I have a line on a free operational 1 liter per hour Corning Mega-pure laboratory still. I was thinking of using it to distill water for my brewing. I figure that I will need to come up with a bigger tank to hold between 10 and 20 gallons of water as it will take about 24 hours to distill 5 gallons. Is this worth while? Has anyone else done this?
According to the manual, it utilizes a 1000 W element and uses 8 liters of water per hour to produce 1 liter of distilled water. The other 7 liters are for cooling. I am going to give it a shot. If it doesn't work out, I can always try to sell it on eBay.
