It is not known exactly when it was discovered, but it is thought that the old man discovered it by accident when testing the resulting liquid fermentation of fruits.
Alcohol ... Commonly used this word to refer the ingredient found in drinks such as wine, beer or different liquors, but now know that there are different types and, therefore, has several uses.
Alcohol refers to a chemical compound containing carbon atoms, hydrogen and oxygen. Among the most common types are:
The methanol used in chemical processes for plastics, as well as a solvent for paint and varnish manufacture.
Ethanol or ethyl alcohol, is found in alcoholic beverages. Is produced by the fermentation of fruit, vegetables and berries. This type of alcohol has other uses, is an important chemical in the preparation of detergents, flavorings and fragrances ingredient.
The propanol is obtained from ethylene and a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide; is used for the production of substances such as resins. Furthermore, isopropanol is used to produce acetone, cosmetics, lotions and alcohol use at home to heal any wounds or disinfect anything.
Alcohol brings many social benefits because their use is not limited to being an ingredient in certain drinks. It´s an important part of medicine and industry. Did you know that it is also used as rocket fuel? Its importance is so great that without the alcohol, the man could never reach the moon and explore space.
Alcohol to be prepared with the Microdose is ethyl alcohol; the label must indicate that it is 96 degrees alcohol and that is no denatured; usually have a red label.
Is very important to use the correct alcohol as other alcohol (denatured or otherwise) can cause blindness in the patient.
By law, the sale of ethyl alcohol is prohibited in Mexico, can only be acquired for production processes (which is the case for the preparation of Microdose) and not sold to the general public premises (liquor stores, pharmacies, commercial markets, etc .). Nor can get bulk due to current regulations.
When we talk about alcohol we generally refer to ethanol or ethyl alcohol, as the fundamental constituent of alcoholic beverages. These are of two types:
Fermented beverage obtained by fermenting wort abundant sugars. We speak of cider, champagne, wine and beer. Alcohol content can range between 5 and 15 degrees.
Distilled beverage: are obtained by an artificial process, distilling a fermented beverage and increasing concentration of pure alcohol. This is the case of gin, rum, whiskey, vodka, anise, cognac, brandy, liqueurs and certain fruity snacks. Its alcohol content is usually between 17 and 45 degrees
There are no differences in alcohol present in various drinks, the only difference is in the degree of concentration of alcohol.
The degree of alcohol or alcohol content of a drink is indicated on the label and represents the concentration or percentage (%) of ethanol containing.
When we say that a wine has 12 degrees of alcohol, we mean that there in 1 liter of that wine 120 ml of pure alcohol or 12% alcohol.
"Degrees" means the alcohol content of distilled beverages and is the percentage of alcohol multiplied by two. For example:
50% = 100 degrees Alcohol
100% = 200 degrees Alcohol
It is not easy to verify the type of alcohol that we are using, you need to develop some chemical reagents tests to verify the type of alcohol.
So please, use extreme caution to obtain alcohol to prepare Microdose, tinctures, extracts and bases well worth it. The label should indicate it is ethyl alcohol and should verify the name and address of the manufacturer to ensure that we are selling the right alcohol.
As you know, you can also prepare Microdose with aguardiente puro de caña, so in case you are not sure which alcohol are getting, you can use the option of calculating the correct proportion.
