Thanks!

Putting older posts here. Going to try to keep the novice forum pruned about 90 days work. The 'good' old stuff is going to be put into appropriate forums.

I would just like to thank everyone who has put information on this site. I have succesfully built my first still and run a couple of sugar washs through it which have turned out fantastic! I found this site so informative that i havent felt the need to post any questions yet. So thanks again all.

Sounds like you're on your way, scotsman... Just goes to show that taking the time to sort your way through the good, the bad, and the ugly, here can pay off in the long run... We want pictures...

Well if more proof is needed that it can be done, I also built my still and ran a few runs before ever posting a question here, although I have to admit my hooch was utter crap until I got a few skills refined.

Congratulations, scotsman, and welcome.
