42701Re: Pot still cap
- Oct 18 11:07 AMOK...I'm in the process of making my own cap. One question I have, should I have the cap discharge out the top, or out the side? I found a 6" dia copper bucket that I'm going to modify to fit, so the top of the cap will be the flat bottom of the bucket.
I have seen stills discharge out the top & out the side. Which do you think is best, or does it really matter?
