Just finished my first steam distillation of some Cascade whole-leaf hops. Got around 10 mL of oil from 1/3 lb. Will do some work in the future with various plants to see what this thing is capable of.

Hey, i am thinking of making a steam still to extract hop oils. How did the oil you made here perform in brews?
