    What style of still are you making that you place the RC in the sight glass? Are you making a VM still with variable flow through the RC coil to control reflux?

    Campers habitually, and unconsciously I might add, try to define one another as to their position within the camping fraternity. I think this must go back to the pre-adolescent “my dad can beat up...

    95% there. Just need to get the quick release fittings for the RC coil and then to figure out how to route the plumbing. I have both a 30l and a 50l I can bolt the column to.

    Re: Home distilled

    Nice well done.

    What is your column packing? I have ordered 6mm Raschig Rings, rather expensive due to them only offering one shipping option.

    Did you run low wines or a wash directly?

    Are you running a CCVM or a different configuration?

    Curious as to why you packed the sight glass?

    What ABV were you getting?

  17. Re: Beer and distilling for sale and trade

    I believe 11/12l. I measured it once and now have just calculated. The position of his element looks identical to mine.

    With a 25l wash at 10% ABV you won't run dry.

    I am fitting a gas burner...

    That would be one of the Orb Spiders.

    They generally come out at dusk and spin a web to catch insects. At dawn they pack up their web and go sleep.
