Activated Carbon

Read a good book? Any topic is a good one. If it is about moonshine of other spirits, beer, or wine then that is a bonus.

Way more in-depth than that freebie from Gert Strand.

Activated Carbon

Harry Marsh &
Francisco Rodriguez-Reinoso
[ 542 pages ]

Much is already written about activated carbon such that the Google search
engine will offer over one million pages from the Internet. These pages are
mostly descriptive and uncoordinated.

Currently, there exists a need for a text which establishes a framework into
which factual information can be located and explained. Further, carbon science
has expanded rapidly in recent years with considerable relevance to an
understanding of activated carbon. Again, these information are mostly
uncoordinated and need to be assimilated into a comprehensive story. This
assimilation is the purpose of this book.

what an excellent book Harry.
It has a lot of the stuff I have learned about "designer" carbon that many companies have been making for years.
Calgon provides Bacardi a designer carbon that is used to remove the barrel color from Bacardi Silver. All Puerto Rican rums must be aged for 1 year by law before it is bottled. Don Q uses really large cypress tanks for aging but they carbon filter afterwards also.
Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.
