Cover Every Detail

I am on BART, reading a book about petroleum refining over the shoulder of the guy sitting next to me. The chapter he's on right now is about simple distillation techniques, and includes a discussion of a moonshiner's still. There is a drawing of a rudimentary still, with wet rags for cooling at the appropriate spot. Also, a shotgun, for accuracy.
