Pete B. – Rhode Island WARNING! Not all stills are created equally. Are we the cheapest company out there? No we are not, BUT we do produce the highest quality stills that money can buy. We are called DIY Moonshine, but that name isn’t really accurate. The truth is we do it for you! There is no welding, soldering or fabricating required on our stills! Most stills that are offered for sale are flimsy and made out of cheap 16 ounce roofing copper. Those moonshine stills will not hold up. Every still we build is constructed out of thick 20 ounce 99.9% pure copper. This is the best copper money can buy. All of our stills have a very high amount of silver content.

How much whiskey will a 13 gallon still make?
Let’s start with our most popular tower, the Dual Purpose alcohol moonshine distiller: – The Dual Purpose is an all-around great piece of equipment. It’s named because obviously it has two purposes. It can be ran as a pot still for whiskies or brandies, and as a reflux still for high purity spirits.
An 8 Gallon Dual Purpose,A 13 Gallon Dual Purpose,An 8 Gallon two-piece Dual Purpose,An 8 Gallon Dual Purpose with a Gin Basket And an 8 Gallon Copper Dual Purpose.
The 8 Gallon will hold about 6.5 Gallons of a distilling wash, making about 1 gallon of distillate, while the 13 Gallon holds close to 10 Gallons. Really, what it comes down to when picking the right Dual Purpose, is how much you’re looking to make. An 8 Gallon will make about a quart of distillate per hour and you’ll end up with about a gallon to a gallon and a half of product when finished.
- The 13 will work at the same output (a quart an hour) but end up producing around two gallons to two and a half gallons.
- This is estimated and depends on what the alcohol by volume ( ABV ) that is in the wash and what proof you want to run.
- Final yield also depends on your cuts.
- See blog article about making cuts.
For the two-piece, the only difference is it’s with the removable bottom extension, which will make it better when making whiskey, as the shorter column carries over more flavor. If you’re looking for a tower that can do both neutral spirit making and whiskey/brandy making but would like to emphasize more on whiskey making, this is a great option for you.
- Even better for moonshiners looking to emphasize on making whiskey while having the freedom of neutral spirit is the Copper Dual Purpose looks sweet and has more copper in the vapor path.
- This is great when making neutral spirit, brandies, and whiskies.
- The copper dual is a beautiful tower with all the capabilities of the stainless steel one, but adds the benefit of more copper to pass through during your run.
The copper dual comes stock with an upgraded thermometer as well which gives a higher-end look. The Dual with Gin Basket is a reflux fractionating column that breaks down into three different parts. A bottom extension with a reflux jacket built in will start off the column.
How much whiskey does 10 gallons of mash make?
Collection efficiency – One final note is that all of the alcohol produced during fermentation will not be collected during the run. Generally only about 85 or 90% is collected because it takes too much time and energy to get the last little bit.and it isn’t the good stuff anyway.
A 1 gallon run with a starting alcohol of 10%, a final proof of 100, and a collection efficiency of 85% will yield 2.72 cups. A 1 gallon run with a starting alcohol of 20%, a final proof of 100, and a collection efficiency of 85% will yield 5.44 cups. A 5 gallon run with a starting alcohol of 10%, a final proof of 100, and a collection efficiency of 85% will yield,85 gallons. A 5 gallon run with a starting alcohol of 20%, a final proof of 100, and a collection efficiency of 85% will yield 1.7 gallons. A 8 gallon run with a starting alcohol of 10%, a final proof of 100, and a collection efficiency of 85% will yield 0.89 gallons. A 8 gallon run with a starting alcohol of 20%, a final proof of 100, and a collection efficiency of 85% will yield 1.79 gallons. A 10 gallon run with a starting alcohol of 10%, a final proof of 100, and a collection efficiency of 85% will yield 1.7 gallons. A 10 gallon run with a starting alcohol of 20%, a final proof of 100, and a collection efficiency of 85% will yield 3.4 gallons.
Remember, it is illegal to distill alcohol without the proper permits. Kyle Brown is the owner of Clawhammer Supply, a small scale distillation and brewing equipment company which he founded in 2009.

Does whiskey grow in value?
Most collectible bottles are over 10 years old and value usually increases with the age of the whisky. Whisky over 30 years old is the most sought after as it is the rarest. Any whisky bottled at over 50 years old is highly desirable and a very limited number of distilleries have released whisky over 50 years old.
How much should I discard when making moonshine?
How to Remove Methanol from Moonshine – One way a commercial distiller would determine the presence of methanol is to monitor still temperature, If anything is produced by the still before wash temperature reaches 174 degrees, it’s methanol. A commercial distiller will discard it.
Again, methanol boils at a lower temperature than ethanol and will concentrate at the beginning of distillation runs. Additionally, commercial distillers have determined that simply discarding a standard amount per batch, based on batch size, is enough to keep things safe. The rule of thumb is to discard 1/3 of a pint jar for every 5 gallons of wash being distilled.
How much initial product to discard:
1 gallon batch – discard the first 2/3 of a shot glass 5 gallon batch – discard the first 1/3 of a pint jar 10 gallon batch – discard the first 3/4 of a pint jar
Regardless of still temp, it’s a good idea to always follow this rule of thumb. Methanol or not, the first stuff to come off the still tastes and smells like rubbing alcohol. It’s by far the worst stuff in the entire production run and it isn’t going to impress anyone.

What is the strongest moonshine you can make?
What Is The Highest Proof Moonshine – The highest proof moonshine you can make using distillation will be 191 proof (95.5% ABV). That’s because alcohol begins to attract moisture from the air at concentrations higher than 96% ABV, immediately diluting your moonshine.
How much moonshine do you get from a 10 gallon still?
1. How much shine can I expect to produce when I run my still? – This is the question on everybody’s mind when they purchase a still. It is all mathematics, and some people give answers based on “funny” math. The truth is dependent upon your mash. The fermentation process, prior to the distillation process, will REALLY determine how much you should expect to yield.
On average, a decent ABV (alcohol by volume) during the fermentation process should be around 10% to 15%. We have heard of people boasting about upwards of 20% ABV, but in reality you are shooting for somewhere between 10% & 15% ABV, and here’s why: alcohol & carbon dioxide are by products of the fermentation process (when yeast eat sugars).
The higher the ABV the yeast has to live in, the more stressed they get, and eventually will die off. At about 18% ABV, for most yeast strands, they become very stressed due to their living conditions. They will give off foul smells and flavors around this ABV.
- The trade off for really high ABV (16% or higher) is, higher alcohol/shine that isn’t worth drinking from a taste perspective.
- We recommend shooting for an ABV of 10% to 15%.
- At this range you get a great tasting, smooth shine.
- While there are always exceptions to the rule, and other minor variables, the easiest method is to multiply whatever size still you want by 10% and then 15%.
You will then have an honest answer on how much shine to expect. So for example: A 10 gallon still filled with your wash that is 10% ABV will yield you about 1 gallon of shine. If your ABV is 15% it will be 1.5 gallons. No matter what still you put it in to extract the alcohol out during the distilling process, you can’t argue with the math.
Is it worth it to make moonshine?
Final Thoughts – There are certainly a lot of risks associated with making moonshine, and these may be enough to deter you from the task. However, there’s undoubtedly fun, freedom, and creativity involved in making your own. If the value of the experience outweighs the risks, it may be worth it to you to give making your own moonshine a shot.
