    ethanol/botanical ratios when upscaling

    To date a lot of development work has been done using 700ml of vodka @ 37.5% abv in our pilot still. We are now shifting over to using GNS reduced with water so the charge will be 1 litre at 60% abv. Given the increase in total volume of charge and increase of alcohol I will be looking to increase the quantity of botanicals. Question is, should the botanical weight increase be in proportion to increase in total charge or increase in volume of alcohol only. My gut feeling is the latter as it is the alcohol we're ultimately re-condensing with all congeners. Anyone have experience of this transition upwards in volume and abv. Feedback greatly appreciated. Cheers All and Happy World Gin Day.
  3. We are switching our botanical infusion from a macerated gin to a vapor infused gin and are working through the baseline quantities of what we will need. Our recipe previously had about 11 pounds of botanicals macerated in a little over 100 gallons of 20 percent neutral spirits and distilled through a 500 liter pot still. We are now going to be distilling on a 1000 liter pot and will be distilling using a vapor basket rather than bathtubing it. Our basket can't even fit the 11 pounds unless you really jam it in and I don't want to risk blocking the condenser. I was looking through conversions and before I start throwing away money running some tests I wanted to see if anyone else had any basic conversions they recommend when converting botanical amounts from maceration to vapor basket. It sounds like you need less botanicals from vapor infusing, but I have heard that some essential oils don't get picked up as well in the basket. I would prefer to run the still full to reduce in utility costs but if it doesn't translate well then we might have to run smaller amounts. Any advice or opinions would help. Thanks guys.

    Location of Gin Basket?

    Hello all, I had a question about experiences people have had using vapor baskets for column distilled gin. I have seen some low tech solutions to building a makeshift basket in the helmet of the still, and seen some have a professionally made basket right before a 5 or 6 plate column. However, I recently have heard from another distiller that you can put the basket after the column, right before the condeser without too much variation in taste. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with any of these methods and if there are any additional benefits or major flavor differences with any of the methods. Thanks for the help.
  8. I'm reading often that botanicals should be at 20-35 grams/liter depending on the recipe. Is this liters of spirit to be collected or total liters of liquid in the charged still? of It seems that there are some varying opinions on the topic. Additionally what are the pros and cons to charging the still at a lower proof (60-80) or at a higher proof (80-120)? Thanks!
  9. Hi, I like everyone else would like to start my own distillery. In am in the Oregon and Washington State area and I know WA requires a craft distillery to produce its product from at least 51% grain grown from within the state. Oregon doesn't have that requirement, but I would like to support local farmers, and the local economy, and purchase things like; corn, wheat, barley, rye, etc direct from local farmers in Oregon and/or Washington. What I can't find is an easy way to do this. Can anyone help? How do you buy things like corn or wheat from a local farmer? Where? Is there a co-op or certain place/website I can go to to do this? Thank you for your time! John
