- Sorry, the plated scrubbies are a great way to mess up a still run. They turn to black muck pretty quickly.

Date: Friday, January 25, 2013, 5:24 PMThe pot and bowl is a fun one. :-) My version was a big tea kettle, my coil stuck through a cork in the spout. When you change packing try looking at a hardware store in the pest control department, they sell great copper mesh made to keep birds out. --- In Distillers@yahoogroups.com, "mrlovjoy" wrote: > Hi Boot. Planning on ss scrubbers first, cause that's what the store had. Sometime today I will be running my first experimental wash through a pot still consisting of a ss pot, a bowl on top, and 1/4 inch copper tubing/coil out the top of the bowl. Bare bones, to say the least. Later I plan on modular parts which I can swap out as I learn. I'll post what happens next.
