Spiced Rum....amount of each spice

Recommended Posts

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?

Spices vary greatly from batch to batch. I infuse each separately, usually a few pounds of each in over proof spirit. Then I have an extract that I can blend to meet my desired flavor profile.

It should scale, if all process steps are the same. But it will vary each time, as batches of spice vary.
