      Ya put water or wash on it. The steam from the boiling kettle, heats it to boiling and then on to the condenser having been distilled twice.

      Why not use copper pipe as

      a thumper?  My thumper is made out of

      1/2" copper tubbing. A length of

      tubing, 90 degree elbow going down, 3 inch copper tubing

      vertical, a 90 degree elbow, 2" horizontal tubing, a

      fitting with a 4" vertical tubing on top with a

      threaded cap.  A 2" tubing exiting the

      "T" horizontal. 90 degree elbow,

      3" vertical tubing, an elbow, and a length of copper

      tubing.  Connect the thumper in line using

      unions, and fill thumper by unscrewing

      filler cap.  Place a few inches

      of water or tails into thumper.

      It operates

      just like a large thumper, but it heats up

      fast and producing higher proof alcohol.  One draw

      to this design is that it does provide a great deal of

      for solids.  Wash needs to be solids free to prevent
