flyhigher87 Posted July 4, 2018 Share Posted July 4, 2018 Howdy guys, So I was at a gin distillery the other day and they macerate for 24 hours. throw everything in the kettle. And then distill with 4 plates in their column and use a dephlagamator(not sure what the output was set at). So I was wondering doesn't using plates after a maceration take away the flavor of the gin? I get why you would use plates before a gin basket, if you think the vapor should be a certain ABV before it runs through the gin basket. But I don't get why you would increase ABV/ increase rectification with plates after macerating. Wouldn't you basically be rectifying your flavor out of your gin? If anyone does this or has any thoughts on it let me know. I'm really curious. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
