We're making a gin and are using liquorice root powder and orris root powder.
Obviously orris isn't there for flavour, however the liquorice is. Now I'm the distiller (very amateur though) and to my awareness using powders makes no difference, except in concentration when using the same weight. However my project managers seem to be worried about the powder coming out of the muslin bag and as such not being able to be extracted from the liquid at our set Maceration time.
They seem to be worried about 2 issues:
I think (2) is unlikely as the liquid when heated is constantly moving and so would the powder. However not sure on (1)
Can anyone advise?
