I got me a new baby still

Post by SPEEDY »

I was chasing a small 4-5lt still to make small scale experimental batches with. I fould this great little bar still for what was a an excessive rice but it's just so pretty.
Now I can make 5lt mini batches of mash and really lock in my flavour profile. :boogie:
I've got some Burbon, wheet whiskey and soon a batch of rum to run through it to work it through its paces, after a viniger run that is.
But it sure does look good on the bar. :handgestures-thumbup:

Works alright too, I'm going to run a wheet wash through it tonight, I've done a viniger wash, watered down heads and then the wheet wash for its first real run.

It's my drinks cabinet, left to right are 10lt of scotch, 10lt of rye whiskey and 10lt of spiced rum.
All are ageing with about 1/8th of the space being taken up with home toasted oak.

It's great I'm sitting in my lazy boy, watching moonshiners and running the still on the cabinet.

In fact it's running on its own heads and it's coming out so smooth.

Had a couple of runs out of it now, here's the good and the bad.

The good.
1) simple to use.
2) easy to clean.
3) easy to operate, no complicated connections needed.
4) fits anywhere.
5) it's solid, this thing will out live me with no electrical system to mess up.
6) you can use it to make its own fuel or run it on cheap methylated spirits.
7) makes really good smooth whiskey.

The bad.

1) easy to clean, but if you want it looking polished all the time, you will probably have polish it every week.
2) the worm is a bit low, you have to keep catching your spirit in a short glass.
Doesn't really make enough to check the ABV as you run, so I check it with the spoon test. (ask if anyone wants to know that old school way)
3) the big drawback, it takes 3-4 refills of the fuel burner to complete a run. I'm switching to a hiking gas stove, but you have to get one that will fit under it.
