Easy Build Moonshine Still




What do you think about this video?

Drew Olinger: I like that this still is cheap and easy to make. BUT you also said that you were tired of seeing people making crack pot stills and making poisonous liquor. You mentioned that the pot you used was aluminum. Isn't that a no-no for distilling? I thought aluminum pots released toxins into the alcohol.

Mmsok Ggg: simply just do the freeze destilling put the thing in the freezer the water will freeze and the alchol will stay as liquid

Che Marshall: Go ahead and put it on the stove. And make sure you do it in the dark with all the lights off so you're wife doesn't catch you.

Patrick Himebaugh: I like the Condenser part the most out of this set up, at first, before I watched this vid, I thought Wow very cleaver.. because I thought the copper coils were in a block of Ice. I've seen pumps and Ice water, and just plain Ice water.. what I got out of this design was that you can actually fill up the container where the copper coil is at and freeze the water over night. I would think the block of ice would last longer to make more runs than to keep refilling with Ice water. 

cbiskit31: Am I wrong or does stainless steel have a possibility of contaminating the liquor, that's why the old ones were made out of copper?

Clyde D'souza: Can you tell me how to distill methanol?

indicoltsfan1212: What are the parts called that are used to connect the copper tubing to the pressure cooker? 

David Homealone: I find all your videos very informative so many thanks. I'm a newbie so my question is, does the could need to be elevated or was that just to fit your particular pipe set up? Thanks

schilling399: I like the first comment you have in the video about being tired of watching people throw something together and calling it a still. This video is pretty much a perfect example of that very comment. If you can get some sort of pure ethanol out of it then you are doing just fine. I have a still made out of an old SS 15.5 gallon keg and it is also just some stuff thrown together to make a still. But it works.

Paul J Erickson: Dude, your stovetop is gross! A+ for set-up, D- for workstation cleanliness.

Mark M: First of all, I wanted to thank you. This is an excellent way to easily make a cheap still. I'm working on a modification of this design right now. Second, for all the idiots out there - just shut up already. Regarding the aluminum, you put way more on your body everyday in your deodorant than you could ever get from this still - assuming of course that the metal particles magically disobey the laws of physics and evaporate (they don't). As far as the design is concerned, a quick Google search will show plenty of stills where the output is close to the flame. Unless you're an idiot and mix the two, nothing will ever happen. TL;DR - idiots shouldn't make alcohol.

Linda Wheeler: Hi Michael, Is there any reason I can't use this still to distill water? Can I put dirty water in the lower pot and have it distill as clean water, as so many expensive pro units do? Or would I need to make modifications? Thanks! Linda

richmondhillsangat: Dangerous Setup: Alcohol dripping is dangerously close to firestove. Keeping the condenser unit far away at least 5 feet away would be safe.the vapour s can also ignite.

chris spence: i want my shine to run 140 proof what could i do to make it run higher proofs than what you are yeilding

agnewrt: Is the final product mostly pure ethanol, or is some of the taste of the mash imparted as well?

Frank Chilelli: I've seen ten times better stills on youtube than this one.

Question Mark Magic ?: How many jars u makin with this

Mosinlogan: Ok... This is the best one and the most genius idea I've seen on YouTube. Thank you. I will be looking for a pressure cooker right now. 

Daz Wickham: Can we make ethanol this way also

kabayo horse: Thanks for the vid, you made a good still sir. i'll try to make this kind of still, but I'ma use it to make plant essential oils. There shouldn't be any difference right? 

William Gruff: The little ring on the copper pipe is called an 'olive'.

gary rimington: you are a horrible narrator. i wanted to shoot myself listening to you repeat yourself

Colhoon: Great simple video. intend to make one like this for ouzo runs with herbs in the pot from a pure spirit solution diluted down to 40% or less. for aluminium haters, do some research, plenty do this with no flavour carry through. my grannys in good health at 92 .. aluminium pots, deal with it.

Dylan Johnson: i use this same still and works great i make mine for personal use so this still works great not expensive and works great

Hoshi Wakefield: Could you please tell me what I can use to clean the brand new coil after making ?. I'm refering the oils and agents that still remain on brand new copper pipe. Thankyou very much Sir.

