is there a 'size of the still' rule for this forum?

These are simple stills with no column. Doublers and puke boxes are allowed.

What's the upper size limit for discussion of a still on this forum?

There are 5 main rules here and they are outlined in the rules section linked below. There is no need to put rules on mines bigger than yours as we are not limiting ourselves to hobby discussion.

viewforum.php?f=33

It does us all good to reread them now and then.

I'm glad there isn't a size limit. My still is larger than the "hobby size" on another site. I'm in it as a hobby, but I'm lazy and would rather do larger batches which is less work. "What drinking problem? I drink, I get drunk, I fall down. See, no problem" :D

I will never understand other forums 30 gallon limit. In my experience each barrel produces 36 gallons of beer. That's why the old timers wanted 40 gallon stills.

I learned on my Uncles 40 gallon. That 14 gallon copper inside job I built is three times the work. I'm getting a 40 gallon stainless barrel from somewhere this summer.

I also prefer bigger batches over smaller ones because time is our greatest enemy.

A friend has a SS barrel that came from coca cola. Embossed logo on the barrel.
Must have been for the strong acids they use.
If I didn't have a big boiler I would be using it for sure.
