Ryan Hunter: The shine you get from wine is called grappa.
John Ross: how much alcohol can you get from one fill and how long does it take
Bill S: you can use aluminum people just fear that the alcohol will eat at it and
cause it to pit. some say it happens other guys say they've used aluminum
for years with no problems. stainless is far superior though
Jonathon D: You can use aluminum , there are companies that make brew pots out of
aluminum kegs and guys are brewing their beer in them . Aluminum is
perfectly safe for you to use
Davey O: Were did you get the temp gauge for your PC?
christopaterakis: i heard that cooper makes poisonous moonshine if its not coated with a
specific mixture to clean it from cooper corosion (that blue-green thing )
so is cooper tube safe ?

Gray Au: Aluminum in exrtemely, almost unnoticeable bits will be inside of whatever
you drink/cook from it. Aluminum is stored in the body similarly to led, it
freaks you up and makes you dumber, increases chances of Alzheimer, etc.
Aluminum is toxic to the human body. If u have any aluminum cookware stop
Lee Hazlett: "its not a system that... ya know... you can make millions of dollars on"
... however millions of dollars have been made on such a system.
Nicholas Pamperin: what size pressure cooker do you need? 8 quart? or bigger than that?
mikie harrington: what size corks did you use?
Charles Cousins: 3:55 HEY! knock it off!
Joshua Alan: You do not have to throw out the first 2 oz... I have never heard of that..
Ive made shine for over ten years now.. What comes out first is strongest,
but perfectly fine to drink.
vem invested: some people say this first 2oz..???? i even heard the first cup.... does it
matter the size of the still?? does bigger stills have to toss out more...
and is there a way to know when to toss and when to start keeping...(smell,
newj90: No poison. Just throw out the first 4 ounces and your ok. Just keep the
temp below the boiling point of water. Alcohol has a lower boiling point,
you want alcohol to evaporate out and the water to stay in the still. The
lower the temp the smoother the shine. I live in the blue ridge mountains
in NC and have seen shine made the right way and the wrong way for years.
newj90: They quit making aluminum kegs in 1987. They are all stainless steel now.
Carl Gibson: I was taught that the head(methanol) consist of the first 10 ml per gallon
distilled. I usually take a little more to be on the safe side. It'll be
the same color but will smell a little more like acetone. You'll be fine
using these measurements but if your still worried just take a little more
you'll still get plenty of whiskey
newj90: I started with a little still like that. I have a 15 gallon keg still now.
I use a 55 gallon barrel for mash, it makes about 5 gallons of good shine.
I use a little pressure cooker like you have for a thump keg. I use the
cracked corn from Tractor Supply. 5 lbs of corn and 5 lbs of sugar for
every 5 gallons of water. I cook the corn to soften it. I bring it to
temprature then cut it back a bit, the temp will adjust it's self, when it
starts rising on it's own the alcohol is gone.
Tim"s Brew"s: kegs r stainless
tj kyle: What do u do to clean tha copper tubing out between uses
Zeke Ortiz: I have nearly the exact same setup. Something I found that works better
than just ice in the cool station is a lot of ice, mixed with water and
salt. Salt allows the majority of the Ice to turn back into water as it
lowers the freezing point of water. This allows the cold to touch every
part the tubing and cools off more ethanol at a faster rate. Also I would
turn down the heat on the pressure cooker. At 210 Degrees F, much of the
water can still turn into a gas and expell.
Carl Gibson: I've gotten 125-135 proof several times with a very similar setup.
Jake Foster: 25ft I used .....my new still has 20ft both work great
Zeke Ortiz: Since Ethanol boils at 173 °F you don't need the heat that high and frankly
- you shouldn't have the heat that high. Water will still boil at 210°F and
you'll be left with a lot of hard work for nothing. I recommend 180°F or
185°F. This gets hot enough to boil the Ethanol, while leaving the water in
the pressure cooker.
fdagfdga dfgadfgfd: the speed of the process is a lot less on the copper tubing and more on the
heat of the mash
MrJimanderz1: Some kegs are stainless steel those are the ones you want
Jake Foster: Just flush it with water use no cleaning chemicals at all once I flush I
then just blow air thur it so nothing is sitting in the piping till my next
garfieldwithissuez: Forgive my ignorance, but I take it you are either no in the US, or have an
"if I'm not selling it it's no one else's business attitude? Or am I
mistaken about current US laws regarding distillation for home use?
Glen Ledbetter: i heard you say that your not suppose tp use alum,why are there several
people selling keg stills
eric goins: Nice dude understand a bit better
Jake Foster: Idk why your not suppose to use aluminum just heard its bad
seidson45: How long was your copper tubing?
