Bad Vodka + Brita Filter= Kettle One (or you’re too drunk to care…)

With an adventurous sense of curiosity a few young men and a young woman turn to science to figure out if cheap vodka can be made better, through the process of filtration.  The scientific method was more or really, less followed in this trial to determine if bad booze could turn good. This site has all the procedures, data, results, and conclusions in an easy to follow format with amusing pictures and raw notes. Now, vodka filtration usually requires a complicated device such as the one in the picture above. The sheer beauty of this experiment is that the filtration was done with a simple filtering system available at local supermarkets and discount superstores for about $10-$15.

What? Hell, no! I’m buying McCormick’s vodka by the damn tub and making my own Grey Goose.

Hey liver, it’s ON.

Dude, tonight: three bottles of McCormick’s, two gallons of orange juice, four bags of Hot n’ Spicy pork rinds, and Logan’s Run, baby!

may this finally shut everyone up about the “taste” of vodka. if the difference is jet fuel or clean jet fuel, no wonder you have to dump v8 on it to make it good. although I will try this at home and maybe even w/ gin.

long live the alcohol w/ flavor… why hello whiskey

Sissy. Vodka rocks. plain and simple.

I prefer a little olive juice and heavily bruised.

I’m with you.  Why drink something that tastes like nothing but isn’t water?  Whiskey is where it’s at.

I’d be interested to see if this works with gin.  I don’t think it would.  Gin is basically vodka that had juniper berries and other stuff soaked in it, so I think the filters might remove the flavors.  You might try filtering vodka, then soaking your own gin spice mix.  You can buy juniper berries at World Market.

i, for one, prefer milk.

enjoy your poison, you under-developed sea-apes! I’ll spit my healthy saliva on your graves one day, mark my words!

Let me put it this way, Milk-boy:

You are welcome to your 100+ years of Strom Thurman-like abstinence. I for one will immensely enjoy my 65+ years of Sammy Davis-esque revelry and debauchery.

Milk you say? you my friend are chocked-full-of-crap.  steroids, animal antibiotics, animal and synthetic hormones, and a slew of other fun mind numbing chemicals.

but we all pick our poisons

14 Just Plain Bob November 19, 2004 at 3:29 pm

psh! you enjoy your liver diseases and brain-meltage… i’ll gladly accept antibiotics and synthetic hormones! i’m stronger than ever before, and have the milk-production capacity of TEN cows!

You’re discounting liquor’s charm-inducing power, and it’s ability to convey He-Man like strength and courage!

And the man boobs you have grown are one of the Great Wonders of the world.
