Bryson Raber: wcemichael where did u get your adapter coupler and your pressure fitting
for a solderless connection to copper tubing at?
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.
Clyde D'souza: Can you tell me how to distill methanol?
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
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?
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?
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.
The World's End: Prepare: Easy Build Moonshine Still...These booze recipes are aimed at off gridders
but anyone looking to save few quid then on u go...
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?
indicoltsfan1212: What are the parts called that are used to connect the copper tubing to the
William Gruff: The little ring on the copper pipe is called an 'olive'.
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
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?
agnewrt: Is the final product mostly pure ethanol, or is some of the taste of the
mash imparted as well?
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
Chris Parsons: Easy Build Moonshine Still...These booze recipes are aimed at off gridders
but anyone looking to save few quid then on u go...
Carrie581: It can be dangerous. Best to start with cheap wine.
Frank Chilelli: I've seen ten times better stills on youtube than this one.
Question Mark Magic ?: How many jars u makin with this
Daz Wickham: Can we make ethanol this way also
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
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
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?
gary rimington: you are a horrible narrator. i wanted to shoot myself listening to you
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
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
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
David Homealone: Sorry meant coil.
joohop: good man ! what about using clear plastic tubing for the coil ?
nstahlable: im not really interested in the moonshine. I just want a way to make cheap
patman0250: what is the pressure cooker made of ? aluminum or stainless steel ?
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
joe b: thanks for the answers
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.
PORKY B: no thump tank?
ElGatoLoco698: Anyone else think the annotations were a little obsessive?
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.
MessingWithScience: And this does work correct? I would like to try this alot because I think
since I live in the south I think it's my duty to keep on older ways. At
the very least makin a lil to drink upon special occasions. Thanks for the
rev9fan1: What about using an aluminum pressure cooker and copper tube?
Mike Sharp: Dude. Get to your points faster. Don't repeat them ten times. Short and to
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?
Peter Couture: Though I appreciate all the hard work you've put into your videos and
research, two things about this setup are risky. The first being as said
below aluminum is not a good choice for a still since methanol reacts to
it. The second being how close the worm or coil is to the burner.
Especially with a gas stove, you're risking an explosion or fire with it
being so close. The spout should be below the level of the burner in stove
setups encase someone were to knock the collector over high proof spirits
or worse the methanol could ignite.
Chase Le grange: can you do this
Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
