tgif Posted April 5, 2021 Share Posted April 5, 2021 We're experimenting with gin and would really love to put citruses in the basket. We cut up some citruses in half, placed them all in the basket for vapor infusion, used about 90 proof to run a distillation, diluted the hearts (about 170 proof) back down to about 100 proof and let it rest for a couple of days. All was well until we found a layer of oil and the distillate milky, I assume from the oils. We've done other distillations and vapor infusions with other botanicals without this problem so we're wondering if anyone could help us answer these questions: 1) Why did it happen? 2) How can it be prevented if we insist to do a vapor infusion with citruses? (E.g. Put less citrus? Use lower proof to distill? Faster/slower distillation...?) 3) Any techniques to clear up the currently "oily" distillate? Any advice would be highly appreciated!
