Building an Ethanol Still

A few years ago, when gas prices were exorbitant, I started to build my own Ethanol Still. In light of the global energy crisis, I figured that being able to produce my own fuel was a useful endeavor. Creating ethanol fuel requires distilling corn (or other vegetables/fruits) and extracting its potential liquid energy. I did some research on the web and discovered the Charles 803 ethanol still. I bought plans and began building the still. Presently, I’ve put this project on hold. Perhaps one day I’ll complete it. Until then, here are some pictures of the project:
