TEMPORARY USE OF SUCROSE OCTA-ACETATE IN FORMULA NO. 40

Proprietors of Distilled Spirits Plants, Users of Specially Denatured Alcohol, and others concerned:

This is to inform you that a Revenue Ruling has been issued and will soon be published which authorizes, effective July 1, 1965, the temporary use of two alternate formulations in the production of specially denatured alcohol, Formula No. 40. This action is being taken because of a critical shortage of brucine.

The additional formulations are as follows:

To each 100 gallons of alcohol add:

(a) One pound of sucrose octa-acetate and 1/4 gallon of tert.-butyl alcohol; or

(b) Two avoirdupois ounces of sucrose octa-acetate, 1/8 gallon of tert.-butyl alcohol, and 1/16 avoirdupois ounce of denaturing grade benzyldiethyl 2:6 xylylcarbamoyl methyl) ammonium benzoate Bitrex (THS-839)).

This authorization is limited to a six-month period.

Inquiries concerning this circular should refer to its number and be addressed to your Assistant Regional Commissioner, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax.
