Next attempt, duble AC/PVPP - Celite,
Clearly improving…


I will use the cakes for other really bad extracts…

Wich bentonite are you using ??
And what type if A-C ?
Is it hardwood ??

30% Activity PVPP, Calcium Sodic Activated Bentonite, and Selective Activated Carbon… No more info…

My Celite, and would like to try also:

Perlite Filtration Aid

But need to verify if compatible…

Calcium Sodic bentonite interesting

Wich brand
