RE: [new_distillers] Re: Question about still sales to all
I agree with that wholeheartly. However it is not much fun if that is not what you want!
If it wasn’t for the mistakes, I would never have learned.

right. I love when vapors surge from a badly sealed joint and I have
to joyfully disassemble my still and look for leaks. Especial
experience is when my reflux tower starts making gurgling sounds with
uneven pauses. My guests find it very amusing. I value those special
moments when I taste the product and find it acceptable - more often
I have to spew it back in the wash. Then it brings me double pleasure
triple distilling it over and over again. I made frineds with locat
firemen to whom I provide easy times tearing apart my tool shed when
I have occasional fire and everytime I promise them a bottle of booze
next time they are around. Of course afterwards I have to not only to
tinker with my newly developed still but also to rebuild my ol'wooden
shed. These are the most valuable aspects of my hobby of tinkering
wiht distilling apparatus of my own invention...

the fact that when someone sees my still and comments, i can
say "yeah, i pretty much designed the whole thing" of course, the
design may not be that different, but it's what i came up with, and i
love it (i even named it Madeline). there's always a group of
people, though, that would rather just buy a ready made
product...perhaps the key to marketing still designs is to find those
