    Re: Home distilled

    Searcher I do not use temperature as the control variable for a still. An azeotrope has a mind of it own and the boiling point of the mixture moves during the course of the run as you well know.

    Copper removes sulphur and other nasties and is a very good antibacterial metal.

    Glass is good and it is used but rather fragile.

    Condensers take the alcohol vapour and reduce that back to a...

    So curiously why a 4" and not a 2". I have a funnel to feed the kettle.

    You have to be very vigilant with gas. Very slight breezes can easily blow the flame out. Fit a mirror or something so that you can always view if there is flame.

    Indeed I do. I have a EFS 17-55mm and the EFS 18-55. So the 18-55 is superfluous to my needs.

    It has a Kenko UV filter bolted on and both lens caps.
