screw it... make a real still.
You want flavour? Pot still (up to 150 proof)
You want something that'll put hairs on your chest? reflux still (up to 192 proof)
in NZ it's all legal so don't worry about it. if yuo want to buy one you're looking at $250 (NZ currency) minimum... search 'pot still' on trademe.co.nz - some ok ones going for $275.
Same goes for reflux, but a little more expensive.
You don'y want to spend that much? then THIS
is what I'm making. Easy as pie. Bit of copper pipe, a pressure cooker or a stock pot and a bowl and a bucket of cold water.
After that, you can distill anything alcoholic you like... most people start off with that powdered stuff you use to make mash for beer - it has everything yeast needs to do it's thing, already. Most, however make their own mash... Common recipes are something like, 2kg corn, 5kg sugar, 20L water (dissolve sugar in it) and a couple of tablespoons of bakers yeast. Should give something about 7-10% and you can get some niiice flavor by running that through a pot still a couple of times.
Good luck. Don't use an open flame. Make sure the seals on your pot still aren't stronger than the marterial around them, or when something goes wrong there'll be an explosion with shrapnel, instead of a seal popping. And for crissake DO NOT drink the first 100ml to come out of a 20L run. That shyt will make you throw up and go blind.
