Same here. Just use copper (silver solder brazed) or stainless steel only and an NGS wash. Your eyes or brain are a terrible thing to waste.

If you want our Home Distillers Blog PM me. It's off-topic for here.

It's not off topic for a Liquor thread PM coming your way. Let me know if you didn't get it, the forum was acting weird. I cant tell if it sent...you may have gotten more than one...

Also, just to report, drinking too much causes weight gain! Duh!

Yea, I admitted I stalled, but really had been drinking to excess...just way too much. Like I've said, the bad thing about my alcoholism is it causes no overt social/relationship problems. I dont act a fool, drive drunk, nothing like that. I have the ability to drink so much and until it begins to adversely and obviously affect my day to day health, when I get on a binge (no day-drinking, just every night) it takes something like pain to make me stop.

Well, finally my stomach started bothering me, combined with the scale started bothering me...I stalled at around 187, but after about 4 months of falling off the wagon and drinking a lot of booze, had put on a few pounds. I finally decided to go back to 4 days sober, three nights drinking again, and in those first 4 days dropped the three pounds.

We'll see how it goes forward, but one things for sure, last night (Friday night) it certainly took less booze to achieve the buzz. I need to stay productive outside this time of year when the weather is perfect for working (cutting and splitting wood for the season, etc....home maintenance and repair), so I'm also motivated to not be hungover. That means I'll hopefully keep a handle on it for a while...and maybe lose a few more pounds.

Yeah, I am retired so I sometimes drink before siesta in the hot Summer, but not usually in Winter when I am busy working outside for as much as I can stand. Woodcutting is hard work so I have to pace myself these days even yard work is tiring.

Drinking less eventually makes it affect you more, reduces the tolerance as the liver makes less of the enzyme needed to convert ethanol, so does ketosis. I find beer causes water retention weight gain, but I have one or two on occasion. I don't fancy a cold one in the Winter though -- maybe just a hot toddy If I get a chest cold hot liqueur or tequila w/honey helps.

TIG for thin copper is tricky, can't do thin stuff with my 220VAC DC welder, but it's great around the ranch for stuff. Got your msg, not sure how to respond. Ill give it a try.

Yeah, don't feel like the Lone Ranger. Vodka neat, the only way I like it does a number on my mouth, throat and gut these days. More than a wee bit can make my eyes red and itchy too the next morning. Not worth it IMO

It's also a known staller of weight-loss even if it has Zero carbs and you eat less!

Yep, this is my time of year for woodcutting and exterior home maintenance too. I cant handle the heat of the summer anymore for physical labor.

Thanks for reminding me about the beer. I have half a 12 pack of Michelob Ultra (2.6 grams carbs) in the fridge I keep forgetting about! I'm less likely to drink beer in cold weather too...the beer I like in cold weather is waaayyy too carby! Maybe I'll splurge on one or two this winter for special occasion...
