Brew at home kits?

Whos making home brew biodiesel? And what kit are you using? Me and the wife will be looking into getting one very soon and was wanting some opinions and different kits.

Re: Brew at home kits?

just build your own - much less expensive and fairly easy to do - you can go from mild to wild when building one and as simple or complex as you want... but to spend several thousand $$$ on would I feel would be nuts!

Re: Brew at home kits?

You need to titrate the oil before you get all excited about getting an abundunce of it.Take a sample and make sure you can use it for bio.The problem I have with me home brewing is the chemical mix you have to use.I am not one to fallow directions too well.Can you say burn your lungs out or blow yourself up.
