Thanks JD, I am planning to install a needle valve although I couldnt find one suitable at the first place I looked. Also a thermometer, maybe right under the catch reserviour? Another thought was to incorporate a outlet line cooler.
I enjoy the building and tinkering as much as the consumption!

Very few components were needed as you can see. Was I correct in trying to ensure all of the condensate falls into the reserviour rather that falling into the packing?
