    Ken notes that the brita box tells us that the brita will reduce various elements which can cause
    ôlong term liver or kidney damage". Hooray, we all think.


    These guys are absolutely hilarious!

    VERY interesting. I am getting a Brita soon, not to make neutral alcohol more neutral, but to see if certain bourbons might benefit.

    The most interesting thing to me are the comments down below the experiment....for example one had a link to a company that sells activated charcoal for use in home distilling...the web site itself cracked me up...they had women modeling the distilling equipment in a way which reminds me of the "biker babe" magazines...worth checking out... http://milehidistilling.com/

    There is a product called the Gray Kangaroo that is designed to do the exact same thing. It is similar to the Brita filter, but the makers claim its filter is better for improving alcohol.

    I tried the Brita on average quality vodka and found no improvement. I did find some marginal effect on whisky, it lightened the body but didn't really change the taste. I thought maybe a more, "industrial quality" filter would work better, and maybe this other system is the answer.
