I found a copper still from NC Mtns. for sale
- Today I was in the mountains of North Carolina visiting some old
friends while on a business trip and stumbled across an old moonshine
still. The boiler is homemade of copper and silver soldered. It's
about 60 gallons but it's made more like a short barrell than the
type I've most often seen. It's shorter than a 55 gallon barrell and
fatter. It doesn't tapper off at the top it just has a 1 1/2" hole
that the lyne arm fits in and is sealed with flour dough, the coper
pipe or (lyne arm) comes up abput 6" then turns 90% degrees right it
is 10' feet long and connects to a condenser coil ( worm) mounted in
a 10 gallon steel bucket. the worm is made from 1/2" copper tubing.
It has a 2 water hose connections for inlet and outlet of colant
water. The man is asking $350.00 US for it. I am thinking thats not
to high and am thinking of buying it. I'd like some input. What do
yall think??? Is the price in the right range??? Thanks in advance.
