Just a quick note re the carbon. Another site and poster has brought to our attention that there are varying degrees of carbon for various jobs. The poster was a professional distiller so I assume he's to be believed. I'm guessing our hobby suppliers don't even stock the right stuff (fishtank filter stuff probably).
Anyways, the pro distiller gave a link to where to get correct carbon, so here 'tis...
Use the food filter
Select alchohol(malt) or Rum or Vodka
go from there
There's different carbons for different beverages and also for removal of colour or smell/taste.
Cost & pack size etc. you'll have to contact the company (facility on the site).
