      I've been looking on the forums and reading email threads from here.  I've googled and been doing some reading.  I have some questions.

      Right now I am using a CM reflux still from mile-hi and it puts out 180  easily every time.  I like it, but I'd like to get something a bit more efficient and more controllable. From my research there are numerous types of refluxing still heads.

      http://journeytoforever.org/biofuel_library/ethanol_motherearth/meCh7.html is great article about bubble cap, perforated plate, and packed columns.


      .

      I've yet to find a simple comparison chart or even a "This is the best design" type of thing.  I understand there are multiple paths to the goal of 95%, but there must be a most efficient path.

      For home distillers, say batch washes of 5-10 gallons.  what is the best, most efficient method?

      propane + boka? 
      220v + boka?

      propane + bubble cap?
      220v + bubble cap?
