Info on cleaning your copper still March 22 2014, 0 CommentsWe have had a lot of feedback, that the blog post I made a while back on how to clean and maintain your copper still was a bit hard to find. I have re-written it, and posted it on our main navigation link, so that it is easier to find on it's very own page. You can find it Here
Clean & Maintenance Pt 2 September 25 2013, 0 Comments
If you use your copper still for distilling moonshine, whiskey, etc at least several times a year, you will only need to clean it with a water distillation.
Using your copper still regularly can cause it to turn a deep red color due to oxidization. To prevent it polish the outside with an non abrasive polisher, making sure that it contains no harmful substances. There are traditional methods, of course, that you can use to clean the pot: moisten a cloth in a solution of salt and lemon juice and rub this over the pot. Proper maintenance of your copper still after distilling moonshine will ensure a long life for it.
