      I'm not sure that I agree with your comments re. carbon Distilleries
      such as Jack Daniels when they make a special Bourbon think highly
      enough of the carbon treatment process to declare it on the label, also
      there are two steps to the way a carbon works the first is the removal
      of fusels which I agree in a good quality still should be almost
      unnecessary, however carbon still has a role to play in polishing the
      alcohol, knocking any rough edges off it and improving the mouth feel.
      I am not sure why you are having a problem posting to one list. I just
      send the message from my mail programme. Are you sending it from the One
      list site ?

      Hello Ray,
      In respect to my comments about the use of carbon, you have put your finger
      on the exact point I was trying to make. Whether using the carbon to remove
      the bulk of the fusels, or later to �polish� the resulting liquor by
      removing the
      higher alcohols that slipped through the first treatment and which give that
      nasty �bite�, it is an acknowledgement that the still has not been 100%
      efficient
      in stripping these alcohols out.
      What I didn�t say � and I cheerfully admit that I should � I have to use
      carbon
      myself and am constantly trying new designs that will hopefully relieve me
      of
      this chore. It seems you�ve gone a long way towards this with your
      magnificent
      Moonshine Still. Intriguing design!
      I find it fascinating that Jack Daniels use carbon as a means of speeding up
      the
      process of getting their product to the market. Sounds like a smart move.
      I can�t figure out why my emails are not automatically wrapping at the end
      of each line. First time I�ve encountered such a problem. Probably finger
      trouble at my end. I�ve tried sending both from the One list site and from
      my
      email prog � same result.
      All the best,
      Mike
