If the wife looks at you in the store and says "sugars on sale you need any..oh yeah you use grain now, never mind" you might be a stiller.
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!

You might be a distiller if you hoped the vet would leave behind his tincture of iodine after he cleared the impaction. Your wife was wanting the bute.

Bingo on both :wave: Didja know that 1/4 bute and a double shot of 110 proof will enable you to run a foot race on a broke leg ?

If you've ever left the bathroom fan running 24/7 so the neighbors can't hear all the air locks bubbling, you might be an apartment stiller.
You can judge a great whiskey with one sip, but it's best to be thorough.

If you walk in the feed and seed, notice a 50# bag of barley went from $11.85 to $12.50, make a comment and the guy on the cash says “oh, what’s that, another nickel per quart of whisky?” :shock: you might be a stiller.

When yur wife pulls up seeing you carry 4-5 gal pails of molasses to the truck and not making Christmas cookies with it.
The neighbors (who love my rum) see you putting 4 sacks of brown sugar in the barn along with the pails of moll and they get a shit eating grin.

if you and your family saved and stripped cables from electrical appliances with a stanley knife to get COPPER and took old t.v's to bits to get COPPER and took transformers from microwaves to get COPPER (and magnets) also saved a bunch of COPPER PIPES whenever you found them , if you did that in your spare time for 2 years to save up for extra christmas cash last year and the first thing you did with you'r share , after the check from the scrap merchant cleared was buy............

a COPPER PIPE :mrgreen: 3 by 46 inch

you might be on the way to being a stiller
(true story , I bought 2 fermenting buckets , 2 heat pads , and some other bits too)

Okay, I'm not lying! :oops:s

Took extra medication for flu and back pain so I REALLY slept well.'
Well kind of.
Had a dream involving my wife's family's lake house.
I'm standing on the shoreline and a couple of guys walk up from different directions. The three of stop and shoot the breeze about the weather and how the water looks.
Creektown.jpg
(stock photo, not mine)

I don't recall much of the conversation, but something was a tipoff and one guy looks at the other and says, "I kinda thought so ....
What's your Member's Name?"
He looks funny, then answers with the name of one of my fellow Alabamians. "And what's yours?"
#2 tells him one of the other names I'm familiar with but of course haven't met.
They both look at me and say, "Well. What's YOUR name?" I tell them "Bamaberry" and we all recognize each other from postings.
We hang out a while and decide to go somewhere and get food and a "beverage".
One of them looks at me and asks what size still I'm using. I tell him 5 gallon pot.
He says, "I got a 20 gallon stainless that's in my way. You'd be doing me a big favor taking it off my hands and seeing if you can use it"
I say Sure, but it's too big to fit in my trunk. We get it in the back seat, cover it up as best as possible and head out down the back roads around the lake.
I see 2 (or 3??) Sheriff's cars and I'm just about to have heart attack.

So does dreaming about this "stuff" qualify?
:wtf: :wtf: :wtf:

...was at the grain shop when the owner (a beer brewer) calls my name from across the store.
"Can you help this man with a distillation problem, please?"
Resolved the nice old man's fermentation issue, made a hydrometer sale, and felt like a saint.
Saint fizzix.
Has a ring to it.

A year ago if it didn't involve turbo yeast, I would not have been able to dispense any advice at all.
Really felt good to realize that Home Distiller has brought me so far along.

On the drive home I thought, "Today, I am a Stiller."
