    Mileage on activated carbon?

    Hi folks, I did search the forums for this, and found quite a bit of conversation about activated carbon, so my apologies if the answer is already in there and I just didn't find it... kindly point me to it. Otherwise, my question is about what kind of mileage we can expect per any certain volume of activated carbon. I know the rudimentary science behind activated carbon, and I know there is a tremendous variety of types, and results will vary by the amount of impurities in the spirit going through it... I also understand that its efficacy will decrease over a curve. But generally speaking, assuming professional quality stripped and fractioned vodka spirit, how many gallons (or liters, or whatever) can one expect to be effectively treated by say a cubic foot or so of granular, stone carbon? Just as a reference point. 10 gallons? 100 gallons? I know, there are lots of variables, but as a benchmark... is this number out there somewhere that came from someone's personal experience? These filters can go from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars... I'd really like to avoid over or under purchasing a system much as possible. Cheers, JP. Hammer Spring Distillers

    Activated Carbon

    Quick question, I realize that proper distillation, etc. means activated carbon is not required. However, I have tried using carbon and wetted my carbon and have noticed something that has me scratching my head. If I put in 100 proof in at one end using a system with 2 4ft, 4" diameter stainless tubes I get 60 proof out of the other end. Any ideas or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
