How (not) To Make Brandy

I have obviuosly never done this as it is illegal here in Bulgaria, as it is in most
countries (honest). If like me you have attempted to make homemade and country wines, and they have turned out to be, not quite the tipple you were
expecting. They can be easily turned into spirit. I should point that you shoud not do this, or follow the instructions, I take absolutely no
responsibilty for idiots who blow themselves up following these instructuions. REPEAT DO NOT FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS

Allegedly this is how you do it. I brought the equipment purely so I could take pictures of the process, and they have never actually been used for distilling
my parsnip wine.

Equipment

  • A sealable container with only one point of exit for the steam (like a pressure cooker). Mine is made from an old washing machine.

    A still made out of an old washing machine

     

  • An copper tube and cooling station, to condense the steam back into liquid

    Condenser

  • Lots of not so good homemade wine. I make mine in old 10 litre water bottles.

    My Parsnip Wine

When it is all put together you get a fire going under your still, the alchohol evaporate before the water, this then
condenses in you condeser and is collected as ‘brandy’ of sorts. Here is mine put together for demonstartion purposes only.
You will notice that this is done outside, a homemade pressure cooker, filled with alcohol would be like a hand grenade if done in side!!
Who says a physics degree is worthless!

Demonstration of a still

After making your brandy or rakia as it is known in Bulgaria, you have to throw it away as it is illegal.
