- Dec 3, 2000Ãbout airstones,
if they are really "stone" or at least some ceramic stuff,
it is IMPOSSIBLE to disolve them in alcohol.
Maybe you got such a synthetic ( plastic ) one, than there is no garantie.
If you got a good stone you will work a lot faster than without stone,
as the purpus is to evaporate a very volentile substance OR
to oxidise another one.
I also fill in by the other reaction, that one week aeration can easely
a lot of alcohol and lieve a liquid with more water and less alcohol.
If you like to lose a sharp taste, what about some activated carbon,
to filter the stuff over ?
