  • Aloe Vera is not a cactus either - it is a member of the allium family (garlic / onion / leek etc). I doubt that it's sugar content is high enough to be able to effectively ferment & distill it. If you did choose to experiment, make sure you separate the inner gel from the skin as the skin contains some fairly nasty botanicals. Cheers Send instant messages to your online friends...

  • Hi All, There used to be a product made by Hiram Walker called TQ Hot - which they have now stopped making / distributing. Essentially it was a citrus, spice and chilli infused Gold tequila which was fantastic. As I recall it had some some texture / mouth feel to it also.

  • Stainless can be but easily with an oxy/acet torch, plasma cutter or any other high temp torch ... I've done it, it works. I used an arc welder on 200A to go through parts of some 304 sheet - just melts away - but leaves iron inclusions - which is bad - but if you clean up the edges, it's acceptable.
