ATCRyderX©: Great tutorial. Built the Still - Now how do I actually produce
Bryson Raber: wcemichael where did u get your adapter coupler and your pressure fitting
for a solderless connection to copper tubing at?
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?
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.
John Heron: Mine is leaking lots of steam from the fitting what kind of tips and tricks
would you recommend
Patrick Himebaugh: I like the Condenser part the most out of this set up, at first, before I
watched this vid, I thought Wow very cleaver.. because I thought the copper
coils were in a block of Ice. I've seen pumps and Ice water, and just plain
Ice water.. what I got out of this design was that you can actually fill up
the container where the copper coil is at and freeze the water over night.
I would think the block of ice would last longer to make more runs than to
keep refilling with Ice water.
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?
Clyde D'souza: Can you tell me how to distill methanol?
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
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.
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?
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?
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.
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...
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?
indicoltsfan1212: What are the parts called that are used to connect the copper tubing to the
William Gruff: The little ring on the copper pipe is called an 'olive'.
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.
Paul J Erickson: Dude, your stovetop is gross! A+ for set-up, D- for workstation
Jason Camacho: What size is that fitter
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.
najma Shueyb: Like think Vedic
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.
5A1312EWULFX: You should not use aluminum as a pot still..
Wesley Weber: Where do you find the pipe with the fittings? The hardware stores around
here don't seem to have them
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?
agnewrt: Is the final product mostly pure ethanol, or is some of the taste of the
mash imparted as well?
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
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...
Carrie581: It can be dangerous. Best to start with cheap wine.
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
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
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
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?
gary rimington: you are a horrible narrator. i wanted to shoot myself listening to you
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
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.
Chase Le grange: can you do this
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.
wcemichael: Where did you find this info?
wcemichael: Copper tubing can be bent with your bare hands. Just don't kink it. You can
use a small closed end wrench to help in tight corners. Just bend it a
little, move down 1/16 inch and repeat.
Mike Gold: LMAO you do what ever you like . You need to drink a bunch of this bullcrap
you are making ....When you start shaking an pissing your self we will talk
...Hell run a car radiator for a condenser then tell me the lead didnt
leach out in to your finished product LMAO
BRIENSTEIN: I have my coil with a 7/32 I.D. my Question is will that be big enough?
(for the condenser) this video was very helpful
wcemichael: It's ok for a short term use, but if you making a choice on which is best,
then just go for the stainless steel
David Goff: Sorry, I left you with eyebrow raised, there is a reason why Still's are
made the way they are, first, you have no thermometer, which is so needed
for this process. Don't say you can regulate it by the burner because you
can't, you need a thermometer and a good one at that, digital ones are the
best for stills. Second, our coil is all wrong, you never drop your coil
down, and I mean never. Third never use glues or JB weld for anything with
a still if it cannot be properly brazed with proper
Thoughtthumper: well you're are forgetting that any thing metal when heat is applied
oxidizes, when things oxidizes other chemical are produce. it is not the
METAL that makes your alcohol poison but those oxidization impurities
reacting with the alcohol that makes it poison. he was right when he said
copper or stainless, but copper is preferred seeing as copper itself
purifies liquids. i bet that aluminum brew you got going on there cant hold
a good bead to save your life.
wcemichael: No it doesn't, the vapors are condensed. IT CAN HAPPEN if your not watching
