Clue to Riddle #69: Combing the Dregs of Glasses to Make a New One

69. At a whisky tasting Mr Cheap works out that for every 10 used, empty, glasses he can collect, he can poor the dregs together to make a whole new glass of whisky. At the end of the day he is able to find 100 empty glasses. How many full glasses can he now drink?
Full glass of whisky to illustrate this puzzle. Just a quickie. There's an obvious trap to fall in to here. The answer is not 10. You can immediately make 10 full glasses, but that is not the end of it.
