Cutty Posted August 14, 2010 Share Posted August 14, 2010 Hi All, I am in the planning stages of a new distillery and I am interested in the effect of dilution (with quality water) on the flavor profile of the final spirit. I ask this question in reference to the sizing of a still. I want to purchase a still with a large enough capacity that I am not forced to purchase a second still, too soon, as I expand production. This creates the problem that I may not be able to run smaller experimental batches. I see two ways to get around this either dilute a small batch to the minimum volume charge of the still, or produce large experimental batches ( I am leaving out the obvious approach of a small experimental still for capital cost reasons). The larger batch approach seems to be a very costly and wasteful approach. Dilution seems to be a good approach, however I do not know if the distillate flavor profile from the dilute wash will be representative of the corresponding concentrated wash. Any thoughts or experiences will be very helpful to me. Thanks, Ian Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
