6 methods of purification of vodka from the smell:
1). Add 2-3 grams of powder of potassium permanganate in 3-liter jar of the finished product. To wait until fall deposits. To speed up the process enough to cover the jar, shake several times and put on 10-15 minutes in a water bath with a temperature of 50-70°C.
2). 1 liter of vodka add 8-10 grams of ordinary (food) soda, stir and leave for 20-30 minutes. Then stir again and leave for 10-12 hours. Then drain the top layer of the liquid and to remove the sediment at the bottom. Soda cleans well fusel oil, causing an unpleasant smell.
3). Stand the brew in the orris root of 12 days (100 grams of chopped plants to 3 liters of moonshine). This vintage recipe is unsuitable for urban residents, so as to find the root of the violets in the sale very difficult, but its efficiency is very high.

After the water will turn to ice, moonshine (remains liquid) to pour into another container. Repeat the process several times. The method is simple and cheap, requiring only a refrigerator.
In some villages large batches of brew purified by freezing all year round. For this purpose, the farmers build a special underground glaciers, where snow may remain until late autumn.
5). Re-distillation. Moonshine diluted with water to 15-20% and make re-distillation, separating the finished product into fractions. Method is labor-intensive, time-consuming, but most effective.
6. Cleaning charcoal. Need charcoal, obtained from birch (brand BAU-A, BAU-LV). Technology: coal, grind, wrap in several layers of cheesecloth. Using the resulting filter to skip the moonshine.
In this case, the activated charcoal from the pharmacy ineffective pills can only absorb the large molecules of fusel oil, and most contaminants pass freely.
