Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 404 not found. Doh
     
  2. Both work OK for me.
     
  3. Try searching homebrewers and distillers ware house, it is a queensland company, they do a nice line in stainless steel stills and spirit kits, good recipe and how to do manuals

    If you are in the UK, you will need an Excise licence. You wont get one if the volume of the still is less than 18 hectolitres.

    Have a look ar s12 of ALDA79.
     
  5. Also google "The blue flame"

    Aramco got pissed off with people blowing up their accomodation.

    Cheers

  6. Ha, put the liquor in a polythene bottle. Put bottle upside down in freezer. Next day pour off unfrozen liquor into jug, wash ice out of bottle and refill bottle from jug. Repeat until the liquor is strong enough or until no ice. Simples!
     
  7. In general terms You are right, although I know of at least one licensed micro distillery in the UK. However the whole issue of licensing is seen as nothing more than a Government protection racket by many who distil as a hobby. Nothing new there then eh?
     
  8. I'll hunt around and see if I can find it again.

    In Scandanavia, where stills are legal, there is a dirt cheap still available. Basically aload of plastic buckets and tubes.
     
  9. There was a recent thread about the same subject on here. Try the search.
