I think the AHA could publish a statement of support concerning the efforts of a group that is using legal channels to change the law around distilling.  I don't think it is an area the AHA should directly involved in.  This organization has done a tremendous job promoting the legal rights of Americans to brew beer and wine in their home. 

Currently distilling is illegal here in the states and an organization that is promoting a practice that is illegal is standing on awfully shaky legal ground.  I would hate to see the AHA targeted by Federal investigations due to this type of campaign.  I hope they continue to be very cautious on this topic as they have been invaluable to craft brewing community and will continue to be going forward.

I personally would like to see the laws change.  I will support legal efforts to make this happen.  I don't believe the AHA is the correct forum for this effort.  YMMV

Copper pipe works too.  You don't have to use the exact design they published.

They can get bunched up sometimes.  It depends on how vigorous your boil is.  Just lifting the bag and letting it untwist will normally open it back up.

Hot with varying degrees of humidity.  We've been getting rain almost everyday.   Some of the storms have been quite destructive.  Trees down everywhere, a lot of folks still without power after four days and may not have it until the weekend.  Personally, I've been pretty lucky. I have one tree that's been hit by lightning three times. :o

Its been a few years since we got hit by a big nasty wind storm (knock on wood).  Glad to hear you're oka y and didn't sustain much damage.  Storms like those tend to make or break neighborhoods.  I've made some great friendships with people who wondered into my yard with saws and wheelbarrows and vice-versa after a storm.

Stay cool and help where you can.  You'll be paid back many times over (of course you know that already, you're a homebrewer).   ;D

I just got back to work after lunch.  It's 98 outside and no breeze.

I built one of these years ago and did it a little different.  I had extra copper pipe and fittings laying around and this just seemed easy.



The hooks on the sides are 1/4" Peg Board hooks that are inserted in holes drilled in the PVC.

It's getting hot really early this year.  You here complaints at the parade on the 4th when the temp hits 90-95.  This year it's going to be that by half way through and not stopping till 100+.  Another year of drought in Central Iowa.  No rain in the 7 day forecast again this week.

It is keeping my kids (life guards at the aquatic center this year) busy though.  Lots of people looking for ways to stay cool.
