Thing is, the pipes will be polished smooth and I don't know what would stick.to such a smooth surface. Any ideas? Or I could just tear it down and repolish it from time to time but I don't really want to do that.
There's such a thing as copper/brass sealant. Once it's polished, you just apply the stuff and it should hold shiny for ages.
I did that for my moonshine still a year or so ago, and it's still shiny.
edit: another term for it that some use is brass lacquer. I dunno if it's a colloquial term, but it's used sometimes here in the Deep South Edited by Seredin - 3/7/13 at 9:24am
