    Copper is good for the reason you state. But if your still has other copper in the vapour path that may be enough. My column is SS so I use copper structured

      Copper is good for the reason you state. But if your still has other
      copper in the vapour path that may be enough. My column is SS so I use
      copper structured packing to give me the copper contact. Don't even
      think of marbles. They are just not efficient enough.

      Cheers,
      Lindsay.

      If the bottle is galvanized it is very poisonous. Don t use it. Stevo ... the inside of it is galvenized or has some type of anti corrosive material so far
