Product Description

5 gallon copper "Moonshine" Still Kit - 100% copper. Step-by-step online assembly video instructions. Machine cut parts, perfectly sized and pre-drilled. Solid copper rivets. YOU NEED - A hammer, locking pliers, plumbing torch, lead free plumbing solder, water soluble plumbing flux, and a sense of adventure! Please note, assembly instructions exist in video format only and are available for free on the manufacturers website. If you do not have a fast or reliable internet connection, a USB memory stick, pre-loaded with all of the videos, is available for purchase directly from the manufacturer. Legal stuff - Buyer assumes any and all liability. Distilling equipment may not be legal for use in some areas. According to federal rules, stills are legal to be owned if not being used, nor intended to be used, to produce alcohol. In other words, if a still is only being used to filter water or make essential oils and these actions do not involve the distillation of alcohol, a still is legal to own, according to federal rules, and no permits are required. Additionally, distillation equipment can legally be used to distill ethanol if the still operator has a federal fuel alcohol permit. The permit is free, is easy to obtain. Rules on distillation vary from state to state. However, in alignment with federal rules, it is illegal to produce alcohol for consumption or for fuel, on the state level, without proper permits. Make sure to check your state requirements for ownership and operation of distillation equipment before purchasing a still. Note: We do not sell to North Carolina residents.

I ordered this Kit with the intentions of making distilling one of my new hobbies. I can't tell you how nice the finished still looks when it's cleaned (Tarnex) and shiny. It was a little challenging to construct the still, but after watching the instructional videos numerous times, pausing, rewinding and replaying, I was able to construct it as designed. The kit comes with all the part needed to construct. There is a lot of souldering neccessary, so if you are less than experienced with that, you might find it a bit challenging. I wouldn't consider myself even remotely experienced in the art of souldering but I was able to construct it and I have already brewed 5 batches of product over the last couple months. Making it is the most fun. Having a couple friends over whilebrewing, with the fire pit that's raging and the beverages that are plentiful, is a great way to spend a weekend afternoon.You'll always be the life of the party and the product makes great give-aways gifts. I'm thinking about buying another one just to construct it. And I will be able to do things differently than the first one i.e. a cleaner soulderig job and a little different condenser set up.
I would recommend this to anyone who has a passion for building models and sipping whiskey.

Bought as a gift for my husband. I now rank "best wife ever" :-)
Item must be assembled. It arrives in a large but flat box, about 3" deep you must solder the pieces together. We have owned this still for almost 3 years now end it still works perfectly. It is easy to clean and maintain. We couldn't ask for a better product. Just keep in mind that you will need some extra pieces to put it together but nothing a quick trip to the hardware store can't fix.

Kyle Brown runs the most honest down to earth business, with the best customer service I have ever seen on the Web. If you want the best quality for the money, Buy this still. These kits are dummy proof and work great.

I received the kit on Wednesday, four hours later it was assembled. The next day I cleaned it thoroughly, installed a thermometer and a supply hose, hooked it up to my water supply and tried it out for the first time. Since I didn't have any mash ready I distilled a gallon of inexpensive wine. It worked great! Got a fifth of crystal clear product that measured just under 120 proof.

This thing is super fun and frustrating to build. I do not like the rivets used to construct the barrel and cape. I wish they had used a crimp method like the metal pipes of and HVAC system. With that in mind it was fun to build when I figured out how to do it without an anvil. You have a real sense of accomplishment. Fun project for a couple of buddies to get together and do. If you aren't comfortable with your sweating skills, start with the condenser pipes first or buy a couple extra pieces at a local hardware store to practice on first. I highly recommend a still thermometer (there is a good on Amazon 3" x 1/2" NPT Threaded Stainless Steel Thermometer Moonshine Still Condenser Brew Pot Mash Tun) or you can do the one from ClawHammer. The proofing parrot is an excellent addition/accessory. Thanks Kyle for and excellent fun project.

This 5 gallon still kit was great. I was able to put it together in a few evenings with no problems what-so-ever. All copper parts were precision cut and lined up just as the were supposed to. I followed Clawhammer Supply's online build videos which made putting the still together fun and relatively easy even though I'd never soldered copper before. I highly recommend this kit.

I ordered the kit with no past experience with metal work or soldering, only the ambition that I'll be able to figure it out.

Once the kit arrived, I was incredibly impressed with how precise all of the pieces were cut and fit together. It took me a few hours to assemble (not counting the time it took to watch the videos while I waited for the kit to arrive), but overall the video instructions were very clear and the kit was fairly simple to assemble.

I did run into one snag with some of my poor soldering work that only revealed itself after the whole still was assembled and I was heating some water through the still as a test. Not knowing what the proper fix to my leaky soldering joints was, I emailed Clawhammer Supply and Kyle responded to me within minutes with a thorough and clear explanation of how to fix my problem. It's been a long time since I've experienced this level of customer service.

Overall I am extremely happy with this still kit. All of the parts are precision cut and fit together perfectly and Clawhammer's customer service is outstanding. With a few hours of work you will be able to assemble a beautiful copper still for yourself!
