I am new here and I have gained a lot of valuable information reading on this forum. Thank you!
I am now in the process of setting up a small commercial distillery and have purchased an electrical heated bain-marie still that is soon to be delivered. I will be making Gin and other flavored liquors from very high grade 96% ABV neutral that I purchase from a large industrial factory. I will be using a Gin Basket standing besides the boiler for vapor infusion.
I have 2 questions I hope you can help me to discuss and clarify:
I have been reading a lot about the safety issue that sets the max recommended boiler charge to 40% ABV but I have also read that some commercial distillers like Hendriks use 60% ABV boiler charge. What are your recommendations for boiler charge ABV in a double wall bain-marie boiler?
Regarding the water in the boiler after a run - can this be reused or must this, together with the last part of the spirit, be thrown out?
Please ask questions if something are unclear in my description :-)
