Jonny's Tumper

Postby jonnys_spirit » Thu Mar 14, 2019 1:41 pm

Hi! I've had a 13g stainless milk jug potstill for about 2yrs now. I've had a great time making various spirits and want to increase my capacity a little so I can maybe fill a 5g barrel on a single spirit run, and also strip on grain.

I have ordered a 16g copper milk can boiler so I am planning to put together parts to use this as a boiler thumper combo.

Cheers!

Here’s the new boiler. Pretty cool. It has two heater element ports, one drain port, a boiler thermometer port, an extra 3” fill port and the mouth is an 8” milk can with a 3” triclamp for whatever column. I’ll start a simple corn mash this weekend for the sac run and vinegar it in the meantime so i can start using it now.

For thumper operation it looks like Otis’ has the connectivity plan so I’m heading that route except I think I’ll use a 2” vapor tube feeding into the thumper and a 2” vapor tube out of the thumper to triclamp to my existing liebig. The Thumper head will be on a 3” triclamp and 3”x2”x2” tee.
