Heck I got a version of this still from Amazon a while back. It was a good $110 or so cheaper than buying the parts I wanted individually. A little mix and match with parts I have on hand, came up with a good lil still with a gin basket of sorts. So far I've only cleaned/degreased, then did a vinegar run. Waiting for wash to finish fermenting.

I'll report back after I run it, whenever it is I'll have time. Happy stillin' everybody!

that "football" on top sure looks familiar. (this one from a Vevor chinese brand, don't see Dibosh anymore). works fine for me, at least it has got me into the game.

There's a screen in the lower half, to allow packing. Mine came with a pkg of porous ceramic balls that can go in there, for a bit of reflux action i assume. Haven't gotten familiar enough with it yet to know if any refluxing happens. Maybe it could also serve as a gin basket? I know nothing about making gin. I put my copper pieces in there.

Yeah that football is from a vevor 20 liter still I got years ago. It comes in handy on a few things.

Saltbush, the football is part of the vevor chinesium still, run it vertical and packed for simple reflux or run it emoty and horizontal for pot still mode. I like it cuz of the screen at the bottom, the volume, and for me it works like a Tee and a gin basket. I like the flavor of gins more than anything else

The other term for this football is an ONION. I have bought two of these stills.
