So we are looking at producing a spiced rum. If have a recipe of the spices for a five gallon batch. The question is though, do I have to scale the spices 1 for 1 up to a 200 gallon batch? So if I would use 1 vanilla bean...do I now need 40 beans? Or can you get away with smaller amounts and just steep longer? Gin basket or masceration? Thoughts?
I am wondering if I could get some advice on making spiced rum using maceration? I bought around 10 ingredients but have no idea where to start with blending them (amounts) or what proof I should be macerating at. I know some things like cinnamon and star anise can be overpowering quick and others take more time to steep. I was thinking of doing each one separately in their own mason jar and then blending the tinctures. Right now I am starting with a full bottle (750ml) of 80proof silver rum and eyeballing the ingredients. I just ordered a scale that does smaller weights since mine only goes down to 1 gram and I thought about making tea bags with small amounts so I could use less than 750ml bottle of rum. Any advice would be a great help! Thanks in advance
