A 2 gallon Stove top rig would make a nice Gin Still. But a 12 gallon Copper pot rig would be a nice accomplishment. Either one really.

I am slowly coming to the conclusion that the "Simple Pot Stillers" here may well be onto something. Lately I dont have a whole lot of time for this wonderful hobby but I have gotten accustomed to drinking my own Spirits and have no intentions of going back to Store bought. An all day reflux run on the weekend just isnt in the cards these days. But I can carve out 3-4 hours on Sunday afternoon to run my pot still here and there. Triple X Sugar Spirit done right is as good as any in my opinion. Just rambling.
That X flow head with 2 feet of unpacked column under it makes for nice pot stillin too. Too many choices, so little time.
