You don’t need a bubbler. But be honest with yourself. You have a calling.

Great build Lesgold :handgestures-thumbupleft:
I've been away for a bit but it looks like others have taken up the call for a bubbler :teasing-nutkick:
Good thing you avoided 1/4" on your parrot, I used it on my parrot beak and it causes it to sputter (my parrot isn't connected to my still so it's not a venting issue).
You've inspired me, it looks like you've used the same 1/4" ball valve that I have sitting spare and maybe I'll use it as a drain on my parrot. I don't often use my parrot as I'm pretty sure they cause extra smearing without a drain. But a drain would be nice :think:

So Lesgold, you’ve been a bit quiet. What’s happening with that haul of copper pipe? :D

Stripped the paint off the copper and that’s all I’ve done. Sitting here looking at 2 fermenters of UJ that need to be run so it’s a matter of priorities. Booze comes first. With the restrictions being eased, it’s a bit easier to get out and do other stuff so the bubblers not on the priority list. Can still make all I need with the gear that I’ve got. I can already see that the CCVM is only going to be fired up when neutral for gin is required. Most of the time the pot will be used for bourbon and rum. One thing that I have noticed is the modular pot is also not being used. I grab the inverted V pot still, attach one tri clamp and clip on 2x hoses and away I go. It has turned out to be an absolute cracker. The inbuilt shotty knocks the vapour down with ease and it’s so compact. Anyway, another good day has arrived. Time to go bush and prospect for some gold before someone else grabs it. The bubbler will now end up as a slow wet weather build.

Victoria? Isn’t that a foreign place to the south of gods country? I’ve heard that the people down there are nice but for the life of me, I can’t understand their accent... :teasing-neener: :teasing-neener: :teasing-neener: :teasing-neener:

It never rains in NSW. Especially when you want it to.
