- Rob, For the last maybe 7 or 8 years, all the still heads I've built used 2" (nominal, US) copper pipe, at least coming out of the boiler. I've used it on stills with boilers form 3 gallons to 16 gallons, and it's worked just fine. Look here for any kind of copper pipe fittings you can think of. There may be some difference in wall thickness for some copper pipe, but that shouldn't affect us at all.
