Easy Build Moonshine Still




What do you think about this video?

shizzlefoot: You've created a monster (me). The first video I watched regarding home distillation was one of yours. So I built myself a simple 7 gal pot still. I made a few runs with great results including the rice and rum recipes. Then I started watching other videos, learning about BokaBobs and liquid management, cooling mgmt and vapor mgmt stills. So after scouring craigslist for 2" copper pipe and a stainless keg and several runs to bLowes, I now have a 2"x 48" reflux/vapor mgmt still with two condensers and a parrot. I'm starting to wonder if maybe there's a recovery program for obsessive home distillers. I sure hope so. Otherwise I'm screwed. Lol

keith arnold: Dont ever make mooshine without knowing about throwing away the deadly part of the run,,,,, During the distillation process methanol is concentrated at the start of the run because it has a lower boiling point than ethanol and water. The boiling point of methanol is approximately 148 degrees farenheit, which is quite a bit lower than ethanol (the good stuff). This means that methanol (148F boiling temp) will start to boil before the ethanol (174F boiling temp). This is why moonshiners always throw out the first bit of shine they produce from each run.... Drinking the Methanol can kill you.....or make you go blind.... If anything is produced by the still before temperature reaches 174 degrees, it's methanol. Discard it. Again, methanol boils at a lower temperature than ethanol and will concentrate at the beginning of distillation.... How much initial product to discard: 1 gallon batch - discard the first 2/3 of a shot glass 5 gallon batch - discard the first 1/3 of a pint jar 10 gallon batch - discard the first 3/4 of a pint jar Regardless of still temp, it's a good idea to always follow this rule of thumb. Methanol or not, the first stuff to come off the still tastes and smells like rubbing alcohol. It's by far the worst stuff in the entire run and it isn't going to impress anyone.

Robert Kelly: Your coil does go up. For someone who puts so much emphasis on that you should try looking at it

OfficialDjMetroid: Where can I get a coil?

A Ivanovas: how long temperature must be 90-95 degrees 

SpockMcoy Issmart: Can you make alcohol to burn, like in lamps? I'm not interested in killing myself drinking poison, but would be interested in making fuel. thanks!

World's End: Easy Build Moonshine Still...These booze recipes are aimed at off gridders but anyone looking to save few quid then on u go...

Dan Clark: is there any way you can demonstrate how to make sugar whiskey and proper way to proof. I would like to learn all I can from you. 

Halach Osiris León Casillas: 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.....

ARCSTREAMS: ohh ok yours is the same coil and lenght like mine ,great great because it only cost me about 10 bucks ,they had a refrigeration kit with 15 feet in it as well as some other fittings and some kind of saddle hose tap fitting that i dont need but it was 25 bucks,,glad i got the other deal with seperate fitting cost me about 12 bucks seing how yours is also the same i know i dont need longer than 10 feet now,,what did you use to warp your coil around?

Tyler Warner: So this is 1/4" pipe for the coil

Ohio Trucker Mr. Wright: By the way i love all your videos..watched tgem several times.

Drew b: Do u know what size the fitting was by chance? 

Lucien Macrose: With the smell of that vinigar, nobody will even notice the smell of the shine cooking off! 

tantaluss68: can we please talk about the fitting some more

Dr Greg Tyree: Great video!! One question??? Isn't the worm a bit close to the flames from the stove? Is there any chance this could cause a fire?? Thank you..... Happy New Year!!

Joseph Reinbold: u have to use stainless or copper pot or u can injure yourself wow and you said you are tired of the dumb asses putting up videos of doing things wrong. well welcome to your own list dumb ass

Moto Louk: Thanks for putting this video together man! Questions for you - should shine coming out of the worm be warm or cold?

