reflux one. It will only put out say 75% purity as is, or up to 80-85% if
you pack it a bit.
If you want to do better, into the realms of 93-96% purity (and the flavour
there is SO much cleaner) you should see about getting one of a decent
length (say 600-1000mL tall), with packing inside (stainless steel
scrubbers or the like - something with heaps of surface area), and set up
so that you can return a lot of the condensed vapour back to the column as
a liquid, and let it run down back over the packing.
I haven't seen any of these available yet commercially, but the new Euro
ones aren't too far off. They just have the cooling tubes through the
column at the wrong place - they should only be at the top, not half way
up, or near the bottom. Maybe with a little consumer pressure, Spirits
Unlimited might improve their game ?
