Small Batch Still - Protoyping Infusions

Post by Andrew_90 » Fri Mar 05, 2021 12:55 am


I have a 300mm diameter copper ball as used in water systems to shutoff valves on incoming water flow.

I want to have the facility to run small batches of spirit infusions to clean them up and to experiment without wasting product on poor ideas. 3/4l batched of 40% at a time.

I am hoping to use this ball as the boiler with a simple liebig condenser to as closely as possible, approximate my current pot still step-up.

Are there any pitfalls I should be mindful of.
One too many wasted sunsets, one too many for the road.
