      It can leach, but there is not supposed to be enough lead in brass to make it toxic.  Just wanted everyone to know that there is lead in brass.  Just like they add mercury to flu shots, figure that one out.

      Ricky, Common distiller wisdom has it that if your brass is of new manufacture, and not from China, it will not contain lead and will be safe to distill through.
