Sorry, that might be a bit mixed up but I hope all the posts can be
followed so that the development of the idea can be seen.
Thanks Richard 2005 for the suggestion about the Salton Sea but I was
thinking of something that would be less of a hassle. Something that
could be of use to hobby distillers. The thought of increasing the
pressure in a room was more about the principle than the
practicalities but was quite serious . I have thought more about it
and will start a new thread in the distillers group ('new idea')
because it is not just about the basics of distilling. However I think
the working out of the practical side of it will be simple,
inexpensive, and applicable to more than one aspect of our hobby.
Someone else has probably done it but I haven't seen it in any of the
new distillers past messages- and I have read them all- or anywhere
else. The Baker p.s. now I can't see the top of the message on the
screen, I hope Yahoo hasn't swallowed it up!
