#1 The still they built, and the still in the exploding shack are TWO DIFFERENT STILLS! F*** YOU! Can we MAKE a still explode - yes, with some purposeful modifications. Will it happen naturally - no. SMH Didn't even show what kind of fuel they put in there, or if they even DID put fuel in the still. There's not even a heat source under the boiler (the stainless steel part at the bottom). They just put a still in a shack, filled the shack with some unknown vapor and applied an electric arch to cause an explosion. FAAAAAAAKE!

It is NOT due to a clog. That wouldn’t cause a fire, just a burst. They introduced the heat source and that made it explode

close up a pressure vessel and heat it up enough and it blows up. nothing to do with a still at that point though.

That's why you just build a lean too like structure for your moonshine. It still wouldn't be nice to be near one when it goes off but at least the blast won't be contained.

some bs, most stills have a lose "horse-head" that would popp of when presurre builds and only a complete idiot would have a airtight shack (and sitting next to it instead of watching it!) to do so! and soory for mei spelling, just had a shot of sunshine or something wehn wachting tish..

This was a complete failure. The still was just fine after the intentionally staged and ignited "explosion". They unwittingly busted the myth that stills are dangerous. It seems to me that their ride in the car to the "proving ground" was a great deal more dangerous, way to go MythBusters!

i'm very disappointed in this video. you didn't answer the question: can a moonshine still really be explosive? you simply made a bomb. This was a horrible video. Lost all credibility.

Highly highly unlikely. You would have to be a complete moron for this to happen naturally.

Nothing about this one is right.. sorry guys you fucked this one up
'gotwoh3ll' 7 months ago
Really.. a clog.. no..... it a due to a leak that finds an open flame and at most it will just flare. you really think vaper create a clog in a 1" line your on crack or being paid by the atf

Yeah Mythbusters.  No blockage of a still's worm just miraculously occurs like you just did.  Stills are safe.  How much did the ATF pay you to put out this propaganda that distilling alcohol is dangerous?

"Can a moonshine be explosive"? WHAT??? What does that mean?? U mean can a moonshine "STILL" be explosive? Moonshine is the alcohol that's made,a Still is what makes it. SMH
