The choke point between the boiler and the column serves both to prevent mash getting in the column and some reflux. In the same way that some boilers have two parts (cucurbite+chapiteau, don't know the english words). After the choke point, the vapors slow down.
At the size we work with in the hobby. You won't find this will make a big enough difference to warrant doing it. Without forced reflux it won't make that big of a difference.
I'm inclined, after your reactions, to remove the vertical section (between column and condenser).
As for usage :
- brandy (white wines)
- some apple mashes
- and some neutral to make macerations and herbal liqueurs
Heat : 5500 W propane. (that kind of heater, new from the store, is about 24 euros around here)
Boiler : no idea. I'm visiting local scrap yards next week to get parts and make a 20 gallons boiler.
I will study the Samohon's pot design
