I mostly do fruit wines. This one's a crabapple cider which has turned out a lovely deep red/orange colour ?

I'll reserve a bottle and take receipt at the next coin fair please. Whats the going rate?

In the UK brewing is fine but distilling is illegal without a license. Weirdly you'll be declined for a license if your largest still is less than 18 hectolitres... So it sucks to be a small fry.

Also I just had to look up what a hectolitre is. It's 100 litres, so you need your still to be at least 1,800 litres or 400 gallons

Used to make wine. One batch of apricot turned into a beautiful liqueur - boy was it strong. Turned out to be the idea drink when I learned my brother was to be a father at a young age and told me in front of our mother at Christmastime! I was over the moon, our mother not so. All's well that ends well😀

The AIrstill is an Australian product but can be bought in the UK. There must be a lower limit that can be produced wthout licence or alternative uses for these but i can't really think of any!

 

It looks exactly the same as the Megahome water distiller sold here for water purification :)

I see it's a different Megahome product actually - it runs on a slower/lower heat cycle (12 hours versus 4 for water).

Just remember to chuck the methanol out if you homebrew, incredibly dangerous stuff and responsible for quite a few deaths from cheap fake Smirnoff etc over recent years:

Im contemplating picking up some gear and doing it again, i remember ( well the mrs remembers 😋) me and my brother (both big lads who can hold our ale ) absolutely smashed on homebrew lager. It was about 7% if i remember right 🤪 we did the keg between us. It went down lovely and no hangover either.

Any advise on the kits you can buy ?

Awesome, I have Sloe Gin on the Go.... Should be ready now, but I will hold off on bottling for Christmas or maybe next year. I always have that going.

I am looking at doing smaller bottles for gifts... instead of large ones for Presents... LOL.

I hope that makes sense.
