How To Clarify Whiskey &c

Take any vessel of convenient size, take one end out and make it clean,

by scalding or otherwise; bore the bottom full of holes, a quarter of an

inch in diameter--lay thereon three folds of flannel, over which spread

ground maple charcoal and burnt brick-dust, made to the consistence of

mortar, with whiskey, about two inches thick, pour your whiskey or

brandy thereon, and let it filter thro' the charcoal, flannel, &c. after

which you will find the spirit to have scarcely any taste or smell of

whiskey.--Elevate the filtering cask so as to leave room to place a

vessel to receive the spirit under it.
