      thank you Bob for writing back and I hope your having a happy new year, but I'm not enterested in making a little bit.I run a 15 gallon still for U have a lot ofwine that got viril acid and stopped fermenting at about 12% and 14% was what I was going for so the wine is to sweet .I'm going to distill the batch and get my 95% then I'm going to make absinthe.So my original question is by putting to kegs together one inside the other and welding them and then having a drip sysem to drip water inthe keg with heat at the bottom to produce steam do I need a little pressure in it about 10 lbs or less or leave a hole for the steam to come out or is it better to just fill the keg with water and just boil it?I was told that steaming is the best way.I know kegs can take about 120 lbs of pressure but I really don't want to or feel I nedd that much pressure if any at all.my still is in photos under snaggletooth. --- In new_distillers@yahoogroups.com, "tgfoitwoods" <zymurgybob@...> wrote:
