I want to make Gin just in small amounts for myself. How does vapor infusion work?

This is quite easy: put the botanicals into a steamer basket and pour tasteless alcohol with approx. 12 % ABV in the kettle below the basket. The photo shows the mixture for 1.5 liters of alcohol. Our book contains a detailed recipe of the ingredients.

Yes, if you eat them. But if boiling them not. So a rowan berry brandy is not poisonous.

This is a rapid test to detect if a spirit contains heads. The test results in three possible colors: yellow --> OK, light green --> fair, dark green --> not advisable to drink
