Filter Your Vodka- ROTT GUTT Into Grey Goose in 24 Hrs.

Filter your Vodka- ROTT GUTT to Grey Goose in 24 hrs.

Materials/ Tools

1 -750mL cheap $8.99  80 proof vodka store brand/ rott gutt/ you name it -works perfect.

1 - 23oz generic activated carbon granules (this can be used many times over) $9.99 from petco (powder takes too long to filter, so i suggest the size of LEDs

1-4 sealable glass container (canning mason jars/ pickle jars) to soak the vodka and activated carbon

1 Large funnel(new oil filter worked fine) $.99 from auto section of grocery store

1 package of paper coffee filters $2.99 (You'll only need 12 or so) my pack came with 100 pcs (woo hoo)

Space in your freezer to hold the jars

1 auxiliary receptacle for filtering

Step 1- Fill your jar 1/4 the way with the activated carbon (keep in mind water filtration uses food grade carbon, Aquariums use Laboratory grade (even better)

Step 2- Fill jar remaining with vodka, seal with screw cap / shake well and place in freezer for 24-48 hours

Step 3- Set up catching receptacle and funnel and place 3-4 paper filters in the funnel.

Step 4- Shake the Jars well again to loosen up the carbon. Pour the cold vodka into the filter and wait till the funnel is empty, repeat as necessary to empty the jar.

Step 5- pour contents into auxiliary container and repeat process 3 and 4 4-5 times until the vodka is clear like when it started in process 1.

Step 6- This is the most vital and important part of the whole process.  Obtain a empty bottle of Grey Goose, and pour the finished product into using funnel.  Be very careful; as you are now pouring $100 vodka.

Note:  since the vodka has now been filtered 10X better than any mass produced product out there; you will notice a few changes.

1.  NO bitter rott gutt- you can actually taste the difference/ try a taste test comparison (that’s right! do a couple of shots- filtered first- or my favorite blind taste test)
2. NO Hangovers - unlike anything out there, this has been filtered perfectly.  It does what the body does naturally therefore your body doesn’t have to work as hard as it would say” drinking the rott gutt"
3. No Liver pain - Since your liver isn’t working so hard, it CAN actually process the vodka efficiently.  (Go figure); thus the next morning your liver hasn't run a triathlon while you were passed out.
4. NO blurred vision loss of balance- Since you ARE able to process this, you will have an excellent buzz, drink all night, and not feel all wasted/ falling down/ and POS drunk guy hugging on a bottle.  Wear a suit at the parties and impress the ladies! Oh yea.
5. Speaking of ladies, they love flavored vodka.  I produce flavors for vodka that are equal to or better that store bought flavors.  No additives.  Very high concentration (just a couple drops with sparkling water).  Thus since you don’t have cruddy vodka to over-power, you add very little flavor and please do your body a favor and use organic cane sugar to sweeten.  Not that much though/ since you don’t have to overpower the thrust of poo-poo vodka.
6 Speaking of sparkling water/ soda.  NEVER use store bought.  It’s full of toxins and preservatives OK? by the Govt. FDA.  Invest in a CO2 unit or sparkle machine and use your filtered water and carbonate your own water.  Once again PURE is the WORD!

7.  Be responsible.  Know your limit, when you've had enough- call it a night, get some rest and start again another day.  Never Drink and Drive!  REMEMBER this is still 80 proof vodka (try the flame test- If its 80 proof it will light up with a match), and legally your drunk just after a couple of these babies.  So remember to have a designated driver and live happy.  Live Healthy, Enjoy life, you only live once!

8.  The FDA regulates what is sold,  Drink Smart! FDA allows for toxins and crud to be left in the vodka you drink; Microbial crud not viewable to the eye.  The Alcohol Industry doesn’t want you to know this information because it wants you slow, intoxicated, and spending money on crap. Keep that in mind the next time you buy a bottle of $100 vodka.  I bought mine for $8.99 at CVS.($7.99 on sale woo hoo)

9. Most likely I cannot advertise my products I sell to consumers on this page; and for the most part I’m not interested in sales. I want to change the way that people drink, Healthy and Smart.   Spead the word, change the world; ONE SHOT AT A TIME! With My Vodka Factory.

