    Has anyone seen those commercially manufactured essential oil reflux stills available at home brew stores? Does anyone know of any way to improve the yield?

      Has anyone seen those commercially manufactured "essential oil reflux
      stills" available at home brew stores?
      Does anyone know of any way to improve the yield? From 5 litres of 20% wash,
      a yield of approx 800ml 70% is achieved. The reflux column has a marble in
      it. Would steel wool work better?

        Hi David,
        Seems to be a contradiction here - if going for essential oils the last
        thing you want is a reflux still - with one marble in it or not :-) Wadya
        reckon Des, Ray ... if going for essential oils then a straightforward pot
        still is what you need. Or am I missing something???

        Sorry for the confusion. In Australia they are sold as Essential Oil distillers for various reasons :-) ... From: Mike [mailto:mike@silverkey.co.nz] Sent:
