This is a good example of why we start small and build on the success.
You will not need 100 gals of water for a 100 gal fermentation. All that
sugar (between 200 - 300lbs of it) will take up considerable space even tho
it's dissolved in solution.
Start with reading as much as you can about fermentation first, then
still construction, still operation, fine points of the art, and then expand
into the true test - actual hands on doing of that which you have read. Keep
in mind that you can have a small boiler and a large one that your column can
bolt onto. You can have different types of stills that can bolt onto
different boilers. Start small so the mistakes (and there will be those) will
be less costly and wasteful.
When the atom was first split even those crazy scientists didn't start
with a bomb. Take your time learning and soon you'll be having a blast! umm,
watch those vapors...
