While Waiting for Our Buko Pie !

A relatively big bottle barely filled with lambanog. The spirit is infused with whole langka lamukot. I guessed the langka has been there for a long time. It is loosing its yellow color, becoming hairy – a feature that cannot be observed on fresh jackfruit meat. The bottle with lambanog and langka was able to hold my attention and perhaps it is there for the very purpose.

You can get alcohol hydrometer at your nearest Laboratory Supplies. The one used for this infographic was bought for 750 pesos. If you have enough budget, wine refractometer is a more expensive alternative but it is easier to use.
