Re: Where can I buy a still?
- That still drinking was taking people's money and not shipping their
stills. Do a search in here and distillers and you'll find
discussion about this.
If I were in market for a still I'd get amphora's PDA-1 with column
extension. If I had loads of money I'd get the PDA-2 ;)
Unfortunately most of the design for sale are 10-25 years old and
the performance is nowhere near todays stills.
