It's always been easy to replace the plastic jug it comes with with a jar or glass or etc..to collect in. Less easy is addressing the plastic area between the output coil and nose.

As yet I have never seen the hood come into any contact with distillate. I imagine it is there for safety if the still pukes. I measure 85% ABV running 40% through again if I cut conservatively. Nevertheless, I am only playing with this to learn while I slowly educate myself on building a real still using advice from these forums and the parent site.
I appreciate the tips on controlling the power level, in the meantime.
