new 2 gallon , copper moonshine still ,. new copper moonshine still all hand made . As most of you know, copper is the preferred material in the construction on any moonshine still.

It is all cooper in appearance. It comes apart at all the bends and joints; but it is pretty difficult to get them apart because of the rubber-like substance that seals them. The very top portion of the base of the still comes off, and the wide-mouth mason jar for the thumper portion comes right off for easy cleaning.
The positives: you can now make your essential oils, distill water, or distill alcohol at a fraction of the price in the stores. This works very well, and is not horrible to clean. The alcohol that I have made has been very smooth ( I guess that depends on your recipes right?) and I have also even made some vanilla extract with it. I have rave reviews and even I will drink the stuff, and I am not a drinker.
The negatives: they are minor to me. It is somewhat difficult to clean the big base because there is an inside lip that sediment from your must kind of gets caught up in. We use our spray nozzle on the sink to clean it out, but I dont think it comes out perfectly clean. Drying, I am sure, is not perfect either because water can get stuck in those little ledges on the inside. The tubing part down to the bucket pretty much stays one piece and gets cleaned separately, and seems to be ok. The bucket that has the spicket is getting rusty on the inside from having water not fully dry out of it. We have had this about 8 months. We have to scrub it out good each time. The rusty parts dont touch the actual product, they are on the outside where you put ice to cool it in the last bit of pipe. The other thing is that we would like the bucket to tip slightly forward so the alcohol drains out of the tubing better near the end so we put a little trivet on the back of the bucket to tip it forward. It takes a time or two to make a product that you like, and you just have to figure out how to cheaply make a product you like.
You will have to put a flour water dough mixture around the seal in the base where it comes apart so it seals good. It takes two seconds. None of the other joints need sealing like some of the other stills out there. Maybe it doesnt even really need that but we do that anyway. It seems to get the temp up quicker. The thermometer works good. All the sites that I looked on said to bring it up to 183 degrees but it works better at around 200 degrees. Water boils at 212, so its a pure product that is still coming out at 200. This still, when full, will give you about a half gallon of roughly 180 (? I think thats about what it is) proof alcohol. We dilute ours to about a gallon and it is roughly 90-100 proof and it is perfect. Than I put my spices to infuse in it.
All in all, its affordable and thats what matters to me. It may not be perfect, but it was made well and I dont really have any problems that some other stills have had. I just make my stuff and it is good. If my electricity goes out, I can distill water for emergencies.
