    I hope that solder is lead-free. Hate to see you guys lose your “edge” mentally. %^).

    Definitely lead-free, is plumbing solder we had around here from numerous projects. Good thing to pay attention to!

    Shouldn’t there be more condensation coils?

    DIY snowmobile fuel?

    Next season on moonshiners we meet the father and son combo who make ‘shine to fund their winter skiing exploits…

    Gloor, the unit has a water cooled sleeve, that’s what the two extra stubs are, looks like it’ll work unless the evaporation from the mash exceeds that cooling capacity of the sleeve. Unfortunately we have to head out to OR show before the first Marble Crude bubbles up.

    what are you using for a mash?

    Next season Moonshiners meets up with Street Outlaws and introduces SkitchTruck, a 800 lb thrust everclear turbine Duramax. If you do the afterburner assembly correctly, you should be able to double your thrust.

    Is this the genesis of a Skintrack Empire?

    Quite a “weedburner” you’ve got there. At least keep it in Colorado, land of the free and stoned.

    ps. why wouldn’t this post go through when I entered moleskin to the spam question?

    Ralph, we haven’t finalized a mash idea. We tried to get some from a local shop run by some stoners, that didn’t work out too well, we’ll probably use grocery store stuff per web ideas. I’d like to make something that tastes half decent, instead of just making rotgut throat burner, so we’ll see.
