Brand New FSD 4" Pot

Postby Georgio » Mon Oct 01, 2018 2:00 pm

Hi All,

Just wanted to post a pic of my new FSD 4" Pot. Clean as a whistle and ran like a breeze on her maiden run.

Thank you for all the help and advice Andrew, 5 star service :clap: . The brass fittings for the cooling line and the sealant you gave me worked an absolute treat!

Zero leaks and best of all no thread tape required :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Nice rig mate. Best thing is she's modular so you can build a bubbler from here :dance:

The booze has to taste good flowing out of that shiny beast! :obscene-drinkingdrunk:
I've had the privy of looking at one of these up close and its a credit to 5 Star for the quality they sell... they are a nice bit of gear. :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Stripped some cfw on first run and was super impressed. Starting ABV %75 and ran boiler upto 99c and it was still knocking down vapor, distillate was still cool...just awesome gear.

Thanks mate. The bottle closest to the new rig is gen 5 UJ on 3rd use bourbon cubes. The UJ is actually 6 months old already (I left it white). The bottle at the back is a 100% Malt Whisky, on med toast AO, 4 months old. I was checking the oakiness whilst taking in all the shiny new gear :obscene-drinkingchug:

It is a cooler mash tun indeed. Works a treat. It was a pressie from the mrs....which she now regrets given the amount of time I spend working on my hobby :obscene-drinkingdrunk:

Yeah but if you have the right gear, you can do it more efficiently which should make it quicker which means more time with the Mrs.... if only they would believe it! :laughing-rolling:
