- To all the newbies out there.
Be aware of the dangers of this hobby. Mainly the lack of information, before you start to make a still or distill alcohol. READ everything you can from the two best sites on the net (Tonys and Harrys) Then re-read it! and then read it again.
Understand what you are about to do.
Alcohol production in the 90% range is extremely explosive, if you use propane as a heat source, fire is a distinct possibility. The consumption of 90% can cause death at that concentration. Always dilute to the 40-50% range.
