Hi Everyone,  I own a distillery in Oregon.  I am working on a new still design, and want to make it interesting to look at as well as functional.  I will use a variety of components in stainless steel, copper, and some brass.  I s there anyone here interested in brainstorming a bit?  I have a few preliminary drawings I can post...

I'd like to see the drawings.
I've been toying with the idea of a small column still for personal use so it's an interesting subject for me. I would steam it up a little of course.
I probably would have made it by now but I want to use 3" DWV pipe and it only comes in 20' lengths here.

You have to put your own pictures on the internet first, (say photobucket, or similar) then link them to this topic for them to be seen by the rest of the world!

Just a few questions, if you don't mind?

1) What is the name of your distillery?
2) Who will own the copywrite for the design & for how long for?
3) How much will the designer be paid?
3a) How will they get paid?

BTB please show us your designs.

Copper, copper, copper, and the some more copper. That's all I can say. We have a wonderful restaurant/brewery in Austin called "North by Northwest, ironically themes after Pacific Northwest warehouse. Lamps and chandeliers made with industrial lamp shades and plenty of steel pipes.

Wonderful food. Naturally the beer needs to match. Their malty ales are some of the best I have ever had.

Copper kettles and oak barrels.
non of this Stainless steel nonsense.
Brass is ok for pressure holding vessels as its used for the heads of fire extinguishers.
