with some that had Mason jars (canning jars, here in the States) as a
thumper. It can put a little backpressure in your boiler and swan
neck, but its not that great.........depending on how deep the supply
line is in the liquid level of the thumper.
Thumpers will heat up during use, and from what I've read, that's
where there inherent value is. To be honest, I've not used one, so
maybe one of our colleagues in the group could answer better than I.
PS - Do check out that homediistiller.org website. It's PACKED with
info on nearly every subject in home distilling.
