Re: How to attach a column to an aluminum milk can?
- Well Jim,
The drain just screws on - you dont need to solder it or anything -
but to make it really air tight, what I use is that non-hardening
plumbers putty with no hazardous materials in it. Also, you can use
the teflon plumbers tape if theres any leaks (this is assuming that
you want it to be detatchable).
Note: if you use a copper column, you can use aluminum for a boiler
for final runs, and not just for the low wine runs. Sherman (Pint O
Shine) has used aluminum pressure cookers for years.
