RE: [Distillers] Re: trid-new photos question
- Since it's only a pot still, it might put out ~80% at the start of the run
and taper off until you're just distilling water.
Your net abv% will be a result of how long you run it.
I did take a copper scrubber and wedge it up in the lid area so that the
vapours have to pass through it before exiting to the condensor. I also
slid a 6" or so length of 3/8 copper tube over the output tube so that I
could run it out to a receiver standing away from the boiler. The tapered
nature of the unit prevented a receiver from standing there easily.
