Vodka Distillation Manufacturing Process
Having the right vodka still is important for the manufacturing process. Large vodka stills can help you create large batches of brew at one time, allowing you to use more mash at one time and ferment more alcohol at a faster rate. The first step in manufacturing vodka is the mash preparation.
This is where your raw materials, vegetables or grains are mashed by agitators that break them down and the ground malt meal is added to promote the conversion of starches to sugars. To prevent bacteria from growing, you have to sterilize the mash by heating it to the boiling point. Then lactic acid bacteria is added to the mixture to raise the acidity level, making it perfect for the fermentation process.
Once you begin the fermentation process, the mash is separated and poured into large stainless steel vats where yeast is added and the vats are closed shut so the enzyme in the yeast can sit undisturbed to convert the sugars to ethyl alcohol. They ethyl alcohol produced is later pumped into the stills and continuously cycled up and down while heated with steam to remove impurities.
Lastly, adding water makes the spirit drinkable by decreasing the alcohol percentage. You can add your flavorings here as well for finished customized vodka that’s ready to be bottled.
