That enclosure will work fine. And I agree with SOCD that I'd go with a CCVM reflux design. Less temperamental than a coolant management column.
Thank you sir, I'm leaning CCVM now too.

Re: My first still

This should work fine for my still right?

It's just a simple 2" TC adapter for a standard water heater element

Re: My first still

Hello, How are you getting on with the DES Subotica still? I’ve looked at their site and wondered how the quality is? That's not my still, I'm not exactly sure why it was posted to this tread... You boil your drinking water because it ?tastes bad or because you are worried it has bacterial contamin...

Re: My first still

I just checked, my shed's breaker is indeed 15A. Sorry about the confusion between 110/120v, I just checked with my multimeter and it's reading 112.4v. I could probably run an extension cord to the shed from a separate breaker for a hot plate for stepping runs. I already have a nice long cord I use ...

First, on 120v you can get a 2000w element.
At 110v wouldn't that be over 18 amps? I'm pretty sure my breakers are 15 amps.

Might want to add an other packed section as 500mm isn't that big.
Add some copper to the packed section to help with sulphur compounds


Cool beans, I was planning on getting copper packing.

Think 1m would be pushing it for a 2" column @ 1500w?

Re: My first still

looks well made. what are you doing for still head? Great, you could make a modular head that does both pot still and reflux. I'm actually waffling between a CCVM and a water managed dephlagminator. I was initially thinking of getting a short column and 2 x 90° elbow fittings for the pot still and ...

My first still

Moved from http://homedistiller.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=78436&p=7631186#p7631186 New 38L boiler has arrived! I had been in contact with Broken Oar a few times. Unfortunately they're very low on stock since covid and weren't sure when the boiler I was interested in would be available. They on...

Re: Newb from Vancouver Island

There's a couple of canadian options for boilers and still parts, namely broken oar, hawke probate, north still. Wow Broken Oar isn't all that far of a drive from me. I can probably save on shipping. Still... a but expensive at $350 plus tax for a 30L milk jug. The image of the jug they use on thei...

No one's word is gospel and I don't take his as absolute truth either 😉

Looking forward to learning from everyone.

Newb from Vancouver Island

Hello all! A YouTube rabbit hole somehow led me to the Barley and Hops channel with George discussing home distilling. Months later I feel like I've watched nearly all his videos and the forum research goes on and on. I was initially just interested in learning about the craft for fun, as I'm a type...
