We've got a deposit down on our 200L SD boiler but I have some questions about power usage/run times. This set up is for gin production with two different options. Both would rely on immersion elements. Scenario 1 is that botanicals are placed in 200L water/spirit at 50% ABV. Vapour path would be via a dephlegmator, then condensers to product collector. The second set up replaces the dephlegmator with a gin basket kit.
Are any of wise folk able to shine some light on the basic equation I should be using to calculate the energy input required to collect a very short heads run, hearts of around 70L at circa 80% ABV, then tails for repurposing. Any guidance on type of element, power consumption etc greatly appreciated (we're creatives not scientists!).
