Thx everyone.Yep , mistakes are part of learning.
S'all good tho.
From all appearances , Anhydrous Ethanol is a drop-in replacement for Isopropanol...it's a little 'harsher' on the 'materials compatability' area , a little bit more flammable , but allround it should be no problem.It's thinner than Iso when cold , and it's MP is -112 C ...
A quick note about using booze (Ethanol).
While yes , I could run pure (un-denatured) anhydrous alcohol that you could drink , I'll be doing my best to use undrinkable , "denatured ethanol " , and here's why : if you can drink it it's taxed very heavily.Might double the cost.
The important thing is that , whatever they add to denature it (usually methanol) has to be non-conducting as well.
I have hunted down Canada's Industrial Alcohol leader :
They will have an email from me waiting for them monday morn.
