TEMPORARY USE OF FOUR OTHER FORMULATIONS IN THE PRODUCTION OF FORMULA NO. 40

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

You are advised that because of the apparent continued shortage in the supply of brucine, and because of the current shortage in the supply of quassin, a Revenue Ruling has been issued, and will soon be published to authorize, effective January 1, 1966, the temporary use of four formulations in the production of specially denatured alcohol Formula No. 40. Two of the formulations were authorized by Revenue Ruling 65-177, and will be continued under the new Ruling. Revenue Ruling 65-177 will be superseded.

The additional formulations which will be limited to a six-month period 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)); or

(c) 1/4 gallon of tert.-butyl alcohol, and 1/16 avoirdupois ounce of denaturing grade benzyldiethyl (2:6 xylylcarbamoyl methyl) ammonium benzoate (Bitrex (THS-839)); or

(d) Three gallons of tert.-butyl alcohol.

Option (d) above will be permitted for use only in the manufacture of products to be packaged in pressurized containers.

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