    well I am at a loss. I cant find any in bulk packs.. only £5.50 for a retail jar of 70gm. has anyone substituted black peppercorn with good results?
  5. is anyone aware of an affordable (less than £300) hydrometer for spirits production that is allowed by hmrc?

    How do they flavour those Gins!

    So we have changed our idea and are now going to go with a cherry flavoured gin in addition to our dry gin. I am actually considering simply adding a cherry syrup or cherry flavour essence of some type and adding sugar. ... does anyone use something similar ?

    Dephlegmator Needed For London Dry Gin?

    I was going down to 30% originally, too earthy nutty... last time around i stopped at 45% and whilst it does slow down notably with the same input power it is still a very nice product at the end. In the uk we use NGS so leaving alcohol in the boiler is waster money.. but you have to be strict or the end result whilst the yield is greater is not good at all. I am using a simple pot still, 50l with 2kw input so it is quite slow (we are only a very small operation) maybe thats why I can go down to 45% abv and it still be acceptable in my final product.

    This is a similar point I keep asking about with bubble plates and macceration. Out of interest what vapour temp do people typically stop collecting? I stopped as high as 98c on my last run as I couldn't detect the nutty earthy notes but the final watered down product did have a little too much worthiness for my palate

    good enough for me Paul - thanks again, and the .2 micron won't filter out flavour from my Gin?

    You have to ring up to order, when I did they only had 1 type of juniper. It cost me £75 iirc for 3kg juniper and 1.5 coriander... ask for some samples as well. I got some citruspeel, angelic root, cardamom.

    Thanks Paul. I had been advised to go for enolmatic but to go for the specific spirit one with stainless steel and suitable hose.

    I tried just ingredients, the quality difference between them and organicherb is substantial... certainly for corriander and juniper. higher moisture content for the juniper and a more pronounced flavour - the corriander is notably more flavoursome and the aroma is more intense

    And the 25kg aren't that much cheaper I don't think... what do you pay? If you don't mind me asking.... do head on provide organic?

    You are right on the money! I came to that conclusion earlier today. Talking filters... I am going to go with a vacuum bottle filler, i am in two minds whether to also get an inline filter with it as well.. any thought on that?
