ARCSTREAMS: hello again buddy,,listen i am in the process of making a still,already
have a psi cooker and just bought some 1/4" od copper coil about 10 feet i
hope thats enough,,how long was yours? also i got the compression fitting
and just like yours once you tighten it ,the nut part stays on the tube thx
to an internal ring and its got some internal flare post you slip into it
but i see you dont bother using it once you compressed the nut on your
tube,,there are other compression fitting that have that internal ring that
compresses and does not attach to the tube but this one is better because
the ring wont fall off everytime you take the coil off your pot ,,problem
for me now has been trying to put the fitting on my psi lid ,,which i can
show it to you on skype maybe you can help me out ,its much easier to show
than explain whats going on,,think you got time we can set an appointment
on either skype or yh or gmail?
ARCSTREAMS: ohh ok yours is the same coil and lenght like mine ,great great because it
only cost me about 10 bucks ,they had a refrigeration kit with 15 feet in
it as well as some other fittings and some kind of saddle hose tap fitting
that i dont need but it was 25 bucks,,glad i got the other deal with
seperate fitting cost me about 12 bucks seing how yours is also the same i
know i dont need longer than 10 feet now,,what did you use to warp your
ATCRyderX©: Great tutorial. Built the Still - Now how do I actually produce
ARCSTREAMS: hmm so you didin't bother to seal up that pressure relief valve,,wont you
lose some alcohol that way or the internal psi wont be that high i take it
since you have to run it slow at about only 170 deg F
Dr Greg Tyree: Great video!! One question??? Isn't the worm a bit close to the flames from
the stove? Is there any chance this could cause a fire?? Thank you.....
Happy New Year!!
Dan Clark: is there any way you can demonstrate how to make sugar whiskey and proper
way to proof. I would like to learn all I can from you.
A Ivanovas: how long temperature must be 90-95 degrees
Mike Kerns: Can i use a alumminum pressure cooker for this or no its a presto model 406
Charles Hall: I followed all your steps on mash making & other details. But I did not use
enzymes I just boiled the corn meal till it was very soupy. If you could
please give me any details on distilling or other thing I would very
appreciate it. Awesome video btw
ARCSTREAMS: so your tired of ppl making a poisenous illegal product huh,,,on behalf of
yt i thank you for showing us how to make safe illegal moonshine,,for demo
purpous only of course,,wink wink
Moto Louk: Thanks for putting this video together man! Questions for you - should
shine coming out of the worm be warm or cold?
84montecarlonazi: Did u flare the copper line yourself
The World's End: Prepare: Easy Build Moonshine Still...These booze recipes are aimed at off gridders
but anyone looking to save few quid then on u go...
kyle dantzler: Dis is illegal dont do it :/
Cliff Williams: Hey folks - I got some questions about the coil:
First, is the pipe in the video 1/4" outside diameter or inside diameter?
Really, I'd like to know the ideal width and length for the coil;
especially for one hooked up to a 20 qt pressure cooker. Is longer better?
is wider better?
Bryson Raber: wcemichael where did u get your adapter coupler and your pressure fitting
for a solderless connection to copper tubing at?
T.J. Top: Why do you repeat the same things over and over again? This is a ten
minute video that could have been explained in two minutes.
tantaluss68: can we please talk about the fitting some more
mashersmasher: do you have tho throw out more by producing smaller batches? in another
video someone had nearly a 4 gallon pot and discarded 50ml. would I only
need to discard 10-15 mil with this design?
Mark M: First of all, I wanted to thank you. This is an excellent way to easily
make a cheap still. I'm working on a modification of this design right now.
Second, for all the idiots out there - just shut up already. Regarding the
aluminum, you put way more on your body everyday in your deodorant than you
could ever get from this still - assuming of course that the metal
particles magically disobey the laws of physics and evaporate (they don't).
As far as the design is concerned, a quick Google search will show plenty
of stills where the output is close to the flame. Unless you're an idiot
and mix the two, nothing will ever happen.
