soldered joints. Low pH liquid is more apt to leach salts than The
vapor won't leach lead, but the liquid will. While I would not use
lead based solder in any of my still joints, I would be PARTICULARLY
careful about using it beyond the column where condensation would
occur and liquid would be in contact with soldered joints.
Solder is cheap. If you're building a still why take the risk of
using lead based solder?
