William Gruff: The little ring on the copper pipe is called an 'olive'.
PORKY B: no thump tank?
McCrackenSmashin&HoeBusterLLC: 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?
patman0250: what is the pressure cooker made of ? aluminum or stainless steel ?
trailkeeper: Good for making pure distilled water, all the thumbs down, I guess they
don't like pure clean water.
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
joe b: thanks for the answers
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
THEKOONDOGSHOW: I chug moonshine
Frank Chilelli: I've seen ten times better stills on youtube than this one.
Question Mark Magic ?: How many jars u makin with this
Daz Wickham: Can we make ethanol this way also
Walt Lars: Tip for easy bending the copper coils. This come from engineer775 here on
Youtube fill copper tube with water leave ends open for expansion put
copper tubeing in freezer allow water to freeze then slowly wrap copper
tubeing around a metal pipe of tube the size of coils you want let water
thaw and drain out perfectly round coils with no kinks
Philip Lester: I have to admit, your still is so much better than people throwing
something together and calling it a still
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
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.
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
ElGatoLoco698: Anyone else think the annotations were a little obsessive?
Darren Lewis: wait and your doing this legally?
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
kabayo horse: Thanks for the vid, you made a good still sir. i'll try to make this kind
of still, but I'ma use it to make plant essential oils.
There shouldn't be any difference right?
Lucas Bivens: Ok how many gallons is that bucket for the worm?
Peter Couture: Though I appreciate all the hard work you've put into your videos and
research, two things about this setup are risky. The first being as said
below aluminum is not a good choice for a still since methanol reacts to
it. The second being how close the worm or coil is to the burner.
Especially with a gas stove, you're risking an explosion or fire with it
being so close. The spout should be below the level of the burner in stove
setups encase someone were to knock the collector over high proof spirits
or worse the methanol could ignite.
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
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?
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.
muzicmaneadgbe: your videos about distilling product are probably the best i'v seen in a
while thanks for sharing
Jay John: you could add nice little float switch to a buzzer
or to turn off the electric cooker its on
Nosey Jerks: God damn, spent more time closing those freaking links than I did watching
Ed McQuirt: Will this still work with electric stoves as well as gas?
gary rimington: you are a horrible narrator. i wanted to shoot myself listening to you
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 .
masked prepper: :)
BRANDAN LAMBETH: You are whooping my ass, stop talking bout those stupid fittings nobody
cares. I stopped watching 30 seconds into it.
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?
NJCountryForever: How do u bend the coil perfect
Philip Bailey: brill - pressure cookers are on way back in Britain, so cool
Krystofer Dixon: Sound yiu put uce or cokd wTer in the canister with the coil
joohop: good man ! what about using clear plastic tubing for the coil ?
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
Justin Denomme: hey im just wondering what kind of brass fittings thoughs are? and did you
use a flare tool aswell?
Us3rX100: Haters are going to hate. I say carry on good sir.
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..
Nick Pascale: How much of the first run do you throw out? I just got enough money to
johnnyrulz09: you are kind of a backwwods badass =) haha
Christopher Morris: I sure don't want to make "posionous" liquor either, so thanks for the
