      Hi...
      I just joined up and I am fairly new to distilling. I belong to the
      other distillers list as well and have learned quite a bit from those
      there.
      I am interested in pot stilling (but do not have one as yet). I have
      made schnapps on my stove top from some raspberry wine I made that, well
      I will just say, didn't nose well. The product was double stilled and
      actually turned out pretty good. I also have most of the soldering done
      for a reflux tower, but need to work on the boiling vessel; I plan to
      utilize a stainless steel quarter keg . What I need to figure out is how
      to use it for the dual purpose of still vessel as well as a mashing
      vessel for beer making. I've just got to get the details and engineering
      down, and then just find time to complete my project.

      Hi Mark Welcome aboard. I would be a little careful about using solder in your stainless jointing, some of the fluxes that are used can disolve and put poisons

        Hi Mark
        Welcome aboard.
        I would be a little careful about using solder in your stainless jointing,
        some of the fluxes that are used can disolve and put poisons in your alcohol
        we have found Tig Welding to be the most reliable.

          Hello Mark and welcome to the new list.
          Pot stills are very common and in some commercial operations are better
          than reflux stills. Although they will 'take over' a lot more of the
          flavour etc from a wash than the reflux type, you are still dealing with
          natural flavours. Because you have extracted your schnapps from the wash,
          a certain amount of the flavour will have been left behind.
          The stronger tasting liqueurs use the alcohol after it has been distilled
          and then has fruit, herbs etc soaked to extract the flavour.
          If you wish to increase the flavour of your schnapps adding a small amount
          of strawberry essence will help.
          Another thought, did you carbon treat your schnapps? That will have a
          baring on the finished product.
          Interested to hear of your progress as it happens.
