I've seen commercial still for bourbon that runs two separate kettles/pots into a single column and parrot. I'm not sure about the logistics of building it, but it's surely possible to get 2 keg boilers running to the one column.

Geese, finding 2 different circuits is hard enough imagine having to have 4.
Possible on a hobby scale but probably not practical for a lot of us.

Two joined boilers=Boiler thumper setup. Definately has its advantages but also has its down side. If you go this way make sure you know what your doing and make sure you have all safety aspects covered..

Am going with the straight 100L boiler made from the spiral tube.

Very nice. Is it hard to balance with two inputs into one column?

I'd have to imagine you'd only run both to strip, which is probably pretty efficient. The column and plates would have to be bigger than they appear to handle a spirit run, I would think. Those pots are about 500L, with the bottom of the manway being about shoulder height. I remember this being headed for a bourbon distillery, but I couldn't tell you which one anymore. :think:
