The 2nd edition of "Designing and building automatic stills"

Read a good book? Any topic is a good one. If it is about moonshine of other spirits, beer, or wine then that is a bonus.

Good job, Riku!

I hope it sells millions, and one will be me.

Enjoyed reading the bits and pieces of info that have referenced your book in the past Riku -- just about enough to keep a guy's interest up. I look forward to getting a copy even if I never attempt a build. I've enjoyed all of the information I've learned in this endeavor and this will definitely advance my basic understanding.

just thinking about this while waiting for the book to arrive - so that is 10 litres of low wines from a pre-stripped 25 litre wash ? and not 10 litres of unstripped wash ? :cry:

10 litres of low wines = the product from a stripped 25 litre wash.

Thank you guys for your kind words. I hope that the latest research wakes up the build bug and inspires you to try new things with your stills :)
