StillerBoy wrote:The huffing you are getting is probably due to reducing from 2" to 1/2" in one step, plus from the reducer to the liebig is to long.. reducing to quickly create pressure build up combine with the long distance to the liebig will reduce the efficiency of the column..

I was just pointing out that the method used in the build was not the best.. it will work as setup, but as you have already pointed out you're having issues..
I would recommend that you do a few run as you presently have it setup, checking for efficient such the amount of power you can use in relations to the rate of take off, and then if are still having difficult with the setup, you may want to made the modifications then.. making the modification now will not teach you anything.. but rest assured that there will be a big improvement in efficience..

Try and find a balance between heat input and cooling from the water in the condenser. Have some copper mesh in stand by incase I need it. And go from there.

Ferthy wrote:Yeah though after my first run I could see how a shorter column would allow things to start dripping faster. Though I was surprised to see the overall abv of what I collected to be at 65% we will see how she handles with the spirit run.
