Re: Cleaning a new still

Any advise for cleaning an old still out there? My still has been in storage for almost 3 years and I'm dusting it off in the next few weeks. It was properly cleaned after the last run and stored in a fermenting barrel, minus the liebig that did not fit. I'm thinking a vinegar run should do the tric...

Distillation is almost like a disease. It gets in your blood, it gets in your mind, and body. I have no distillers in my family, but as far back as I can remember, after my first sip from the Appalachia, I knew I was going to do it one day. And a few years back I did. I researched, on this forum, fo...

Get yourself a good propane turkey burner. One that will hold a keg for the future! That will be your quickest and easiest route to take. Outside of that your looking at using heating elements, plenty info on those here. I guess you can mod the electric burner to make it not cycle, seems like alot o...

A simple thing like UJ ant bad unaged also....with something like that you can age half the run and drink the other half. That's what I do, keep it all whiskey, cause that's what I like!

Re: Am I charring enough?

At 6 weeks mine ALWAYS taste like burnt wood. At one year I usually find out that it's amazing or I overchared. It's a loooong learning curve for me, but very fun to experiment.

+1 on the rum. Gotta have some white dog around to sip while you wait for the whiskey.

Re: Propane, and a question about cinder blocks.

I use cinder blocks as a wind shield for my turkey burner. Helps alot when there is a breeze outside.

I've used cinder blocks as fire pits before.....ALL cinder blocks eventually break from heat...in my experience.

I wouldn't dare set my boiler on one.
