When you defend a poor design by calling us unsafe you risk everyone here walking away from all your products. Poor marketing on your part.

Re: Is there any money in a legal moonshine business

Maybe you should look into a cheap location in an industrial area. Then you lease the whole property.

Just ask the landlord if you can add an option out of the lease if you aren't approved.

Re: Who keeps there heads and who tosses them

Is anyone cutting heads out when doing a stripping run? Or just foreshots? I start my stripping runs in reflux mode. I have a CM still so I can start with heads compression. Once I'm past the worst of the heads I cut the flow to the reflux condenser and then finish as a stripping run. These heads a...

Re: still only runs at 160° F

The only use I have for a thermometer with a pot still is when I'm waiting for things to warm up. I can see rapid change in vapor temp and I know that it is ready to start dripping. But the only reason it was put there is for tuning vapor temp when running in reflux mode.

If it is like any other business I've attempted then all I can advise is to expect to pour your entire being into it, work harder than you ever have in your life, possibly lose your family, just to end up dead broke and buried in debt. If you still love what you're doing after all that, then you mig...

Re: Yea, another new FNG...lol

Don't spend too much on that fermenter. You should be able to pick up a 35 gallon food grade barrel for pretty cheap. They are usually white and made out of HDPE. Even if the top is sealed you can still cut it off and flip it over for a lid. They usually run about $10 to $25, depending on where you ...

Just followed the links to the product data sheets from the manufacturer. Looks like the alpha enzymes are best stored at or below 10c, gluco enzymes at or below 5c. I keep mine in the back of the fridge.

Just ran my first stripping run of this recipe. Almost no heads to speak of. (I start my strip runs in spirit mode to take off the worst of the heads then turn up the heat.)
