I was using copper, but made my first run with stainless, and it didn't turn ou well(but that mite have been me). Also how often do i need to change it, or clean it? Thanks for your help
If you have an all-stainless rig, put some copper mesh in the vapour path somewhere, like 1/2 the column packing. Hotwater backflush the column immediately after finishing your run. If storing for a while between runs (more than a week) pull the copper mesh and airdry or ovendry it.
Many of us go the opposite route. Copper column and s/s mesh packing. Best of both worlds.
