- hello all, I'm a very newbie and this is my first post!
I have 2 questions,
1. I know how the spirit came to be blue, but how do I get it out?
It's already been distilled twice.
2. I'm having a great deal of difficulty understanding the carbon
process, although have read thousands of pages about it (must be the
missing brain cells!) I'd like some help on exactly how musc of the
stuff to put in what, how long to leave it and how to differentiate
between the different types if they're not clearly labelled when I
thanks, I hope someone can help me.
- Go to "www.partyman.se" and you should be able to get some info there.
I have a pvc pipe about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter and about 3 meters
in length. I fill it about 2/3 full with .5 to 1mm activated carbon used for
filtering liquids that I obtained from "Calgon Carbon Corporation" and I run
about 2 liters before changing the carbon. I clamp two plain, ordinary
coffee filters on one end of the pipe, just in case you were wondering. The
end result is a crystal clear "sprite" (you know what I mean). Keep your
filtering pipe clean. You can easily see the carbon residue after each run
inside of the pipe. Oh! Also, I throw away the first 10 to 20 cc or 2-4
teaspoons of the filtrate because it may have a bluish discoloration, but
that soon clears. Good luck!
