Re: [new_distillers] can i make a smaller still
- Ok. I was trying to avoid getting too technical too soon, so on coming across the boakob have decided to go with this and grow from there on when I understand a bit more of the maths and theory behind it, but thanks for your help, and ill bear it mind.Stuart

The answer is yes, anything is possible – will it work efficiently is another matter.
You have to work with what is available to you 54mm is damned close to 2inch. My own column is 1” 3/8.
The main problem with small is that it is much more fiddly to work with – soldering etc.

Subject: [new_distillers] can i make a smaller still
does any body know of any designs for smaller stills than the half
barrel incorporating 2 and 3 inch, tube. i was hoping that 42mm and
54mm might be acceptable for the construction of valved reflux, and
using a smaller boiler as i can obtain these materials more easily and
cheaply than the imperial tubes and especially the fittings. as a
complete novice to distilling but not to home brew, any thing from the
more experienced will be welcomed to get me going!!!
