Why kegs for distilling boilers?

Some home distillers use milk cans, others use pots or barrels.
You cannot go
past a beer keg used or new.
They are usually around 14 or 16 gauge Stainless Steel, so
they will last you a lifetime.

You can do anything to a keg from a four inch cleanout,
chopping it in half and welding
another keg on top to make it 30 gallons.

The only downside to a keg is it is hard to cleanout,
that is why I suggest weld a four
inch ferrule to the top of the keg and a four inch
cleanout on the side of the keg, so
now you have two points of entry to clean the keg.
You can order a keg with cleanout
from us, or even a window cleanout kit. If you
do not have cleanout, you go to carwash
and use a high pressure hose.

Have a look at my Deluxe Lazy Boy. You can
choose to make your own keg boiler by
tig welding. If you know someone that can weld,
you can order the fittings from us,
and then have them do this for you.

You can make these electric by placing heating
elements on the sides that screw
into a coupling that is welded to the keg. Or
you can use this with a stand over
propane or open fire for those more experienced.

Kegs are cheap to get, you have to release
the pressure. There are plenty of
youtubes on how to do this. To
remove the spear and sanke. THIS IS UNDER
ALOT OF PRESSURE. If you do
this incorrectly, you can hurt yourself or someone
close. Take precaution.

Does it look nice? When a keg is
polished, it looks brand new, they come
up quite nice. You can also request a
never before used keg, not even for beer.

They are easy to repair if anything happens.
Mostly they are maintenance free.
I sell refurbished boilers, but lately I have
been sending out brand new ones, never before used.
It is just when I run out I use used kegs, so I always
state they are refurbished, just in case.
Is there a risk of scorching? Very low
unless you have a high BTU burner going full tilt
and less than 1/3 liquid in the boiler.
When you get to 202-204 you are into your tails end of the
run.
