Carbon filtering tails


Recommended Posts

Anyone carbon filtering their tails before re-distilling them to get neutral? 

I read somewhere that carbon really cleans up tails nicely, so I took some really smelly barley tails at 100 proof and mixed in some used carbon and voilla - cleaned the tails right up.  Now I have several gallons of black spirit.  Could I re-distill this black spirit as is, or will it somehow release some of the crap that was bonded to the carbon?  There aren't any chunks per se, but the liquid is opaque.  I don't want to run it through my polishing filter because it is currently in use.

Otherwise, I will just wait until my carbon filter is about to be changed and then run the tails through it before re-distilling them.
