Re: CCVM flute problem, condenser fog, dissolved co2, cold weather...need yer thoughts

I’d be interested to know whereabouts on the outside your column that you can feel the sudden change from hot to cold. Here’s my 2c, the hot vapour is hitting the really cold RC and suddenly condensing. This sudden decrease in volume in the column creates a slight vacuum at the top of the column th...

CCVM flute problem, condenser fog, dissolved co2, cold weather...need yer thoughts

Re: New (1st) build: build liebig or buy this shotgun

My 36 inch liebig got left behind for a 18 inch shotgun. Just saying if its in the budget its future proofing. No hate on the liebig its great but imo a shotty is the large tits.

Re: New (1st) build: build liebig or buy this shotgun

That shotgun gonna have way more knock down power than a liebig condenser, ifn you can afford it then you got alot of condensing power at yer disposal and it will serve you well on any still you put it on. What I'm saying is i vote shotty.

Re: Couldn't sleep

I've combined hearts from different grain whiskeys and even brandy and whiskey or rum and whiskey. I have thought of combining low wines but blending heart cut makes more sense unless you've repeated the wash and run so many times you know what the low wines from each wash will land you with flavor ...

Re: Stripping Keg Boiler with Thumper Build

You could think about a tee fitting (instead of the right angle bend) in the exit from the boiler and maybe the thumper too. With a removable cap at the top. Then you can 'shoot' anything you want to shoot, and only turn off the heat for a couple of minutes. Or if you use a modular fitting there yo...

Re: Boosting live ale?

If the yeast can tolerate the alcohol, youll be fine. Not saying it will taste good. but best case itll taste like sugarhead whiskey (fine by me) and the spirit wont be as flavorful as it would be at 5 percent. If the yeast cant take it and theres residual sugar you're likely gonna have foaming and ...
