    Old bootlegger trick , to get that aged flavor , add a drop or two of liquid smoke .
    74 , thanks for the link , but not all states are yet activated .
    Arizona’s is pretty straight forward . It is legal to make your own beer , wine , or distilled spirits without a license , provided it is for personal consumption . It is also legal to GIVE it away to family or friends who are 21 or older , no maximum quantity .
    Any home made beer , wine , or liquor , that is made to be sold , must have a business license , and a liquor license . Some federal taxation may also apply in that case .

    Copper has been used for centuries , and still is for that purpose . Right now its very expensive , and stainless is cheaper for production , not necessarily better . Some of the older European distilleries are using copper . Copper does corrode , but it is also one of natures elements bacteria and other bugs dont like . Water stored in copper is safer long term than in steel , especially in area where sanitation is not the best . Any tubing will blow if too much pressure is applied , just make sure you get the right size tubing for the pressures .

    Copper is safe and lead in solder was eliminated back in the 70’s. You could build your own with copper soldering the entire thing together. Stainless you will need a mig or tig welder and some practice. Or you could mix the componets using threaded adapters to transition from one to the other.

    C, By sharps do you mean kinks in the tubing? There are benders that will help prevent kinks from cheap to expensive, just depends on your application.

    Chaga? You mean tinder fungus?

    Go for a walk in the woods. Find a birch tree. Any big lump sticking out on the side of the birch tree that looks like burnt charcoal is chaga. Remove it from the tree and bust it up. Works great in fire pistons and with flint and steel… I keep some in an airtight metal tin, along with some charcloth, a hunk of flint and a fire steel.

    Well, it looks like it, but to the best of my knowledge, chaga doesn’t grow on anything other than birch – paper birch, yellow, white and grey…

    Best thing to do is find a horticulturalist = check with your local University – and ask them to check out what you have found. If you’re gonna use it for tinder, having it be genuine chaga – Inonotus obliquus – is not such a big deal… but if you’re gonna use it for medicinal purposes – like making tea out of it and drinking it, then you really, really need to track down a horticulturalist…

    You don’t need to be wandering the woods, sticking random things in your mouth to see what happens… that’s a good way to end up room temperature.. :)
