10 Gallon Moonshine Still Kit

We've had a ton of requests for a simple video on how to distill with our moonshine still kits.  It may seem counter intuitive, but we've resisted for a few reasons.  First, there is already a lot of information out there on distilling using just about any kind of still imaginable (column stills, pot stills, fractioning stills, reflux stills, etc, pressure cooker stills, keg stills - you name it). Also, there is a lot to learn on the topic of distilling.

As always, feel free to call or email us with questions on this article or questions about our moonshine still kits.
