This microstill design and instruction was created to allow someone to make their own spirits. Not a bad tool to have around in a SHTF scenario. I am sure there will be serious addictions that will need to be fed as the stress compiles and resources diminish. You could find yourself with an incredible bartering tool if you are quick to jump on making spirits. Though spirits aren’t the only thing this microstill could produce for you.
When I first read the article or instructions I found that this would be a great option for distilling water. Clean water, depending on the type of disaster, could hold more weight than anything else. There are some basic electronics and things you will have to buy but once you put it together you will also know how to fix it or make more. You could just be the person who sells stills in the post apocalyptic world!
