Q 3. A3. There isn't a privately owned still in this country that will put out 60 gph! A 20 gallon wash still takes about 2 hours at 190 degrees and a chilled worm to put out a gallon. Thats with a double 5/8" worm. I hope that helps. (the above tutorial is purely hypothetical and should not be construed as first hand knowledge)[;)]
