Make Your Own Moonshine With This Copper Still Starter Kit

You know, I was just thinking the other day maybe I should start making my own liquor. I was just going to use the bathtub, but then I saw this 5 Gallon Pure Copper Alembic Still built by Copperholic and available for sale on Amazon (affiliate link). The traditional still costs $400 and comes with everything needed to get you up and bootlegging in no time. I can already close my eyes and imagine I’ve gone blind after drinking a bad batch.

Liquor not your cup of tea? You can also use the still for hydro or steam distillation of essential oils. Those are all the rage right now, you know. I’m going to set up a booth at the farmer’s market and make a fortune selling my own home-distilled essential oils above the table, and rotgut liquor beneath the table. Cha-ching!

I don’t really understand the process of moonshining, but I’m sure the internet can point me in the right direction. Or, as is the case more often than not, the very wrong direction. Either way, come over in about ten days because I am going to need a taste-tester.