    New development in my experimenting. Side by side comparison of the filtered vs. the un-filtered. When brought to a room temperature; The UN-FILTERED vodka smells like boo-boo! OMG! The filtered smells like ummm, vodka? So, my theory is that somewhere the toxins and crud that is captured by the carbon atoms, somehow absorbs the smell; The boo-boo smell of nasty vodka impurities. Most likely the same way it absorbs the boo-boo smell of a water turtle tank. P.S. the website was lost in server transfer; I'll try to rebuild it this weekend. I stink at websites, so don't make fun of it......Never mind that, make fun of it all you want. Not like I can't take being made fun of, heck; I make fun of boo-boo all the time; sees fit i should eat as much boo-boo as i dish out! Cheers! and good health to all humans! So glad I'm not one :)

    actually 80 "proof" is only 40% alcohol content 60% water content thus it will not but. alcohol must be 101proof (50.5%) or higher to burn. I make the stuff my user name is and I can say that the high content stuff will for sure burn but 90% or more of store bought stuff will not.

    Well, as much as I appreciate your comment, I took this test to the lab. And after several tests I have concluded that 80 proof vodka directly out of the same bottle in the picture does in FACT burn. I placed 10 cc on a saucer and lit it with a bic lighter. Granted,, the flame is a soft blue and doesn't hold long. My suggestion for you is to try it yourself. Not a flash burn like 100 proof, but none the less I stand by my results. Truely seen with a dim light.

    Well I can not wait to try this even though I normally don't buy 100 dollar bottles 8 is less then half what I usually get. Does this work with all sorts of alcohol such as whiskey or rum? Either way can't wait to try this.

    Hi, thanks for sharing your filtering instructable. I have my first batch filtering now. Tell me this, can I reuse the carbon on a future batch? Will it fail to absorb toxins at some point?

    I have used the carbon several times (about a gallon or two. Eventually, yes it absorbs as much as it can; but you will notice the taste goes bad again, and you will notice the rot gutt feeling again. My suggestion is try a few times, and document your findings and determine when is the optimal time to throw the old carbon out. Its also going to depend what vodka or liquor you use, the more expensive liquors will obviously require less toxin to absorb. Come back again, i'm very interested in your findings and lab results. Another thing I've noticed over the past few months is I don't drink as much now. I have found my body has grown accustomed to the filtering, and I've become used to the normal mellow buzz, and I don't have the drive to keep drinking until I'm passed out. Haven't had a hangover in months, and I can get up at 6am every morning for work and function. I also don't sweat out the toxins like I used to. This is truly a drinking evolution. I bet the manufactures of spirits are not going to like me very much. Power to the people! Happy and safe drinking to all and all a good healthy buzz. I have found Petco has the cheapest price on Activated carbon in small quantities, (pictured above) I've been using the same carbon for about 3 weeks now. Like energizer Bunny, keeps going and going.......

    Can you use the same process to improve tequila?

    Matter of fact, I tried this exact experiment last weekend. Even though I am not a Tequila drinker at all, an occasional margarita inspired me to try filtering Jose' Quervo gold that I've had in my freezer (for 4+ years waiting for a guest to request one)

    And behold, the stuff was actually pallatable. I did a cold shot, and didnt even tast the tequilla until after it went down, felt it on my lips when i downed it, didnt feel the nasty burn associated a usual. I didn't have any margarity mix, so I'm sure It would make one fine Margarita. However you should always keep in mind a few precautions when filtering (in my opinion)

    1. Its still 80 proof! you will still get a DUI! this is extreemly dangerous. And I will tell you why: This last weekend I conducted a binge expeiment with filtered 80 proof vodka. Lets just say I nearly finished a 750mL all by myself, and still was able to maintain a clear head, but I will say this. I was drunk. My body was telling me that I had way too much to drink, but my liver was also keeping up with my consumption rate. So, I didnt feel as wasted as I was. It even went trough my head to drive down to Jack - in - thoe box and get some tacos. Luckily my better sense stayed at home and made some noodle potato soup (another instructable I need to make) Sunday I woke up at 10:30 am, felt a bit wooshy, but i didnt have a hangover, migrane, or a stonach ache or throw up or nothing. I took it easy all day, watch some t.v. and relaxed and enjoyed my Sunday. No one should work on Sunday, not even your liver!

    So, aside from all that, experiment, be safe. Remember you only live once; why be drunk the whole time.

    P.S. I live alone, I drink alone; nobody gets hurt; and nobody knows where I live, so keep that in mind when you experiment. Best to do it in a controlled setting; and If you can't control yourself after hours of shots, well, best to have a escape plan. Like a benadryl to safely knock yourself out.
