Table top mason jar on tap

Post by Odinson88 » Tue Aug 11, 2020 3:09 pm

Saw this on moonshiners s08e01
(I watch for entertainment, so let's not turn this into something else).

Curious if anyone has any thoughts on how it might be made. The narrow tube, I believe is a breather, but it doesnt enter the jar.

It also appears as though the likker would flow right to the base plate, so there must be something blocking it below the tap, or...

Any thoughts/ideas?

Yep, looks like an air breather tube and a pain to refill without removing the mason jar, though I could be missing something.

If ya build one, maybe do a gallon jug?

I assumed to refill, you would turn it upside down, thread jar on, turn right side up.

does breather tube not need to enter jar to function?

I didn't see that moonshiner's episode. But looks unsafe and useless. Just pour the shit from the bottle. Cock valves have rubber seats. Yum yum turn to gum.

Discovery channel is such a pile of shit these days. It's been decades since they weren't a pile of reality tv shit.

Just like grandpappy built it....

I don't know why folks want to make things hard. Maybe use the tap to dispense likker into your hands to slurp out...

I would bet it’s full of water. Supply from below and a tap to dispense. No need to refill or invert or whatever. All tv viewers will see a mason jar and assume shine is in it.
