At its simplest, a 2"(nominal) copper riser (column) is practical for a
number of reasons. I like a 3/4" lyne arm, and for my propane burner, a
30"-long 1/2 inside 3/4 liebig works fine. Height of the riser depends
on how much flavor you want to extract (short riser), and whether you
can fit your lyne arm in a short-lyne-arm geometry. My latest 2" riser
is about 20", either on my 5-gallon or my 16-gallons still.

what the requirements - if any - of the different diameters and lengths
of column pipe according to the size of the still? Does anyone have this
info or know where I can get it? OR does it matter? Thanks!
