You've avoided the request, so maybe you could answer these questions:MashBag wrote: ↑Wed Aug 18, 2021 9:32 amThere was very little water used making the ethanol. Ethanol is an effective way of keeping your bottles vessels, hoses, tools & implements clean & safe.
If you fancy a roadtrip, you can come and audit for yourself. My empty bottles (& kegs) are sealed with a splash in each. You can dip them and test the %alc will be between 40 & 50%. As you can my 50/200 & 300 litre stainless tanks.
I have a colleague who is a trusted source, who has made a career and accrued a significant amount of air miles (remember them ) speeding up spirit bottling lines in spirit plants. It was his off the cuff comment years ago that started it.
He is reasonably local too, so I may be able to organise a meeting. My brewing records are also available for examination but they don't mention that I have been doing since 2006 - a significant field trial. They do show it has suffered no failures.
I have never had to dump a batch or a bottle.
Like I've said. There is no one way.
1. Do you use vodka or ethanol as a sanitiser? Please don't say ethanol if you mean the ethanol vodka contains.
2. If ethanol, at what percentage? 70%? 100%? Something else?
3. Who is your colleague, and can you please cite publications his work proving vodka is an effective sanitiser has been published in.
I have no interest in your records or heresay unless they have been published in a respected journal and peer reviewed.
