I was thinking that myself young Jedi, sweet corn is delicious.

Just no one ever eats it raw in Australia I might have to give it a try.

Re: Home Distiller T-shirts

My local teeshirt screenprinter is still in business and MY cost per shirt is pretty cheap. BUT - that's for pre-ordering, pre-paying & me shipping to everyone individually?? Not ideal so I believe a fulfillment company like Teespring is the most practical way to do this. Not only can you list a va...

Just went through ripping them in half to remove the seed and threw the flesh in the fermenter. You can get away with usin...

Re: First still = FREE still!

Wow that’s awesome,,,,

Is it quite heavy duty or is it thin flimsy copper in the pot?

It looks like its heavy gauge Copper

A temperature gauge on a pot still is a waste of time in my opinion

With my HP burner turned down as low as it will go I pull product off at a rate of 300mls every 9 minutes. It is a good idea to time this and I always do, the reason for this is a to...
