Weather you purchased your still or made it yourself you need to distill a couple gallons of water through it to clean it and more importantly check it for leaks. A leaky still is extremely dangerous. Once this is done you are ready to make some hooch. Here we go.
Fill up the boiler and turn on the heat. I use propane. Crank it up good. A five gallon wash heated with a propane fish cooker will heat to 172F in about 45 minutes. Electricity could take an hour or more. While the wash is heating be getting the rest of the Still together and sealed up.
