Awesome project! Let's hear that thing!
But is the lit engine then held in the hand like a signal flare would be?Or does it zip around out-of-control like a loose rocket engine?I'm just trying to understand it because it sounds like it would be pretty risky/dangerous to use in a survival situation. But if it functions just like a tiny flare in your hand then that makes sense.
How exactly is the rocket engine deployed? Are you igniting that by hand with a flame??
Can you explain your process for winterizing? I live in Michigan, so I assume that once the temperature gets close to 32 degrees I will simmply need to disconnect the barrels and put them in storage for the winter months?

Thanks for this build. I acquired my barrels (same as yours) a couple months ago but have been procrastinating over different plans. This one is simple and straight forward. I wouldn't have thought to flip the barrels upside down, but I like that much better.I might add a slightly more robust filter on the top of mine, as I'm curious to see if I can harvest drinkable water out of these.
PS - can you clarify - you did not use a special tool to pull the cap out of the bunghole, you just drilled straight through it?
