Spruce pine "Everclear" batch. TS replacement.

Hello. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the new "Everclear" batch from Spruce Pine? I called to order there 87 Texas Sand but was told they have replaced that formula with a new "clearer" batch. I ordered it because,hell, its Spruce Pine batch so I trust it.

Just curious if anyone has any experience or knowledge that could be shared.

Thanks

The results. I get to see this stuff. While I won't go into sourcing, I will say that the processing of the material was critical to the success. Greg and I were talking about this stuff almost a year ago. I'm not at liberty to say why it worked, but with some interesting technology it's great. I'll have my next pallet of it made this way and I'm already really happy with the clarity now.

Everything is available in snowflake. That's simply a question of the amount of water in the mix.

I'm not a sales rep. You need to ask Candy. For my batch, it's one ton and it's a better glass if that matters. Both are dead on 96. It does seem to me that the price is the same for the everclear as opposed to the texas sand.

Everclear is the new Texas sand, Pete. New sand. New name.
