Can I use a water distiller to make moonshine?!

Question: Can I use a water distiller to make moonshine!?
Hypothetically speaking, of course!.!.!.

I'm familiar with the process of making it and how a still works!. So, I thought, could someone use a water distiller instead of the traditional copper ones!? The only problem I could come up with would be the fact that it's not made of copper, and the strong alcohol vapors might damage the tubes meant to be used with water vapor!.

Take this one for example!.!.!.


You may or may not be able to!. It may be the case as you said that strong alcohol vapors damage the plastics!.

Regardless of whether or not the plastic would get damaged, I wouldn't use a water distiller!. Why!? Because it wouldn't be very effective!. A water distiller works well for water because the impurities are mainly in the form of solids dissolved in the water!. Boiling the water easily leaves those solids behind!. Impure alcohol, on the other hand, contains many liquid impurities!. Boiling the alcohol also boils the other liquids and they come along with it and aren't removed!. Commercial distilleries use fractioning stills to overcome this!. Basically the fractioning still allows the vapors to condense and run back down the still, thus enriching the vapors and creating separation between the different vapors!. As a result they become separated and thus you can just get the alcohol you want!.

If you're interested in the process you should google the book "Making Gin and Vodka" by John Stone!. You should be able to find a free ebook copy of it!.Www@FoodAQ@Com


i'm really not sure if you can or not; because of every video I have watched about making moonshine; I mean wouldn't it be easier to just use the water filter!? for making moonshine but I think it's more to that than using that water distiller!.
