I had a look at the link you provided, and it looks like it could be useful, but I've got no experience or training in electronics at all apart from replacing light globes >< If it's just a plug and go kinda system then I can handle that no doubt, but if it involves taking apart the heating element and doing alot of soldering and changes, I'd be a bit apprehensive to try.
I too have been getting the weird smells and flavours out of the still spirits still, it's kinda frustrating when my whiskey, UJSM and vodka (when white) taste mighty similar...
Does anyone know if the still spirits still lids are of a standard size? If they are, I might look into getting a thick bottomed pot which fits the lid snugly and just running with propane or something.
Sorry for all the questions, but at 19 years old I've not got many DIY projects under my belt :p
Cheers in advance,

Your product will improve dramatically if you run it on a controllable heat source. I too started with a still spirits setup, fortunately I was able to re-coup my costs when I flogged it off
