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 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.

If you’re ever loaded and see a clock that says 6.33pm , you might be a stiller with access to too much likker!

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...

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....
If in doubt leave it out.

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.

If you have sixty eight 2kg bags of sugar in the basement and the wife texts you and says Walmart has sugar on for $1.27 a bag so you go and pick up 40 more bags, you might be a distiller!

If your first name is Ben, then you might be a Stiller.

Sorry, bit off topic and not really funny, but couldn't resist.

Argh.... kind of a double post from page 3.
May a mod please delete it.

Swing... and a miss.. lol! It’s all good, the world always needs humour.

After hitting Wally World and picking up sugar I found I’m running out of storage... so I’m putting a 110L batch on when I get home today.

So....

If you’ve ever had to put on a batch of sugar wash because you don’t have any place to store it, you might be a stiller. :D

First world problems being what they are, ive been trying to decide what to make to "wash" one of my barrels after the malbec comes out. (That wines is coming along wonderfully I might add. Nice bourbon notes but not overpowering the hearty red wine.)
So to clean out some of the wine before putting a bourbon back in, ive thought about a big batch of SSS diluted to 65%, let it sit and pull some of the wine out of the wood.

If you‘ve ever thought 2 inches is big, you might be a stiller.

... chatting with your friends and telling them you want to try out something new.... and you start the story with "There's a guy called uncle Jesse..."

... named your dog "white" ...

... found yourself comparing the kilo price of corn and sugar, in relation to product abv. and taste ...

Many years ago I did a 30L batch of “purple passion “ which is wine made with Welch’s grape juice. After doing it I ran it through the still.
Next time I was running a batch of all grain corn and I used the feights from the PP batch. Well! It was whisky with a bit of red wine after tones. Sounds disgusting but it was awesome after sitting on oak for a couple months.

So, I’d fill it with whisky if I were you.

Yeah, another thought was fill it with UJSSM. I'm kind of afraid to fill it with all grain bourbon right after the wine comes out.
