New here! Can't wait to start shining!!!

Post by whiteboy » Fri Feb 10, 2017 8:37 pm

I was just gonna use a pressure cooker but after reading a stainless steel keg is generally recommended. I still gotta figure out where to get one. Are they all created equal? Also I want to get a still head/lyne arm/condenser kit. Any recommendations or should I just get the cheapest? After all this I should be good to go correct?

Greetings, whiteboy...

You keg question is beyond the scope of the Welcome Center and should be asked in a more appropriate forums, but only after expending ample efforts in researching for an answer in the forums first... Your question has most likely been adequately answered at least once if not several times already... No need making members repeat themselves and further cluttering these forums...

Good luck, stay safe, and enjoy the journey...

Theres a lot of information to cover and it'll do you well to read it. It's a very enjoyable hobby but, patience is definitely necessary.
