Would you trust these soldered connections?

I considered going with 1/2" threaded rod & couplings, but that just seemed a tad excessive.

Re: Anyone done a tomato vodka?

Had a bartender friend that made a “tomato water” martini. Filtered the tomato purée and got a nearly clear liquid that was a punch in the mouth of garden tomato goodness. Maybe a maceration would stay clear....

Another project I guess....thanks old thread!
