Behold the copper moonshine still for home-distillation from Clawhammer Supply, a small company started by one guy who really likes beer.
The coolest part? You build the still yourself. With the kit, you’ll get pre-drilled machine-cut parts, copper rivets, plus all the required pipe and fitting. Grab a hammer, a plumbing torch, a small spool of lead-free plumbing solder, some pliers, sandpaper, and maybe a vise—oh, and your computer to follow the step-by-step online videos.
A few hours later, and you’ve got a five-gallon moonshine still.
There’s no better charger than the sun—at least if you’re trekking in the middle of Montana and the next wall outlet is 30 miles away. The following solar chargers are portable, durable, and should provide enough juice to keep your gadgets going all day long. But keep in mind you’ll need bluebird skies and some extra time on your hands—solar charging can take up to 10 hours or more, even on a good day.