David Homealone: Sorry meant coil. Thanks

joohop: good man ! what about using clear plastic tubing for the coil ?

Ricky Ricardo: what are ya retarded??? DON'T BE TELLING PPL TO MAKE THIS PIECE OF crap OUT OF ALUMINUM!!! NOW GET THE freak OFF OF YOUTUBE

nstahlable: im not really interested in the moonshine. I just want a way to make cheap fuel

joe b: I have two main questions and I do think I know something about the distillation process but my questions are this: would a wine mixture 12%,, a beer mixture6%,, sugar water mixture with corn meal,, would the distillate(shine) all taste the same? during the hearts part of the distillation? the size of the copper vapor exit,, does the length that the vapor has to climb affect the %( 3 inch rise 120 poof, 6 inch rise 135proof),, along with that question goes copper diameter,, would 1/2 inch be better than 3/8s,, and I am talking only on a little set up like what you have) I don't know these two answers I think I have just about everything else knowledge wise down

THEKOONDOGSHOW: I chug moonshine

Walt Lars: Tip for easy bending the copper coils. This come from engineer775 here on Youtube fill copper tube with water leave ends open for expansion put copper tubeing in freezer allow water to freeze then slowly wrap copper tubeing around a metal pipe of tube the size of coils you want let water thaw and drain out perfectly round coils with no kinks 

Philip Lester: I have to admit, your still is so much better than people throwing something together and calling it a still

rev9fan1: What about using an aluminum pressure cooker and copper tube?

cctrax: I have a Vasconia 4qt. Pressure cooker, do i replace both emergency steam releases or just one of them?

ElGatoLoco698: Anyone else think the annotations were a little obsessive?

Mike Sharp: Dude. Get to your points faster. Don't repeat them ten times. Short and to the point.

Julia Satterfield: My thoughts for this video is completely amateur, and absolutely a waste of time. The poster of this video uses an ALUMINUM pressure pot, which is an absolute NO-NO! If your going to make moonshine, atleast make it worth your time and effort- and do no try a stove-top setup. Instead, try using a stainless steel beer keg. You can find the video on how to relieve the pressure stem in a matter of seconds! Good luck

Justin Denomme: hey im just wondering what kind of brass fittings thoughs are? and did you use a flare tool aswell?

scott burnhan: We are getting 140 off similar set up keeps u warm in winter for sure

Diamond Jack.: I've already shared how to make your own easy still for your own hooch but for those who didn't catch it here it is again...A lot of pages have been taken down&replaced by less informative ones,,when it comes to brewing your own hooch(wines)that you need to distill into moonshine but go on Google&you'll find recipes there...I make my own tea&raisin wine but it'll take to long to sit&type out all instructions.....So find your own recipe...Personally my tea wine is again strong enough&doesn't really need distilled but if you enjoy a strong drink then here's how to make your own still...You can find plenty other methods on making stills on Google&YouTube.....

Chase Le grange: can you do this

sarmatiko: Good video, thanks! But I wonder, have you tried adding dephlegmator (made out of canned food glass jar with two in/out holes in tin cap) to the circuit between pressure cooker and spiral? In theory it should catch some nasty stuff and prevent splashes from cooker.

wcemichael: Where did you find this info?

wcemichael: Copper tubing can be bent with your bare hands. Just don't kink it. You can use a small closed end wrench to help in tight corners. Just bend it a little, move down 1/16 inch and repeat.

Mike Gold: LMAO you do what ever you like . You need to drink a bunch of this bullcrap you are making ....When you start shaking an pissing your self we will talk ...Hell run a car radiator for a condenser then tell me the lead didnt leach out in to your finished product LMAO

BRIENSTEIN: I have my coil with a 7/32 I.D. my Question is will that be big enough? (for the condenser) this video was very helpful

wcemichael: ????????

wcemichael: It's ok for a short term use, but if you making a choice on which is best, then just go for the stainless steel
