These are really cool. I've heard about someone nearby who has converted 2 old washing machines into a still for making grappa, and I'm itching to go round and see how he's done it.

It's always nice to see so-called 'white goods' being reused.

I made one which we successfully used for a couple of years. Here's a picture guide of how I did it

I have a constantly breaking down machine and have had two new drums fitted in the last two years. They truly are a thing of beauty aren't they?

We use ours as a little outdoor burner in the garden.

And the youngest uses the other one as a (lethal) merry go round! :shock: :pale:
