Copper stills have been used for distillation since the 14th century. The copper bath stills were first developed by the French and the English in the latter part of the seventeenth century. The first copper still was used to make gin and ale.
Copper is a precious metal that has been used throughout history for a variety of different applications. One of the most popular uses for copper stills is for cooking. Because of the value of this metal, many distillers that produce stills in this form will be very expensive. However, if you are looking for a pot to serve moonshine or any other type of alcoholic drink, you may want to consider purchasing a traditional copper still.
A copper pot still is most often used for mashing potatoes into mash. If you are interested in making moonshine then you will need to have a copper still in order to do so. You can purchase a copper still online or in some distiller shops. You will be able to also find copper stills at craft shops. There are even some places that sell antique stills.
Different types of alcohols can be put into a copper pot still. Distilled spirits, such as scotch or whiskey, are typically placed into a copper pot still to produce steam. In order to release the alcohol, a funnel is placed into the distilling process. As the steam rises, it will turn into steam again, creating a head. This is one way that distillers are able to create a higher level of alcohol in their mixtures.
One of the benefits of copper stills is that they can be made to be extremely precise. When using copper stills in distillation, you will want to have precision equipment. This equipment allows for very precise distillation which is important for creating homemade wines and ales. In order to have precision equipment, you will have to purchase and learn about lead free soldering.
When purchasing your copper moonshine still, you will need to know what the weight of the product is. The weight of the product is measured in ounces. If you buy a unit that is larger than the amount of copper you will need to purchase, then you might end up having too much excess lead in your mixture. In order to avoid having too much lead in your mixture, you should only buy units that contain an ounce for every five gallons of water.
