Activated Carbon 500g
Alcohol filtering with carbon will clean the spirit or ” polish” the spirit by removing impurities. The impurities are what cause a harsh taste and smell. When alcohol carbon filtering the alcohol will be a smooth clean pure product. High-end vodkas are filtered with activated carbon many times to get the pure clean neutral spirit that wins awards. If you want to distil the best possible spirits, then you should definitely use carbon filters.
Filtering is done after the distillation process. First, you distil alcohol using a moonshine still or alcohol distiller. Make the cuts properly through the distillation process so what is left is your heart of the run. Take the hearts and proof them down with water to the desired percentage of alcohol. Then filter the alcohol-water mixture through the activated carbon. When filtering the slower the alcohol goes through the carbon the better it filters. Multiple passes through the carbon help filter even more. Some distilleries will run their vodka through an activated carbon filter 2-3 times or more. Carbon filtering spirits is a great way to take an average spirit and make it a top-shelf high-end spirit very easily.
