Re: what do you think of my new mazing still?
- Few observations:
Make sure the dome is large enough. For 30 liters fermentation bucket
people have used 10-25 liters buckets on top.
You should (propably) have a return pipe for cooled air, rising pipe
ends near top of the dome and return pipe at the bottom. This way the
air circulates from one bucket to another more easily.
Adding fan increases the output but decreases the %. I've tried
internal fans in several configurations but never found the perfect
solution. If you use fan with only one connecting pipe it won't work
as the air can't get back to the boiler from the dome. Condensate
inside the fan motor tends to kill them after a week or two in use.
Put scrubbers on the rising pipe and make it large enough (4" or
more), scrubbers do give you that extra 10-20% strength.
