      Buy a small pressure cooker and attach some copper tubing to it.  Coil the
      copper tubing into a coil and set this in a bucket.  If you are planning on
      making absinthe, the still needs to be steam heated to prevent the herbs in
      the still from sticking and scorching.  This is as easy as sitting the
      pressure cooker in a large pot and using sticks, etc, to hold the pressure
      cooker off of the bottom of the pot. Then, just fill the pot with water, and
      heat it up- this way, no direct heat contacts the potstill and burns the
      stuff inside.

      in  reflux  distillation,  you  have  an  optimum  reflux  ratio...by  having  coils  or  spiral  column  and  depending  on  the  number

        in  reflux  distillation,  you  have  an  optimum  reflux  ratio...by  having  coils  or  spiral  column  and  depending  on  the  number  of  turns  and  height,  you  may  end  up  with  early  condensation  by  ambient  air,  or  it  might  take  a  while  to  collect  the  distillate  thus  consuming  more  power  or  heat  or  you  might  not  be  able  to  reach  the  right  temperature  for  condensation ....so  it's  not  advisable.  as  to  safety  issue,  vapor  pressure  is  very  low  for  alcohol (32mm),  so  as  long  as  you  have  an  outlet  its  safe...

        This maybe a dumb question but here it goes. What would happen if I were to put the (1/2 inch) pipe coming out of the boiler in circular or spiral fashion instead of putting in straight? Would it have a similar effect as a reflux? Is it safe?
