- Plastics, plastics, plastics...
To quote The Chemist from the homedistiller forums (who is a real chemist and works in
the beverage alcohol industry):
"SOME plastics are okay to store LOW PROOF alcohol in (polycarbonates only, please--
unless you really CAN afford PTFE)--NO PLASTIC is good for hot or high proof alcohol."
"In the course of my work, I've seen many, many plastic bottles with high proof spirits in
them. Sent to me by the distillers. I have yet to find one sample that didn't contain
detectable amounts of plasticizer. How much di-iso-octyl phthalate do YOU want to eat?"
He later clarified his position and said that small amounts of PTFE (Teflon, as thread tape)
is okay for high temps and strengths.
Unfortunately he didn't give a definition of 'low proof'.
