Easy Build Moonshine Still




What do you think about this video?

PORKY B: no thump tank?

trailkeeper: Good for making pure distilled water, all the thumbs down, I guess they don't like pure clean water.

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.

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

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

garrettthurman21: Have you actually run some "good stuff" through this just to make sure it won't blow up?

ThePatriotGamer2014: 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 video! -RP

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

patman0250: what is the pressure cooker made of ? aluminum or stainless steel ?

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

joe b: thanks for the answers

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

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

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.

Darren Lewis: wait and your doing this legally?

Daz Wickham: Can we make ethanol this way also

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

Ricky Rogers: wasn't sure about using mine on my gas stove,does yours do ok around the open flame ? thanks

Lucas Bivens: Ok how many gallons is that bucket for the worm? 

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.

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

Kyle Mcmullen: How do you monitor and regulate the temp of the alcohol in the pot?

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

Andrew Reed: Can I use brass fittings for my copper tubing?

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

Andrew Silver: It is very unlikely that a pot still this small and a mash made from food quality grain would create enough methanol to hurt you. The reason that so many people went blind in the Prohibition era is that they were drinking de-natured alcohol, ethyl alcohol that has wood alcohol added to it to make it poisonous. That type of alcohol is not taxed at consumption alcohol rates because it is poisonous. Yeast kills negative pathogens because they compete for the same resources but the pathogens die with small amounts of alcohol. The alcohol is a perservative, and makes this sort of wine and distillation fairly safe to ingest, particularly if the heads are discarded. It is dangerous, however, to have an open flame anywhere near alcohol vapor. Personally, I would use a hot plate in a well ventilated area with no open flames. I also think a thermometer makes this process much safer as well. The easiest way to improve this still would be to have a drain for the worm's casing. Keep a slight flow of water, the cooler the better, over the worm the whole time.

travis tatasciore: uhh bad idea good for getting very ill from toxin... and possible explosion... soooo how bout ya research this first and buy a real system.... ya now could save your skin maby even your eyes ohh yea your life TOO! 

Ed McQuirt: Will this still work with electric stoves as well as gas?

wacka2: tired of watching people throw together a still ? Then makes one from an Aluminium pan . Dear me ..dont you realise that it MUST be stainless steel . Aluminium = POISON . d+ must try harder .

Edgar Franco: In order to clean it run vinegar threw it and then water before and after using the still or just before? Meaning after I run the mash threw it ...is it okay to be put away or do u rinse it out? 

NJCountryForever: How do u bend the coil perfect 

Krystofer Dixon: Sound yiu put uce or cokd wTer in the canister with the coil

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

Us3rX100: Haters are going to hate. I say carry on good sir.

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

brab arab: how do we defeat Google it seems bob might need help... how can it be defeated can anyone answer?????

maxim edwards: if You want to get high as a kite,and get to hospital by the toxins in the metal that reacts with the distillate in the pot(aluminium) then go.

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? 

BagFullOfBalls: Whats a wrench? Im not taking the piss, im from australia. Im assuming it what we call a shifter!

Nick Pascale: How much of the first run do you throw out? I just got enough money to distill legally

BRANDAN LAMBETH: You are whooping my ass, stop talking bout those stupid fittings nobody cares. I stopped watching 30 seconds into it. 

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

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

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

VoodooIrons: You forget to tell people what temps to cook at and I never heard you say anything about tossing out the heads and tails. you know the poison parts that no one should be drinking.. with out that information your teaching people how to poison themselves. good job..

Lucas Bivens: Ok how many feet of copper did you coil? 

Lucas Bivens: What size copper is that for you worm? 1/4 in 1/2 in ? 

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

2gew: You have to have copper somewhere on a still! Weather it's the worm or the cap. It takes toxins out of the liquor that can make you very sick or kill you

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
