Re: Potstill head height? Pressure buildup? Wattage?

Ciao mayimhaim, ha detto bene Danespirit, un distillatore non deve mai andare in pressione, è impensabile e pericoloso (fai conto che la pressione all'interno deve mantenersi alla stessa pressione di quella atmosferica, questo per darti l'idea delle condizioni di lavoro di un pot stil, è come far bo...

Re: Optimum Measurments (sizes)???

Elementi Pot still: fuoco, diametro caldaia, diametro colonna, altezza colonna. Ciao a tutti, sono d'accordo solo in parte su quanto ho letto sino a ora.

Re: Thermometer on a pot still? Re: Why not?

We're talking about 1 liter runs. If you use clean neutral spirits to begin with there will be virtually no methanol. Not dangerous at all.

Cut your wormwood in half. Most classic recipes only call for 25 grams per liter. The Indian fennel is also not good for absinthe (way too much fenchone). I would go with your own suggestion of Florence fennel, or sweet fennel of Provence if you can't find the Florence. With that much anise seed yo...
