We've just run a batch of gin off a 100L milk can boiler with a dash column and gin basket.
Once distilled the gin taste great and was crystal clear. However when we added the water to reduce the ABV the gin became cloudy.
The water used was de-ionised and from what we have read it could be called louching caused by oil content from the botanicals in the liquid reacting with the water.
In order to clear this we did some reading and had to add more base spirit at the same strength and the gin and then filter it. Questions are...
What's the best way to stop this happening? Use less botanicals? Different water? I read somewhere that adding gin to the water is better than adding water to gin?
Any help would be appreciated!
