On this page, I'll share a simple Gin recipe. The recipe includes only five ingredients: water, purified alcohol, lemon skin, orange skin, and juniper berries. The Gin was made with the help of "Alex 25" alcohol still and herbals infusion chamber. Before distillation, the alcohol distiller was loading with 9 liters of fresh water and 1 liter of purified ethanol that pre-made with the same still using the "basic recipe" that you can find on the main Recipe page.
Thus we will need one skin of the lemon and one skin of an orange, and the skins must be chopped,
also, we will need approximately 100 - 150 grams of dried juniper berries, and the berries should be crashed a little bit so the vapors could penetrate the berry and remove the essential oils.
The infusion chamber is filling as follows: the skins of orange and lemon are mixed and loaded first, then on top of skins, we loading the juniper berries,
applying the lid with the column connection and connecting the stripping column,
switching on the cooling water and electricity and making sure that everything is ready for Gin collection.
With this recipe we should get a bit more than 2L of 40% Gin.
Use table below to calculate the ratio of water and spirit to obtain the needed strength of alcoholic drink.
Where X – spirit strength before dilution with water/ %alc/vol
V – Spirit strength after dilution with water/%alc/vol
calculate the amount of water needed for achieving a certain percentage
of alcohol - Take the top raw as a guide and check what figure matches
the spirit percentage you have got.
Example: we have got 2L of alcohol @ 95% and we want to make 40% drink so we will need to find the amount of water to be added thus 2L of spirit must be multiplied by figure that cross match 40 on a vertical axis – the figure is 144.4 so 2L * 144.4 = 288.8 then divide the result by 100. 288.8÷ 100 = 2.888L of water that will be added to alcohol to make 40% drink in this case you have got 2.888 + 2 = 4.888 L of 40% alc/vol drink.
