For those of ya’ll medical patients with limited funds or where big brother is protecting you from yourself by proscribing ethanol above 150 proof, here is a way to make your own 190 proof ethanol for extraction and formulation from scratch:
10.19 190 Proof Ethanol from scratch - GrayWolf's Lair The batch|320x500
Mixing 150 proof with tapioca will get it up to 190. Cheaper than mol sieves!
Can you explain this?
I’m guessing tapioca will only grab the water not ethanol?
I wrote about it a while back. It turns out tapioca is like cheapo mol sieve.
this interesting article today. Apparently tapioca pearls work nearly as well as molecular sieves for dehydrating ethanol. Cursorily looking around looks like you can get them wholesale for only $600/ton on import (not counting shipping, of course). Unlike my earlier thread about using cement this one you could actually get away with calling it food grade.
Thank you both for your contributions!

I especially liked the part explaining that the combo of dextrose and turbo yeast doesn’t produce methanol or ethyl acetate. Thanks for the knowledge
