      I have a 1gal claw hammer design now. Thinking of a bigger still. Will a stainless still make the finished product much different? I want to stay with a pot still.

      I personally have always used a copper pot- I currently use the clawhammer 10 gallon still.

      If you are going to use stainless I would suggest using as much copper as possible in the column- I would also pack the column with copper as well. Many folks (including small startups) use stainless pots with copper columns.
      If you can afford copper go that route- if not go stainless and use as much copper as you can elsewhere.

        Is the 10gal hard to clean? How big is the opening? You would have to get your arm into the still for cleaning, won’t you?
