(Some Guy)   A distillery in Portland makes hand sanitizer out of batch leavings and giving it away for free. Whiskey, gin, bourbon - is there anything it can't do?   (hot967.fm) divider line

They sure couldn't sell it, heck they can't legally call it hand sanitizer.

Is hand sanitizer really any better than just washing your hands thoroughly and regularly with soap?  I mean, like we all should be doing anyway.

/Don't touch your eyes and wash your hands before you eat.

According to the CDC, no.  Just use soap.  Sanitizer is for those times when you don't have soap/water readily available.

distillation heads and tails should be fine for hand sanitizer

The first product out of any alcohol distillation process is heavy on the methanol, which makes an even better disinfectant than ethanol.

Whiskey, gin and bourbon can't be rum, tequila or brandy, subby. That's what it can't do.

Along with acetone and other poisonous substances.

When I toured one of the local craft distilleries they told me the 'tails' aren't much good, either. A little too much of either heads or tails ensures a nasty hangover, too.

No, actually washing your hands properly is far, far better.

Hand sanitizer kills germs, washing removes germs.

When we run a ten gallon batch of mash to yeild a gallon of 'shine. The first half pint of the run gets tossed out because it has methanol in it, especially if youve fermented fruit in your mash. The tail end of the run too. Take the specific gravity of the mash before and after fermentation, subtract the difference and that gives you an idea of what the yield will be...

I guess that's one way to dispose of your hazardous waste.
