments where you use bottles under vacuum to create artificial and perpetual moving springs. Its an interesting reading but Gosset's "Revelations Cabalistiques d'une Medecine Universelle tirée du vin, avec une manière d’extraire le sel de rosée, et une Dissertation sur les Lampes Sépulchrales" is a better choice if you want to work with wine.
    Thanks for your suggestions !

    This guy has apparently made some medicines and stones and seems to outline a process in his books, but they are German.

    Been somewhat keen on reading these. The sweet smell he mentions is a good sign I think, as it matches up with some of the older authors' claims, might've been Flamel, can't remember.
    Feel free to PM me. Always interested in networking. Don't be shy, dearie.
