      Could you not have given us an inkling of what you are proposing or kept quiet until then?

      I just wanted everyone to know that I had an idea for a new still. Come to find out my idea is not new, and it is currently being used for something else.

      My challenge will be to adapt its use for removing alcohol from water. If it can be adapted to remove alcohol from water, we should be able to process our wash in 1/10 th of the time we currently spend watching over our stills. If it can be made to work, I will save me at least 4 hours attending my 2.5 gal pot still. 50 gal wash should not take longer than 2 hrs from start to finish. If it can be made to work, I will prove all of my drawings and test results for your examination and possible future use on distiller.

      I know the process works, but at what temperature setting will it work best? It will process wash or wort so fast that it will be nearly impossible to do proper cuts, or to discard Methanol.

      My challenge will be to figure out how to remove Methanol, heads, hearts, and tails as fast as it strips alcohol from wash or wort.
