Good people from “Luxstahl” company Started worrying for my well-being When they saw what kind of a system I use To distill home-brewed vodka And decided to make a present to us They sent us a real hooch still they produce Let’s open it, put it together and try how it works Let’s see what will happen.
Luxstahl 5 still manual.
I’ll read it later if it doesn’t work.
Interesting cooling unit Looks like there’re two of them.
Gland rings And Collars It won’t take much effort to sort it out.
Let’s finish installation of our Luxstahl hooch still.
Looks like it fits here.
Put silicone pad.
And fasten down.
The container is pretty big For 50 liters.
Our chacha (grape brandy) is not ready yet for distilling Today we will distill Champaign that I got from my friends.
Well, friends, Happy New Year!.
Nice Champaign Kind of have a hard time parting with it I can imagine all the comment about it….
Now I’ll connect water cooling up.
After the first stage of distilling We’ll distract all the pure alcohol from our wine material.
The temperature in a pipe reached 60 degrees and we see the first drops 90 degrees and the alcohol is flowing It’s pretty cold.
The grape smell is excellent.
But there’s still some sulphur fume I think after the second stage we’ll get rid of it.
An explosive substance Around 70% alcohol It’s water already We’ve finished the first stage of distilling Let’s see what we’ve got.
We have around 25% alcohol.
This is a 20 liter container So we have around 9 liters of product.
Let’s prepare our still for the second stage.
The manufacturer of LuxStahl still recommends using copper mesh That will help get rid of fusel oils and sulphuric smell.
The whole pipe is full.
Learning is the eye of the mind Not learning is – open your eyes and get to work.
25 minutes passed and we have a stream flowing from our hooch still.
I’ll utilize the first fruit.
Now the alcohol is less than 45% I decided to stop the process Let’s see what we got.
Almost 3 liters of 80% alcohol.
The clouds are piling up on me.
Bacchus is full of joy My eyes are shifty – I want to try it.
Thanks guys. Thank you for such a good device I wish I could drink for your health, but it’s too strong It needs to be watered down and aged Then we’ll have a drink Cheers!.
