    Greetings all. I was hoping to get some help from FC. I want to do a qwiso style extraction. However I can only get 75% iso which is no good. But I have 95% ethyl alcohol. Can I use it? Is it safe and will it work? I have used it for a grinder reclaim and it worked. It evaporated very quickly. Anyway thanks in advance

    yes. works great.
    there are threads about it that i am posted in and following but i can't get the search functions of this forum to work.

    try some of these search terms.
    everclear, polish spirits, winterize, ethano, QWET
    i'm in the threads but can't find any of them.


    edit added:
    i found one i'm not following or posted into. Considering QWET - School me! but can't find threads i follow unless there are new posts into them. wtf?

    95% and not 95 PROOF right? 95 proof would be about 47.5% alcohol by volume.
