Re: sealing my pot still?

Rad, I understand that the gasket glue is toxic but the steam does not come in contact with the glue. Also, the cork I used is bellcork which is compatible with international safety standard for food products. I do appreciate your concern, but I think the response to put respectfully was a little se...

Re: Novice Guide for Cuts (pot still)

Hey guys I've read through this post numerous times and I learn something new each time. But I am still confused on a stripping run. I'm using a pot still and I understand this is a fast run but what temperature do you run it at? Do you collect all that comes out and just re distill it?

Methanol or alchohol?

How do you tell the difference between the two by looking at them? or is there anyway to test them. I'm just worried about drinking methanol.
