From time to time I -still- look on E-bay for Alembics. Just curious ...no intention to buy whatsoever.
Now this is the most weird -but completely logic- search result I got!
<This alembic is normally used for decoration, but it is fully funcional, if you want to use it
it's a great piece, handmade by a portugaise old craftsman.
It's a fully functional alembic with capacity of 3 liter and made in copper, the union are revited and the copper condensate tube is brazed and securely attached.
Sience this kind of alembic are totally handmade and in the internal unions we use natural products to close the unions to maximize the quality of the destillation, please put the alembic working with a liter of water and some wheat flour before use it.
We thank you for the time you spent with us>
And the picture:
This alembic really invites to say "cheers" ...

The word "alembic" means something like "to distill." I see a few of these things every time I go to e-bay and Alembic. They are kinda cool. Maybe it could be made into a preamp and amp or something.

I am sorry but no.
Now things come completely clear why 8 out of 10 threads on this clun turn partially into a beer discussion.
You know what? After basses, guitars, cabinets, cutting plates, fancy boxes, gobelets, drumkits ...Alembic will start a liquor-line ...yeeee-haaaaa!
Paul the bad one

There's a canary-yellow Art Deco "Alembic" sign from the 1930s on US eBay now, or at least it was there the last time I checked.

I tried to post a message to say never mind I found it but that didn't go through for whatever reason.
Alembic liquor....humm Why not? There's already a Lindeman's beer & wine.
Brother Paul, you should be here for the Guinness stew and Jim Beam pecan pie we're having this weekend. I love this time of year.
