      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.

      well, i've learned that mistakes are often more valuable in the long
      run than successes...so i get equal pleasure from both.

      best... (snip) is bad engineering, sloppy work and guessing if it is
      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...

      that half of the twisted fun of making liquor is trial and error on
      the part of the designer/operator/taste-tester. i've only been doing

      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
      people.
