Re: [new_distillers] use of copper tuve
Momma loved those copper pots and pans, actually used them (not just hung them on hooks to be pretty. Of course that meant I had to clean the dang things.
and we'd use lemon and salt.
so I don't think it changed the copper chemically, but dampness could have left some clumps stuck inside and you wouldn't want any salt in your distillate. Since this is a new still, you should do a cleaning run anyway.Dear AllI have filled a 1/2" three meter long copper tube with salt powder to bend and make a coil. For nearly two months the salt filled copper tube is left idling. Has any adverse chemical reactions taken place and can I still use the copper to form a coil. I am still new to distilling. Can any member tell me whether it is good or bad to use this copper tube now.raymond
