-> you don't. The water in grey is simply poured before the beginning, and all the alcohol that gets cool is removed.

-> there is one: the exit hole. There is no liquid alcohol that remains in it
2. Top heavy, with all that condenser water.
-> well the measures aren't like in the pictures... 2mm between two copper parts is enough. Sure quite heavy, but not that much.

-> the heat at its maximum, and reflux is known by the amount that gets out of the still, not a problem
The goal is also to have something with a funny design
