joe b: I have two main questions and I do think I know something about the
distillation process but my questions are this:
would a wine mixture 12%,, a beer mixture6%,, sugar water mixture with
corn meal,, would the distillate(shine) all taste the same? during the
hearts part of the distillation?
the size of the copper vapor exit,, does the length that the vapor has to
climb affect the %( 3 inch rise 120 poof, 6 inch rise 135proof),, along
with that question goes copper diameter,, would 1/2 inch be better than
3/8s,, and I am talking only on a little set up like what you have) I
don't know these two answers I think I have just about everything else
knowledge wise down
Ricky Ricardo: what are ya retarded??? DON'T BE TELLING PPL TO MAKE THIS PIECE OF crap
OUT OF ALUMINUM!!! NOW GET THE freak OFF OF YOUTUBE
patman0250: what is the pressure cooker made of ? aluminum or stainless steel ?
PORKY B: no thump tank?
RandomPerson428: And this does work correct? I would like to try this alot because I think
since I live in the south I think it's my duty to keep on older ways. At
the very least makin a lil to drink upon special occasions. Thanks for the
garrettthurman21: Have you actually run some "good stuff" through this just to make sure it
won't blow up?
trailkeeper: Good for making pure distilled water, all the thumbs down, I guess they
don't like pure clean water.
Darren Lewis: wait and your doing this legally?
Krystofer Dixon: Sound yiu put uce or cokd wTer in the canister with the coil
2gew: You have to have copper somewhere on a still! Weather it's the worm or the
cap. It takes toxins out of the liquor that can make you very sick or kill
travis tatasciore: uhh bad idea good for getting very ill from toxin... and possible
explosion... soooo how bout ya research this first and buy a real
system.... ya now could save your skin maby even your eyes ohh yea your
Andrew Silver: It is very unlikely that a pot still this small and a mash made from food
quality grain would create enough methanol to hurt you.
The reason that so many people went blind in the Prohibition era is that
they were drinking de-natured alcohol, ethyl alcohol that has wood alcohol
added to it to make it poisonous. That type of alcohol is not taxed at
consumption alcohol rates because it is poisonous.
Yeast kills negative pathogens because they compete for the same resources
but the pathogens die with small amounts of alcohol.
The alcohol is a perservative, and makes this sort of wine and distillation
fairly safe to ingest, particularly if the heads are discarded.
It is dangerous, however, to have an open flame anywhere near alcohol
vapor. Personally, I would use a hot plate in a well ventilated area with
no open flames. I also think a thermometer makes this process much safer as
The easiest way to improve this still would be to have a drain for the
worm's casing. Keep a slight flow of water, the cooler the better, over the
worm the whole time.
Ricky Rogers: kool I was worried about some of the fumes but figured I'd turn on the vent
fan and we have a window over the sink right beside the cooling coil and
sink sprayer...kool thanks
Lucas Bivens: Ok how many gallons is that bucket for the worm?
Nosey Jerks: God damn, spent more time closing those freaking links than I did watching
maxim edwards: if You want to get high as a kite,and get to hospital by the toxins in the
metal that reacts with the distillate in the pot(aluminium) then go.
CristinaMaeble1267: Hey I recently made my first batch and everything went good but I did
notice one odd thing. After I made it I stuck it in my freezer over night
and when I pulled it out and gave it a shake it appeared that it was"flash
freezing". About the top third to a half was like a really runny slushy.
Any thoughts as to why? Its fairly strong about 4 oz gets me a good buz
muzicmaneadgbe: your videos about distilling product are probably the best i'v seen in a
while thanks for sharing
Kyle mcmullen: How do you monitor and regulate the temp of the alcohol in the pot?
Andrew Reed: Can I use brass fittings for my copper tubing?
Jay John: you could add nice little float switch to a buzzer
or to turn off the electric cooker its on
Ed McQuirt: Will this still work with electric stoves as well as gas?
wacka2: tired of watching people throw together a still ?
Then makes one from an Aluminium pan .
Dear me ..dont you realise that it MUST be stainless steel .
Aluminium = POISON .
d+ must try harder .
BRANDAN LAMBETH: You are whooping my ass, stop talking bout those stupid fittings nobody
cares. I stopped watching 30 seconds into it.
masked prepper: :)
Edgar Franco: In order to clean it run vinegar threw it and then water before and after
using the still or just before? Meaning after I run the mash threw it ...is
it okay to be put away or do u rinse it out?
Us3rX100: Haters are going to hate. I say carry on good sir.
NJCountryForever: How do u bend the coil perfect
Philip Bailey: brill - pressure cookers are on way back in Britain, so cool
Luis aviles: I am going go make me son moonshine ha ha ha ha
Mike Sharp: Dude. Get to your points faster. Don't repeat them ten times. Short and to
Christopher Morris: I sure don't want to make "posionous" liquor either, so thanks for the
VoodooIrons: You forget to tell people what temps to cook at and I never heard you say
anything about tossing out the heads and tails. you know the poison parts
that no one should be drinking.. with out that information your teaching
people how to poison themselves. good job..
Clayton Berg: Subscribed for the mountain of info you have displayed. Good stuff.
johnnyrulz09: you are kind of a backwwods badass =) haha
Nick Pascale: How much of the first run do you throw out? I just got enough money to
brab arab: how do we defeat Google it seems bob might need help... how can it be
defeated can anyone answer?????
Lisa Crawford: I'm sorry this is a lot of talking and not a real good safe way to make
from no thermometer to using aluminum amoung other issues it should not be
used.. sorry guy nothing personal
BagFullOfBalls: Whats a wrench? Im not taking the piss, im from australia. Im assuming it
what we call a shifter!
Lionel Dausa: first 4 minutes is useless
Chris Macy: You said run vinegar through it to clean it. Won't the hot copper melt the
plastic worm container?
TheLeathemm: The the little you mentioned on the end of the pipe that the top of the
pressure fitting screws down against is called an olive. For Rhodes who
wcemichael: You'll just have to check my other videos for ways to make mashes and
ashleigh stoffregen: It's been years since I've moonshined. This seems like an easy way to brew,
cause I'm used to using the huge 8 Gallon jugs and such. Now with your
mash, what all did you use? I know you need active yeast and such...
wcemichael: Yes, and yes. The source of alcohol you're distilling does affect the taste.
sarmatiko: Good video, thanks! But I wonder, have you tried adding dephlegmator (made
out of canned food glass jar with two in/out holes in tin cap) to the
circuit between pressure cooker and spiral? In theory it should catch some
nasty stuff and prevent splashes from cooker.
Taltunran: hm gas stove so close to alcohole vapor could be exiting
MrEvilpeopledotco: I can honestly tell you, you have never made any liquor with this set up.
First the steam coming out would melt that plastic crap with the line
touching it....Secondly you have no drain hole in it to replenish with cool
water....Thirdly if you are not cooling your worm then you are wasting 10
times more than you are getting to keep..... Quit wasting space and
everyone's time with your bullcrap.
