Hi, I'm Kyle Brown. I'm a building science professional by day, coppersmith by night, and an old timey fiddler (think O Brother Where Art Thou) on the weekends...
My love for beer (Mmmmm... I love beer) led me to the wonderful hobby of home brewing. My personal tendency to gravitate towards "bigger, better, and more challenging" led me to home distillation. My picky, stubborn, and arrogant side decided that a copper still was the only acceptable vessel for my craft. Finally, the fact that I am one cheap bastard (not really, I spend money like its going out of style, I just don't have enough of it!) necessitated that I find an affordable still - or build my own. Unfortunately, while browsing the web in early 2009, I couldn't find any products that met my specifications: high quality, all copper, and inexpensive. Thus, I created the Clawhammer Supply Company to fill a need: To provide the highest quality, most affordable, all copper moonshine stills in the home distillation market.
I've spent the last two years perfecting the designs of Clawhammer's premium, pure copper moonshine still kits. I've also gathered an abundance of information about the craft of home distilling. I hope to use this site not only to provide high quality, affordable still kits, but to also provide as much free information as possible on the art of home distilling. I hope you enjoy the products and information in the store, blog, etc... I would also love to hear from you. Come on over to the Clawhammer Supply Facebook page and talk some whiskey with me! But make sure not to leave before taking a gander at our our collection of premium, all copper moonshine still kits.
