Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lore of Still Building (Paperback)
I bought this book because I was interested in ethanol fuel production. A portion of it is dedicated to beverage production. The information on the mechanics of the still are poor. The technical information about the chemical process of ethanol production are pretty good. Being no chemist I have to rely on my common sense and how good the author communicates technical info into layman's terms. He does a good job of that.
There are lots of stupid little cartoons that don't need to be in the book. It would be a good publication had it more detailed photographs, and good pictures of a functional reflux still.
It's too bad that everyone with any sort of information is not willing to share it without a monetary exchange. Everyone wants to get rich on the internet. I was just looking for some good information on a still. I've read varing reviews on a major source selling plans for a reflux still. Some say the plans are vague, other say it's ok. I just wanted a good book on the whole process. Is it worth $11.95 plus shipping? Maybe, but I think this book is a little overblown.
