That would look cool, and be complicated.

design, not the valved design. It gave me my first taste of how it worked, but
didn't work all that well. The valved design (
http://www.moonshine-still.com/page16.htm ) confused me at first, but after
doing it for a while and revisiting various designs it started to make sense.
Then again, I'm a little slow sometimes :) Even so, it took more time to
gather all the parts than to construct.

overwhelmed me at first. Over time I was able to see where the concepts
overlapped and where there were differences. It also started coming clear
where differences did and did not mean better or worse. Vague, I know, but it
just takes some time and asking questions here and there.

facilities to be able to make it. I wanna play at Pint's place one day :)
However, working stainless requires a whole new level of tools and materials to
work than copper. That may or may not be a consideration for you.
- always tinkering

Though if done well, it would rock! One day, when I grow up, I'll make one
too! I need to trim down my hobbies.
-too much going on sometimes
- Good sites.All will produce a very nice percentage.Only for complexity i would build a duble headed valved reflux still. Wich will do very well i think.My only problem is the parts.they are willing to sell if i give my company name.wich i dont have and on the scrapheap they are rarly availble. and have to be lucky to get a lenght.The only thing i could order right away were the 6mm diameter copper lines wich are used for airconditioning systems. sold by 6 meters.So im tight to 13 15 and 22 mm pipes. sold by meters.The only good thing about that are the wrench fittings.rings for it are sold seperatly so cleaning wont be a big problem.Ive just bought an 1 meter lenght and a bag of stainless steel scrubbers 8.5 kilo grams of granulated sugar and 1 turbo yeast comming up.First thing to do is reknowing the still.Things changed so wath will it doHave bin carefully reading homedistiller.orgAnd on my stove a meter would bring me to about 90~92% end result.So now the task is to get the taste to ithave bin cooking corn so thats a good back up for the taste in the sugar mash.Hope things will work out.Thanks Greetz,JD----- Original Message -----From: jamesonbeam1Sent: Tuesday, September 04, 2007 3:21 PMSubject: [Distillers] Re: Ideas
