2" copper pipe with 2" treaded female copper fitting for the column.

1/2" copper pipe
2x 1/2" copper end cap
3/8 copper pipe
1/4" copper pipe

drilled 1/4" hole on the end caps and 3/8" holes on the 1/2" pipe.
was easy to make took me like 15min.

I wanted to ask a "thing" in this type of distillation column comes from the already liquid product,
It comes out hot but liquid product, right ?,
and it flows into the copper pipe to go towards the container hydrometer, and you still will cool more, right?
then the condenser on 'liquid outlet and necessary?
and why?
and that brings benefits?

It's up to you if you cool the product down further. It's not necessary. But without cooling a bit will evaporate, and the alcoholmeter will not give a good measurement, becaus it is calibrated to a certain temp like 20°C for example.

The longer the tube after the valve, the more it cools by itself. But something like a room tempproduct you only get with for example a liebig condenser instead of the tube.