Ohio Trucker Mr. Wright: I'm a total beginner so I'm trying the vodka like you suggested question is I'm using a half a gallon of vodka will I get a half a gallon of vodka back out or will there be a lot less how do I know when it's all gone out of my pot

84montecarlonazi: Did u flare the copper line yourself

Jeremiah Johnson: u don't need to "break in" the rubber gasket, only need to keep it oiled and it'll last long time 

ARCSTREAMS: hello again buddy,,listen i am in the process of making a still,already have a psi cooker and just bought some 1/4" od copper coil about 10 feet i hope thats enough,,how long was yours? also i got the compression fitting and just like yours once you tighten it ,the nut part stays on the tube thx to an internal ring and its got some internal flare post you slip into it but i see you dont bother using it once you compressed the nut on your tube,,there are other compression fitting that have that internal ring that compresses and does not attach to the tube but this one is better because the ring wont fall off everytime you take the coil off your pot ,,problem for me now has been trying to put the fitting on my psi lid ,,which i can show it to you on skype maybe you can help me out ,its much easier to show than explain whats going on,,think you got time we can set an appointment on either skype or yh or gmail?

Timothy Leary: your explanation is too long. though good its a little much.. just my opinion for your future videos.. thank you for the video

Mohammed Atwa: الله اى نور

ATCRyderX©: Great tutorial. Built the Still - Now how do I actually produce Moonshine?!?

kyle dantzler: Dis is illegal dont do it :/

Mike Kerns: Can i use a alumminum pressure cooker for this or no its a presto model 406

BigbadJoe Joe: Has anyone told you how annoying adverts and links to other videos are while your trying to watch something interesting. Had to turn it off, It was doing my tits in. Sorry. 

ARCSTREAMS: hmm so you didin't bother to seal up that pressure relief valve,,wont you lose some alcohol that way or the internal psi wont be that high i take it since you have to run it slow at about only 170 deg F 

keith arnold: for a better yield you could try using a thumper canister and a water cooled worm....with those you can hit proofs of 100+

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.

Bryson Raber: wcemichael where did u get your adapter coupler and your pressure fitting for a solderless connection to copper tubing at?

Houtzyboy Jr.: Distilled vinegar bottle is ironic 

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

mashersmasher: do you have tho throw out more by producing smaller batches? in another video someone had nearly a 4 gallon pot and discarded 50ml. would I only need to discard 10-15 mil with this design?

Matt Taylor: Why did my whole run come out milky? Nothing that came out was clear

Gary Lee: if I am going to use this idea for camping in order to make potable water, on a daily use, must I clean it with distilled vinegar? I am hunting a product that hardly needs any maintenance. except normal washing, think i ought to go stainless steel pot and line? 

Cliff Williams: Hey folks - I got some questions about the coil: First, is the pipe in the video 1/4" outside diameter or inside diameter? Really, I'd like to know the ideal width and length for the coil; especially for one hooked up to a 20 qt pressure cooker. Is longer better? is wider better? Thanks!

gunner5501: So i've tried to build a similar style still, after running vinegar threw like you say in the video to clean the condenser, it ruined the pressure seal on the lid, and after boiling the new gasket to "break it in" it was all kinds of out of shape and not sealing at all... just a FYI... the rubber seals on these cookers suck... any remedy's?

Pablo shucone: How can you tell when the foreshots ends and the body starts

Chase Henderson: my pressure cooker had a safety value and before i used it i cleaned it. i saw that lots of steam was coming out of it until it locked. what should i do

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

Jason Camacho: What size is that fitter

ARCSTREAMS: so your tired of ppl making a poisenous illegal product huh,,,on behalf of yt i thank you for showing us how to make safe illegal moonshine,,for demo purpous only of course,,wink wink 

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

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.

Charles Hall: I followed all your steps on mash making & other details. But I did not use enzymes I just boiled the corn meal till it was very soupy. If you could please give me any details on distilling or other thing I would very appreciate it. Awesome video btw

Carrie581: It can be dangerous. Best to start with cheap wine.

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?

John Heron: Mine is leaking lots of steam from the fitting what kind of tips and tricks would you recommend
