Pyrate Posted March 11 Share Posted March 11 Hey Folks, I had a new recipe in my still. 3 days maceration, a lot of crushed juniper, all distilled in the pot with some reflux in the column. We diluted to drinking strength at 45% ABV. It got immediately cloudy. Right now we are discussing the best way to get rid of the louche before we bottle the gin. Adding neutral at the same ABV might be a way. But the dilution we need seems to be to high. We tested and the results are that we need 2 parts neutral at 45% ABV to 1 part of the gin at 45% ABV to get rid of the cloudiness. We are wondering if filtering might be a solution? Has anyone experience in filtering cloudy gins to get rid of the haze? I have the Enolmatic bottler and therefore can put some filter cartridges at work. Might 0.5 micron help here? Do we have to chill or does it work because the haze is already visible at room temperature? Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
