- Why is it recommended to dilute spirits down to 50-60% before polishing with
activated carbon ? What does the higher strength alcohol do; block the
active sites (if so, how)?
I am not an expert on this matter, but maybe it's related to the fact that
fusels dissolve better in high grade alcohol and less so if the alcohol is
lower in percentage.
If the alcohol is diluted, and the fusels are less dissolved, they are then
more easily 'captured' by the carbon; or is this total bullshit? Brian???
