no kits, but seriously cheap if you don't mind waiting a week or 3 for shipping

That's a pretty darned good idea, even from a registered smart-ass. Give it a try and post it. I love solving problems with information.

...and Kapea? Don't pay any attention to my smart-ass mouth - it's genetic, I think.

(Is it overkill to use "smart-ass twice in one post?)

There is a vendor on here that imports quality custom still parts from China and ships from the US (read: days, not weeks for delivery)... Dang it, the name escapes me at the moment though... :wink:

I've spent some time on it already. It'll be a bit rough but I'm using an online tool (That's not a reference to Kapea) so that maybe it can be edited by interested parties.

it is a little pricey, but I would recommend http://www.Intoxicologyinc.com gauging calculator. You get blending and temperature adjusted proofing too. It's not me and I don't work for the man but the stuff is good.
Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.
