pot stills are incredably simple to make with a trip to a hardware store. basicly you just need a container hooked up to a condenser coil and your done.
reflux stills are more complicated. in a nutshell, the vapors condense while still inside the tower on 'scrubbers' then are re-vaporized(boosting the alch. content) and travel up the tower, only to condense and repeat continously inching up the column. by the time it gets to the top its the equivilant of being pot-distilled 'infinate' times.
so basicly its a pot with a tall tube full of something with alot of surface area, then a collection cup and spout at the top. the top is often cooled to help with the final condensation.
just make sure everything you use is food-grade. and NO LEAD SOLDER.
homedistiller.org is the best site IMO
