RE: [Distillers] Re: My new false bottom.
My still has about a 7 3/4" (~19.7 cm) opening when I take the
cap/column off, and the 2 false bottom halves just barely fit
through that. (Stop snickering, Trid!) The spacer assembly that
holds the false bottom off of the real bottom is made up of 6
stainless pieces slotted together. It takes a couple of tries to
assemble it, at arm's length, and without being able to see it.

You must be using the multi-piece setup, what is the minimum keg
opening? My setup uses a 4" tri-clamp fitting so I think I am out of
I saw a post here about using double boiler and pressure cooker style
pressure relief valve and that is what I really want to make. I know
a welder and I am trying to set up a system where I have a straight
walled keg (most newer ones) cut in half. Then a keg that has a
smaller diameter top and bottom sections with a thicker middle section
(some older style kegs) will be inserted so that the two pieces can be
welded together creating a double boiler. I have the kegs I just need
the welder to get thirsty.
