EXTENSION OF FOUR TEMPORARY FORMULATIONS FOR USE IN PRODUCTION OF FORMULA NO. 40

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

Since shortages in available supplies of brucine and quassin continue, you are advised that a Revenue Ruling will soon be issued to effect extension of the four temporary formulations authorized by Revenue Ruling 66-8 for production of specially denatured alcohol Formula No. 40. The six-month limitation on withdrawals of the temporary formulations is being eliminated so that a thorough study may be made of the need for such formulations. At completion of the study it is proposed to amend the regulations to provide for all needed permanent optional formulations in producing Formula No. 40.

The formulations, identical to those set out in Industry Circular 65-38, are reproduced below for your convenience.

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
