Maceration

Recommended Posts

Hello Forum Members

I am new to distilling, doing it as hobby, and on a quest to make my own perfect gin (perfect for me I hope). Very small batch, have a copper compound still for neutral, then will run in pot still mode for my flavouring run. I have a question on macerating botanicals. How broken up are they in maceration? Take juniper berries for example, are you grinding them up so each berry is broken or smashed into fine pieces such as a coffee bean grinder, or just crushing them as if each berry was passed under a rolling pin?

Welcome you help.

You may find some reluctance on this forum to giving advice to hobbie distillers. There is a wealth of information on other sites (http://homedistiller.org/forum/) that may be a better place to mine for information.

Good luck
