      To add to what I just sent, if you are worried about the alcohol burner, just get yourself a single burner camping stove, either propane or coleman fuel.  In thinking about it, it would be much more efficient, ie hotter and faster!  Good luck in your efforts...

      To take the plunge into distilling I got an alembic pot still with an alcohol burner as heat source. So far I've distilled a bit of water to try it out and check for leaks. A couple of people I've spoken to have warned me that the open flame alcohol burner is very dangerous. If I use tubing to direct the distillate from the condenser a foot or so from the flame is there really any danger?

      And "thank you" to all for the advice I've already received from the members here.
