used natural gas in my kitchen for the last 2 yrs. with a 23 ltr.
boiler with a pda-1 column...I've never 'YET" had a problem.. I have
an extinguisher close by,and an exhaust fan....it requires no more
attention than an a electric unit...with much better temp. control....

Now thats "excellent ventilation" and "great common sense" - always
have my exaust fan turned up full in my kitchen with the windows open
(and yea theres a red thingy near by that shoots stuff out - but not
sure how to use it), but since im just a simple pot distiller, still
cant understand all this new fangled stuff about power controllers,
heat sinks, guages, uninsulated power tab devices, ect.
I just use my electic stove, turn it up to high to get the temp to
about 75C at my still head then turn it down to a bit below medium.
At about 86.5 to 88.5 depending on the mash i made, that white stuff
starts dripping out. Throw the first stuff out and just keep a tab on
it every 20 minutes or so and test it every 200-300 mL by taste and my
new fangled "Proof and Traille Scale for Spirit U.S. Customs House
Hydrometer" thingy... to make the cuts - if it starts slowing down i
jack the heat up a notch so to make sure the drips keep comming out
nice and easy in a constant fashun. Wish i could understand all this
stuff but the hootch sure tastes good to me and my friends.
