I recently attended a rum making class with the intention of taking what I had learned and applying it to my own process... unfortunately (or fortunately 😂) we were plied with so much rum that I can’t remember the measures.
I’m hoping someone can help fill in the gaps! The intention is to start with a base rum and create a spiced rum at the end.
We were using the alembic distillers and started with a 700ml base rum. We added our ingredients/flavours to the pot, along with the base rum.
As we heated it up, the process began and we started to fill up a small beaker with the head, I think this was 50ml, does that sound about right?
Once we poured off the head, we started filling another beaker with the heart (the part that we’re keeping). Again, not sure how much this should be? Once it hit that point we kept it and set it aside. The tail then continued into another beaker.
So the head and tail were discarded, the heart was then mixed with water to create a 700ml bottle.
I’d love it if anyone could help with how the measurements of the head and heart.
