I haven't updated because i ended up in the hospital for a few things--I'm fine now but have abandoned the project because i am quite weak now-- just wanted to update i have the 3 PIDs the 18 inch clear plastic box ready to be assembled with the controls and wiring; but i will be doing a bit of wine and liquor making from now on-- vodka is first on the list if i fire up the still again.

Sorry to hear about your hospital stay but glad to see you're home again. Maybe you could find a stronger still hand around to help out for the knowledge. Sure would like to see the finished automatic still BigGrin
