Like the pot man. Nice work. What size is the thumper? Looks a little on the small side.

Just looked at your original post and you already said it was three :doh: My apologies.
Nice setup man. I have always liked the traditional look of a barrel thumper.

Could help our necks if you don't tilt the image... :wink:
Looks quite good...do you have a abundance of copper plate lying around your shop? :D
How do you seal it to the keg?

Pushed my old still to new limits and learned a lot. ..ran it slow in the beginning then in the middle of the run cranked up the heat ... had a berry brandy wash that came off with an amazing amount of flavor. .. :!:

Download Picasa (free) and use the left or right arrows underneath the pictures to rotate, then export... or turn the camera 90 degrees to the right. :mg: or would that be left?
