      Chemical Cleansing Fresh Home Made Alcohol

      This is a free type translation/interpretation of a freely available material found on web pages dedicated to production of alcohol at home. There are no claims of any kind for this data.

      The first chemical reaction of saponification binds fusel oils and makes it insoluble. In order for this reaction to work, alcohol must be tested for pH. If reaction shows that home made alcohol does contain dissolved acids then regular baking soda should neutralize the reaction. The proportion is 5g~8g of baking soda per each liter of alcohol.

      After adding baking soda and stirring it well, potassium permanganate is added. Potassium permanganate should be dissolved in small quantity of clean water beforehand. The ratio is 2g of potassium permanganate dissolved in 50 mL of clean water per each liter of home made alcohol. The mix of alcohol, baking soda and potassium permanganate is stirred well and left alone for 15~20 minutes for reaction to finish.

      After this stage is complete, additional baking soda is added to the mix in the same proportion as above, stirred and left alone for 8~12 hours for precipitation of solids.

      Next day any sediment is filtered and alcohol goes through the second distillation. This method of removing fusel oils is rather efficient and removes up to 95% of its content.

      After the second distillation, home made alcohol is slowly filtered through activated charcoal.

        The use of baking soda is widely documented, just search here: http://foag.co.cc/ for baking soda As for permanganate, it is used to to convert aldehydes

          The use of baking soda is widely documented, just search here:
          http://foag.co.cc/
          for "baking soda"

          As for permanganate, it is used to to convert aldehydes into
          carboxylic acids, and is very little documented. The dose mentionned
          here seems a lot to me.
          You can find more about it here :
