- Hello all
The other day I was going to distill 1 gal of low wines 40 abv in my 4
gal ss boiler. I put 4 10mm glass beads in the boiler and started the
run. After about 10min of collecting(2 drips/sec)I began having
massive vapor surges that blew right past the condenser and into the
air! The heat was absolute minimum and water flow at max and it made
no difference. After the 3rd surge I shut it down. Was this caused by
the extra space in the boiler from it being only 1/3 full? This was
the most unnerving experience. I am building a more capable condenser
no matter but would like to know the possible cause.
PS This was without my thumper in place.
