      Well ! All seems very quiet out there is anyone working on a batch of
      'moon'? What happened to the feller that was going to brew up a batch of
      applejack? To the feller that wanted to know if anybody knew how to make
      charcoal . Foxfire says to strain your 'moon' through a double handful
      of washed hickory coals. It seems like I read on the back of a whiskey
      bottle one time where this paticular whiskey at the distillery was
      filtered thru 3 ft. of maple charcoal. I don't know if this helps but
      its some info I thought I would pass it along. Tony are we losing people
      here or is it just a busy time for everybody? Well I guess thats it for
      now still waiting on reply from Deb and or her hubby!! Thanks!!!

          I have never used that particular turbo yeast but,from my personal experience/IMPO,the faster/higher %age turbos make the least desirable distillate.......have

            difference (if done properly)....good luck
