    Alcohol "Still" needed

    How's it, after cleaning the house over the last few days I've found a rum wash that I put away to clear off, three years ago !! Tested it and it's sitting at 8-9% and smells good. Problem is I have sold my two stills and don't really want to buy another, just run this wash through does anyone have a still either reflux or pot I can hire borrow use etc ?????
    cheers Terry

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    put it into plastic containers like milk bottles. put it in the freezer. next day beat it into slush and pour off the alcohol. leaving the water content behind. works well but a little time consuming

    I'm the same Rushy, Gin,we had a session on it years ago, late 70's, and my mate who was driving the AP5 threw up all over the dashboard and windscreen.
    Never liked the smell of it since.

    Now I have consumed a good bit of your spirits. Why don't you tuck your still under your arm, strap a couple of your empty bottles to your feet and light the fumes. You would be in Auckland in minutes!
