    C,
    A google search brings up a lot of them. My guess is the copper or stainless products are the better ones. Just a guess. It’s a heck of a trade item if you decide to make moonshine or whiskey though.

    You could aways make a Gingery still. His book with detailed plans is for sale. Its cheaper to buy the Everclear. I can get the 190 proof here. In fact it burns pretty good in cooking stoves.

    Brulen , my brother in law is a Pharmacist , he brought home 200 proof alcohol from the lab . He gave me a shot of it , I thought it was vodka , it didnt burn at all going down , but it made you cough a lot because it was evaporating while you drank it lol . Not a lot of people today know this , but during the prohibition era , you could still legally get a bottle of booze from the drug store if you had a doctors prescription . It was called medicinal alcohol whiskey . If you can find an old bottle of that …………..its worth money !!!!

    C, I’m not suggesting for you not to make your medicinal extracts. I just thought you might have additional capacity if you bought the right still.

    Couple of things.

    1: Go big or go home. Its just as hard to make 5 gallons as 20 (50?).
    You just need more supplies and a little more time.

    2:It doesn’t go bad. That extra 15 gallons you made over the 5 for tinctures and tonics, is there for snakebite, trade, alcohol stoves, and much more. And it reduces the number of “runs” you have to make, reducing risk.

    3: Your still can distill and purify water, your whole reason for buying it. Hint, hint.

    4: Recipes, get em while you can. Dont limit yourself to corn likker, add brandy, vodka and other spirits to the list.

    5: If you do it, don’t tell anyone. No one needs to know your source is you.

    Was that you making vanilla extract with whole beans on youtube, Miss C? We talked about everclear and you said it was illegal for you to buy. I had no idea you were so young! Not that I’m “old” ;)
