A FEW OF MY "SPECIAL" PROJECTS

SPECIAL PROJECTS

Often I find myself at scrapyards (where I spend more time than I care to admit) where I buy stuff that I think(!) I can use to build something distilling related but I don't know what yet and then, some day, I eventually figure it out and make a "special project" of it. These are just two of my many "special projects".

LARGE GIN STILL
I found this old milk filter (and it's parts) in a bin at the scrapyard one day and immediately liked it so much that I just had to take it home. It sat in my scrap bin for years and one day a guy with a brewery asked me about a Gin Still. The light bulb went on in my head, and I decided to build a Gin Still out of the milk filter and mount it on an old keg I had lying around. This still also had a removable botanicals basket and can be used to make Essential oils.

HEADMASTER POT STILL HEADS
I built these Pot still heads as a special project to make a pot still that would be able to stand up to heavy use and abuse. This was an all stainless pot still head with Tig-welded joints and a flush thermowell. It had a double wound copper condenser inside the head. It was easy to take apart and clean and very few parts outside that could be damaged. Only 10 of these pot stills heads were built and I sold 9 and kept one for myself. I stopped making them as they were expensive and very labour intensive to build.

Designed to fit on T500/Copperhead boilers.
