RE: [Distillers] Re: need help with neutral spirit from reflux still
- Not sure where you are from ,but try and find stainless steel pot
scrubbers. I found really good ones at the Bin Inn (NZ) they are all ss and
"course" rather than "wool" they need to be teased out and rolled into a
tube for insertion into the column . Can be packed fairly tightly, work
really well (get around 95% regularily) and clean up well. All I do now is
hook them out after a run and thread them onto a piece of wire and hang on
the clothes line,hose well and let to dry in the sun easy as.
