While enduring the painful journey of the Moonshining business (its not actually a business), I have encountered many problems and created many solutions. Today I will show you one of my simple solution to get rid of any particles/discoloration/unnatural odor from your product (once again.. a product as in the resulting substance, not me selling it). Thanks to the Keep the Bottle Contest I got my rump in gear to show you how I recycle and purify my moonshine at the same time.
This filter can be used to clarify and purify moonshine (which is ethanol), in order to be use as fuel for mini stoves, lighter fluid, or even causing a warming sensation if consumed.
It really doesn't matter what color your moonshine is, or what it smells like, or even if there is crap floating around in it. You SHOULDN'T be drinking it. If for some God forsaken reason a sip or two accidental managed to plunge down your throat, it would be less disgusting having been previously filtered.
DISCLAIMER: I take no responsibility for anything whatsoever that results in the following of this instructable. Moonshine is illegal to distill and not intended for human consumption. This how2 is simply how to filter out any odors particles and abnormal colors.
Step 1: Supplies Needed
Lucky for you aquarium owners, you can probably find the needed supplies around your house.
I used a water bottle for demonstration, but soda bottles have a convenient blue seal on the inside of the lid which keeps everything in place. You can use an any size bottle that you want. Bigger bottles will be able to hold more moonshine to be filtered, so that you do not have to constantly fill them up.
You just need a piece the size of the bottle's cap
This is stuff that you are supposed to put in aquarium filters to remove organic odors and colors. If is clean and safe enough for your pets, why not use is for moonshine?
