Subject: [Distillers] The Great Carbon DebateHi Members,After reading about the "drop by drop" remarks about JD, I found this in my archives (from the net) about the real thing as follows:
Jack also writes : I see people trying to duplicate Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey (It is NOT a bourbon - the charcoal filtering procedure was legally recognized as producing a separate type of whiskey after World War II) on some of the e-groups; the essential step is to filter the unaged spirit through charcoal (not activated carbon) that has been made out of sugar maple wood.Thought that this may help or, perhaps, even throw fuel on the fire.
As one member said just the other day "$6 when you are on a pension is $6". Perhaps some people make alcohol at home because they can't go out and buy the stuff because of the price ! ! ! It's not just a matter of "being able to do it yourself". Perhaps it's also a matter of economics. Please members, don't knock the people who are genuinely endeavouring to make ends meet and trying to maintain a style of life. I'm sure that there are more than just one of us, eh!
Regards (from Australia - where the temperatures are starting to drop, here in Middlemount at night it's a chilly 10°C - BRRR!)
