We receive a lot of calls from customers asking "what's the difference between the two and which one the best?"
In short, stainless wins for maintenance, cost, and durability.
Stainless steel moonshine distillers are much more durable and very easy to clean. Just use soap and water like you would on your pots and pans, and they will last forever.
Copper is known for its ability to remove sulfides that are produced during the distilling process (one advantage over stainless stills). So to get those benefits with a stainless still, we use a pure copper mesh material to pack the column. Now you have the best of both worlds: benefits from copper but the durability of stainless (and lower cost than copper). And, the copper mesh is easier to take out and clean than trying to clean the inside of a copper still.
As copper is very soft and easy to work with, many people opt to build their own moonshine still using copper. No welding involved, no expensive equipment, and can be made at home.But copper material is very expensive and hard to keep clean.As the copper tarnishes you must clean it with expensive, harsh chemicals.
The equipment to work on stainless may cost quite a bit for a single project to do at home, but the cost of stainless material is significantly more affordable to work with. Even with the cost of our equipment, the savings on our materials is great enough to build a still at a much better price than with copper. So to conclude, stainless wins in more ways than one. Cost, durability, and maintenance free.
Moonshine. Branchwater. Fire water. White lightning. There are many names for homemade alcohol and just as many reasons why a person decides to distill their own spirits. For some, especially in the Appalachians, home distilling is a time honored tradition and family recipes for the perfect sippin' whiskey are closely guarded. Some people see it as a business or a way of supplementing income during hard times. Still others simply like to know what they're drinking; they want control of the ingredients that are used in their moonshine and that type of control can only happen when you're making the product yourself. Along with all those factors, the upswing in the DIY movement, of getting back to the land and becoming more self-sufficient, has led to a resurrection of the time honored craft of distilling moonshine.
The history of distilled spirits is as old as mankind. Virtually every civilization, every country, and every ethnic group, has always had it's own special type of distilled moonshine. It would be safe to say that the hankering for alcohol is a human need, although not exclusively a human desire. Even in nature, animals will seek out fermented fruit to get a little buzz on. Inside a copper still, the alchemy of fermentation turns simple sugars, fruits, and grains into a drink that brings people together in pubs, over dinner tables, at the joy of weddings, and the sorrow of wakes.
Here in the melting pot of the USA cultures from all over the world brought their libations of choice, along with the secrets of how they're made, to Ellis Island. Scotch, Irish whisky, rye, bourbon, rum -- only in America was there such a readily available choice of spirits. Today there are roughly 200,000 moonshiners operating in the US. In spite of that it was, and still is, illegal to make moonshine, largely because commercially produced alcohol is a huge source of revenue for the federal government. Alcohol taxes account for about five percent of the country's revenue. And yet, despite the risks associated with home distilling, which can include hefty fines, jail time, and property seizure, the craft continues to grow. Once an activity that only took place in remote locations under the watchful eye of the moon, people are now distilling in garages, basements, backyards, and spare bedrooms. From the boondocks to suburbia, people are getting their shine on and whether you're a novice or an experienced distiller we have the products you need to get you going on your journey. Let's take a walk in the moonlight.
Mile Hi Distilling has been selling Milk Can alcohol and moonshine Stills since 2006, and is the only company that sells Milk Can Stills at this time. But I believe there will be other companies copying my Milk Can Distillers soon. So, please keep in mind that we were the first and have more experience with the Milk Can Distillers. It's really a shame other companies have to copy us just because they cannot come up with their own ideas. There is a saying that goes, imitation is the best form of flattery. The fact that the other companies want to copy our Milk Can alcohol and moonshine Still prove that this is a great idea.
