If you cant walk through Tractor Supply without going through the feed and grain room (even though you dont have any farm animals), you might be a stiller..
Last week, I found rolled oats, flaked corn, and whole white wheat, and didnt buy anything but oyster shell for the garden, and another 5 gallon bucket. :crazy:

If you look at every piece of fruit, potato, cereal and wonder how much starch is in it and what kind of starting gravity you would get, you might be a stiller

If just the sight of copper plumbing ever made you wonder if a urinal could be made into thumper...

If your PhD scientist daughter comes home after a few years out of the house and says "Dad, I don't even need to see that all hooked up to know what you're up to!", you might be a stiller.

Last time I bought grain at TSC the clerk asked me what I was feeding ."Yeast," was my reply .
"Y'all need any propane for that ?"was his reply .

If you’re ever loaded and see a clock that says 6.33pm , you might be a stiller with access to too much likker!
Numerous 57L kegs, some propane, one 220v electric with stilldragon controller. Keggle for all-Grain, two pot still tops for whisky, a 3" reflux with deflag for vodka. Coming up, a 4" perf plate column. Life is short, make whisky and drag race!

When your wife tells your kids that you are talking about making likker again, and the kids buy you a BOP for Christmas, you might be getting a hint from them that they'd like you to be a stiller again...
Simple Lil' Pot Still, no temp guage, no carbon, no scrubbers, nuthin' fancy. Sometimes use a thumper, sometimes don't.

When your wife brings a mixed drink home from work and says you can do better after yall try it. Finds a recipe and buys what you dont have on hand so you can make it.

When you do a drive-by of the feed store and decide to come back another day because you know the guy working the counter asks a lot of questions and gives you funny looks. You might be.....

I had to look at that for a minute... what the hell was I talking about? Was I loaded when I wrote that??

Then I realized, I was talking about being loaded by 6.33pm and yes I remember posting that and yes I was loaded at the time... holy moley...when you have to explain your own jokes to yourself, you might be a stiller!

When you are stuck behind a grain truck on a country road, watching grain spill out when it hits the bumps and wishing you had a bucket....

Same in this area, to a point. Several chicken houses were stripped of ALL copper some years back when prices were up some. Two 400 or 500 foot houses got stripped in less than a week. Faster than the bank could get the paperwork printed for the people buying them.