TL;DR - idiots shouldn't make alcohol.
Drew Olinger: I like that this still is cheap and easy to make. BUT you also said that
you were tired of seeing people making crack pot stills and making
poisonous liquor. You mentioned that the pot you used was aluminum. Isn't
that a no-no for distilling? I thought aluminum pots released toxins into
BigbadJoe Joe: Has anyone told you how annoying adverts and links to other videos are
while your trying to watch something interesting. Had to turn it off, It
was doing my tits in. Sorry.
John Heron: Mine is leaking lots of steam from the fitting what kind of tips and tricks
would you recommend
Tyler Warner: So this is 1/4" pipe for the coil
Gerry Clyde: This is so slow, I got things to do than listen to a full instructional
lesson on what a damned pressure cooking Pot does.
Che Marshall: Go ahead and put it on the stove. And make sure you do it in the dark with
all the lights off so you're wife doesn't catch you.
Gary Lee: if I am going to use this idea for camping in order to make potable water,
on a daily use, must I clean it with distilled vinegar? I am hunting a
product that hardly needs any maintenance. except normal washing, think i
ought to go stainless steel pot and line?
William Gruff: The little ring on the copper pipe is called an 'olive'.
Wesley Weber: Where do you find the pipe with the fittings? The hardware stores around
here don't seem to have them
Jason Camacho: What size is that fitter
ARCSTREAMS: "this video is for demo only" err yeah ok sure,,ill go along with that
5A1312EWULFX: You should not use aluminum as a pot still..
cbiskit31: Am I wrong or does stainless steel have a possibility of contaminating the
liquor, that's why the old ones were made out of copper?
schilling399: I like the first comment you have in the video about being tired of
watching people throw something together and calling it a still. This video
is pretty much a perfect example of that very comment. If you can get some
sort of pure ethanol out of it then you are doing just fine. I have a still
made out of an old SS 15.5 gallon keg and it is also just some stuff thrown
together to make a still. But it works.
Clyde D'souza: Can you tell me how to distill methanol?
Carrie581: It can be dangerous. Best to start with cheap wine.
Colhoon: Great simple video. intend to make one like this for ouzo runs with herbs
in the pot from a pure spirit solution diluted down to 40% or less.
for aluminium haters, do some research, plenty do this with no flavour
my grannys in good health at 92 .. aluminium pots, deal with it.
najma Shueyb: Like think Vedic
Mmsok Ggg: simply just do the freeze destilling put the thing in the freezer the water
will freeze and the alchol will stay as liquid
Chris Parsons: Easy Build Moonshine Still...These booze recipes are aimed at off gridders
but anyone looking to save few quid then on u go...
David Homealone: I find all your videos very informative so many thanks.
I'm a newbie so my question is, does the could need to be elevated or was
that just to fit your particular pipe set up?
richmondhillsangat: Dangerous Setup: Alcohol dripping is dangerously close to firestove.
Keeping the condenser unit far away at least 5 feet away would be safe.the
vapour s can also ignite.
Dylan Johnson: i use this same still and works great i make mine for personal use so this
still works great not expensive and works great
Paul J Erickson: Dude, your stovetop is gross! A+ for set-up, D- for workstation
indicoltsfan1212: What are the parts called that are used to connect the copper tubing to the
mikedemod: Great starting advice for me
thanks, ime getting the bits together at home, gonna make some
steam! Could I use ready to drink cider as the slop?
Linda Wheeler: Hi Michael, Is there any reason I can't use this still to distill water?
Can I put dirty water in the lower pot and have it distill as clean water,
as so many expensive pro units do? Or would I need to make modifications?
chris spence: i want my shine to run 140 proof what could i do to make it run higher
proofs than what you are yeilding
agnewrt: Is the final product mostly pure ethanol, or is some of the taste of the
mash imparted as well?
Daz Wickham: Can we make ethanol this way also
