How are you going to suspend the outlet reducer in the column? I'd say it would be easier to build a Boka slant plate.

Any fridge mechanics in here.

G'day all, my bloody fridge has packed it in again. It's not defrosting properly....I don't know if it's the ceramic heater, the PCB or just the defrost relay (which I think is on the main PCB anyway). I was hoping someone has access to the LG service manual site and could do me a favour. :D The mod...

Welcome xbrehw, it doesn't get much easier than the UJSM recipe found here. While it's fermenting build a still like the one pictured below. Don't worry about specific sizes and/or lengths, just grab some copper and braze it together. Use gas as your heat source to start with as it is just so much e...

Re: How long should I age for?

I think chips are very, very easy to over do. I was consistently overoaking mine when using chips. I now use my own toasted sticks, they are about 6" x 1/2" x 1/2" and are toasted in foil (with a few pin pricks in the foil packets) at 200Deg C for 2hrs. I add about 4 or 5 of these sticks to a gallon...

Re: What to expect on UJSM start to end.

It is difficult to provide exact yields due the amount of variants in every run. It all depends on (and not limited to) the type of yeast used, how long it took to ferment, the size/shape of your still, how fast you run the still etc. I'll try to elaborate a bit so I don't come off as a smart arse :...

Re: Liebig length/diameter/column width

It will work fine, mine is the same although I'm running 1/2" inside 3"4" liebig. The condenser doesn't need to be as big as you are planning (it won't hurt BTW) because it only has to be able to knock down the power you put in. To get good separation you don't need alot of power, I run about 850wat...

Re: Thumper setup

What's the purpose of the first condenser? The thumper will never boil if the first pass likker that fills it is cool. Or are you planning on using a element in the thumper as well? Maybe I have missed something.
