Re: Does everyone carbon treat?
- I *don't* use it because I'm much too lazy to muck around filtering
the very pure vodka which I obtain thru stripping and then a very
slow spirit run with high reflux ratio. I don't mind the relatively
long distillation time because it doesn't require my attendance and
I'm sure the extra cost for electricity and cooling water is less
than the cost for carbon filtering.
My opinion FWIW.
