Hi to everyone from across the world
I am from Western Cape , South Africa . Great Pleasure it is to meet you all

I have been reading this Forum as a guest for the most part of this Year, it has been a huge help with a wealth of Knowledge ...Thanks to everyone who contributes for the benefit of us Newbies . Also Thanks to lock down I have found a new hobby to pursue , with good People to learn from !

I have just finished Building a 35lt stainless steel dome top Pot still with an all Copper 90cm high , 51mm diameter Column with a 100cm Liebig Condenser . So far I have only done a few Vinegar runs and a steam cleaning run. My heat source is a single Plate Gas Burner under the Pot ..
At the moment I am waiting for my first " Birdwatchers " sugar wash to finish Fermenting so I can do my very first Sacrificial run ....Then it will be on to single malt Barley ..Home grown of course

Great to be Part of the this Family Group ..........Thanks again !
