Where did I see a breakdown of all the different types of stills with their pros and con, like difficulty to build and run?

Start with a pot still, easy to run gives you lots of hands on learning as you grow your knowledge, better to start with a 15 gal because anything less you will want to upgrade to quick. wish i had done that to begin with.

Already using a 7 gallon pot and thumper, with great results (posted in here ). Am ready to upgrade. Just got a 15 .5 gal. keg to increase yield and eliminate the need for flour dough for sealing. Really want to get away from making flour dough to seal pot and thumper every time. Am making whiskey and neutral for infusions and such.I want an easy build and not too complicated to run unit. Packed column , bokabob ,or off set head , really like the simplicity of the Mile Hi unit with the external condenser, easy to run and clean but might be hard to build. All can be de-tuned for flavored spirits. Just have a hard time deciding.I think plated columns and dephlegmaters are out of the question. Something in a two inch for sure.I made a parrot ( posted in here) ,not too bad for my first attempt st soldering.

Keke - set up your PM. I have some things for you to look through.
Age, in and of itself, does not confer wisdom.
Instead, it provides a list of mistakes you hope, profoundly, never to repeat.
