I have a turkey cooker that i am using as a pot and it is aluminum. I have been trying to solder a copper pipe to it and it won't stick. I have scraped the pot up and still not result.
Im making a simple corn whiskey, im single stilling i think lol (not real sure what that means but i can guess) and the percent wash is 12%. My still is a pot with a 20 ft 3/8" copper pipe that runs a few feet then i turned it into a worm that goes in a bucket that i am goin to fill with water.
I have a small two gallon still that i recently built, and have been wondering how long it should take me to get done doing a run if i fill it 80% full? One other question is how full should i actually fill the pot?
