OH LAWD JASUS: Ummm what is wrong with what he did? He said to throw out the crap that comes out before it reaches 175, he used proper precautions and all that good crap. I have been making liquor with almost this exact method for years and it all turned out very good. I have even won a contest with my alcohol.
Johnny Needles: Here are some hints to make our design work ... first of all, no rubber stoppers. use compression fitings.use a biscuit seal buy 6 or so 1" clamps instead o 3 vice grips.use 1/4" inch copper tubing not 3/8", although it doesn't look like 3/8" to me! and have more height commng off the pot before you descend into he worm the coil has to be all downhill, no bad bends. have a valve on your coil and drill another with a valve. that way you can purge air with the coil closed and once its purged, drop the temp and close the bleeder without spitting mash through the coil...... You also need to RUN A FAN! ventilation!!
Piano Man42: what exactly is that sealant used? It was never mentioned. Is it Gasket seal from the auto zone for car thermostats? The crap that goes in a cauling gun and seals windows? What the freak is the product name at the store?
Graham Bate: Gr8 video cob
tony berg: Everything you've done is how "not" to run a proper still,you got a 12 quart and got only how much out of it?Your setup is looser than a Saigon whore
Tom Schmal: Cool. Good idea sealing with vice clamps.
chris cahill: go learn something about running a still before telling people miss information i hav been running a still for years i have given old ones to friends etc also have made one similar to this but way different with safety in mind anyway when i get that one to me i think ill do a vid showing what you have done wrong
skeptic2apoint: Lol. I would not even drink water out of that thing!
Lukedawg Dangle: I would most definitely rethink your design before you go and try to make a batch with that setup. You're moving in the right direction but needs more work and thought put into it thats for sure. Thumbs up for the effort brother!
