Cleaning the Still

     As we've described in previous posts, distilling alcohol is done with a remarkably similar process that has been used for hundreds of years.  Part of this process involves the heating and cooling of the liquid, during which it travels through long copper tubes.  It's a surprisingly tedious and time-consuming process.  But even more tedious is the careful care that must be taken to ensure that these tubes remain in perfect operating condition.

     Here's Lynn Chadwick taking apart a section of the tubes to be cleaned out with a sanitizing solution, and have the interior copper mesh replaced.  This simple, but tedious process is repeated every two weeks to ensure quality remains consistent.

     Well, that's all for now!  Everyone at Doom Forest Distillery are hoping you are having a great start to the New Year!
