steve harris: I cant find one of these in any stores only online is there any where other
then online to get one?
nonyaefinBuisness: Ok now I understand water boils at 212 Fahrenheit and Drinkable alcohol
boils at 173 Fahrenheit.
I do know a few shine makers that have a good product and they keep the
temperature between 175-185 Fahrenheit.
So what I'm asking is how can you produce a good safe drinkable alcohol
from a water distiller ?
I would be afraid of any alcohol produced from one.
guypi: Are you drunk ?
Brandon Mcallen: but youre distilling wine that has gone bad
Brandon Mcallen: lol i love the disclaimer at 30 seconds
vance hanna: Ok i have a unit JUST like this one, a water distiller, and every time i
try to use it, i get a massive boil over. Any tips?
flamedrag18: "distilling alcohol is illegal in north america" better talk to jack
brewersdirect2: your are adding too much mash (liquid) to the stainless steel distiller.
keep it under the fill line. cheers
randahoozy: I just ran 4 liters of gallo red (11%alcohol) through the same machine.
Result-30 proof-15% alcohol. Where in the world do you get the 65% figure?
Art Konstantino: He is pretty funny. I feel like he raised my Blood/Alcohol content to .60
just from listening to him. I also thought that if we boil alcohol-booze,
we remove the alcohol kick. My age and I still don't know stuff like this.
Duh, LOL! Thanks.
fuckdapoleys: ethanol boils at 173c and water boils at 100c r u sure that it exceeds
TheSleepermgm: i was thinking of doing this ....how can it work with spirits do to how hi
the temp gets to boil water ???? i know you would have to run it back
through to get 180 proof but the alc, burns off at a lower temp then water
so how do you keep the temp down to keep the water out of the spirits
Hannible100: Good vid dude but what did you film this on a 9mm camera from 1969?
TheK75s: acctually I live in missouri and according to section 330.055 and 330.121
it is legal to distill spirits in my home state as long as its for personal
use. I can legally distill up to 200 gal. a year so if you don't live in
missouri,sorry about your stuff,hahahaha
SovereignBeing: yes dont open the lid when its finished like i just did ...! ouch!
flamedrag18: distillation is LEGAL in north america. you just need to buy the proper
permits for the country, province or state you live in. I hate how people
claim something's illegal when it obviously isn't. if distillation was
illegal, you'd see a lot of liquor producers go out of business.
Jason: hey there, Along with keeping the wash below the line (usually 4 litres)
you can add ceramic buttons (just a handful) and the top shelf distilling
conditioner which is a de-foaming agent. that will solve all your
TheSleepermgm: @ThinkPureTruth no the alcohol turns to a gas and you catch it with the
still then flash it back to a liquid with a condensor and at this point it
will be stronger.....you use the steam not the left over's....it like how
crackheads cook the cocaine down to its base form to make it
stronger....its the same thing.....lol
orangestoneface: l did not discard throw away the first cup or two when l was distilling
beer once, and drank the distilled beer , but did not go blind or die, it
tasted badly so l drank little at a time l guess, remove the first 5% of
the distillate termed 'foreshots', (containing esters, methylates, and
aldehydes). They are distasteful but not fatal and the smell and taste is
naturally prohibitive. On record, fore-shot distillate has never blinded,
killed, or sickened anyone.
joeman369: runs at temp of 212f and can be distilled a few times but you can only get
a max of 83 percent abv from the machine
warywolfen: It's legal if you get a permit from the BATFE to make alcohol for fuel,
which is easy to do. Of course, you're not supposed to drink it...:)
Gilbert Ehret: Can I use this to make herb oil?
TheK75s: sorry about that I meant missouri 311.055 and 311.020
Raoul Duke: It is amazing that people still think that the heads are methanol. What you
call your head is actually the "foreshot". Heads is a much greater amount
than what you are collecting. Heads smells a bit like nail polish remover.
Use the nose and mouth in order to know when to start collecting the middle
cut. Mail me for questions
warywolfen: If you do that, they DO require that you keep accurate records regarding
how much you make & use. "Hmmm....I really need to have someone come and
check out the alcohol-fueled engine on my generator! Its efficiency is
terrible! It burns up a gallon a week more than it should!"
Jeffrey Humm: Ceramic Boil Enhancers- .buy at brew stores
WorldTruthSociety: I have a big question for you. I have been doing this thanks to you but can
I double distill my alcohol in my water distiller or will I blow myself up
or something. cause I already ran it once but would like it stronger.
roger hurd: where in the hell do you think methanol is coming from? Seriously sugar,
water, and yeast. By throwing away those 10 or so ml you are throwing away
the best part.
sol ric: no because he used a filter. turned it to steam to collect the water better
MrLowenzo: Should you run all your alcohol through a filter after it has been through
the distiller? Also, what filter would you use? Thanks.
kabbymaster: I got drunk off the vapors. Holy moly!
skippy4290: these guys all seem to be cool.......but smashed also...lol....cool im off
to buy 1 thanks
Ховард Хендриксон: WRONG! Ethanol's boiling point is only 78.37°C = 173 FAHRENHEIT. Water
Boils at 100C = 212F. Ergo, the alcohol boils at a LOWER temp than water...
blankpage2012: Raoul - Can you explain more in depth?! Would like to do more research on
basics of distillation. I've been watching pontiuspylate and wng689 for
their entire process vids of moonshine run. Message privately if possible.
frankoneilljr: wow you are freaking boreing!
Tiffany Coghill: Did you try that to keep it under the fill line? Did it work? If so I was
yoochoooob: Wash or Mash ?
Jason: can i ask...did you run all 4 litres through?? sounds like you did and with
losses would have given that small increase in alc volume. For a 4 litre
wash it should take about 2 hours to do the run...the first 50 ml throw
away (bad crap). Then you will get about 800-850 ml of Alcohol at around
60-65%. turn off your machine and let it cool down. You will have about 3
litres in the air still..throw it away. you got what you need from it. The
water it down to 40% and run it through a filter...done
Tracey Clarke: The Amaretto that you can make with this is gorgeous, i also like the
stillspirits Classic Whisky, i bought the Smartstill version of this
machine and it's the best thing i've ever bought ..............Thanks for
the Video :D
mbourgon: In case you're not doing this exact procedure, how do you know when the
"head" (methanol, I think you said) is done? Or do you just automatically
throw away the first 20-50ml?
Jason: Mate after i distill i always put my diluted to 40% base spirit through a
charcoal filter. Charcoal doesn't filter alcohol over 50% very well. By
doing a final filter you remove any final impurities in your spirit. You
can get a AIR STILL CARBON FILTER & COLLECTOR SYSTEM from ebay for around
$45 dollars (filters 1.2 litres max), or a Still Spirits EZ Filter for
about $120 on ebay (filters 10litres)..hope this helps
mee: i have old beer from about 3 years ago. It is bottled and carbonated. Can
this be distilled?....or does it have to be un-carbonated?
starshock01: alcohol distilling is legal if you are making it for fuel and denature it
joeman369: @tsadl has to be un carbonated sorry man
sol ric: he used a filter
bigtruck182: 5 u.s gallons = 18.9271 liters bro not 23
mmaghfai: You can tell this guy drinks A LOT! lmao thanks for the video
