THUMP KEG

Postby leob2 » Mon Jul 06, 2009 11:09 am

I need an answer today get if possible.I getting ready to run 15 gal. I have a beer keg still and I'm using a 1 gal pickle jar as a thumper.
Question: do I let the product fill the thumper and run down the condenser or do I keep empting the hooch before the hooch reaches the top and use the thumper juice for my next run.thanks in advance.
I hope that I feel better when I'm ridin' in that hearse.

I wouldn't use glass jar as a thumper .Would recommend that you read up on uses of a thumper before adding one to your still . http://homedistiller.org/equip/designs/thumper
PLEASE READ THIS FORUMS RULES AND THESES Links: http://homedistiller.org and New Distiller Reading Lounge I use a pot still

I have read many replies and stiildidn't an answer.doI the jar spill over into the finished product or emty the jar beforeit reaches the condenser tube?
(I quess I wan't to know if I just want the vapors from the jar or is it ok if the liquid is ok.Its a sugar and turbo yeast wash sothere is no solids involed.
I hope that I feel better when I'm ridin' in that hearse.

I definitely agree no glass,, if the thumper is sized right /run right it should never over fill. wash should work good just cover end of down tube.
