By the way... Why do people call these "shotgun" condensers? Aren't they more like a mini gun or a Gatling gun? A shotgun only has one or two barrels... While a mini gun on the other hand...

Ahhhh there you go. Okay I probably should have googled multi barreled shotgun first! I'm guessing it must have predated the minigun or Gatling gun when people were building stills!

or could it be simply referencing the scattering discharge effect of a shot gun from a single tube

Haha Americanos are definetly a unique race! In the Aircon/Fridgy game shotty's or Gatling guns are just called shell and tubes. A lot more boring I reckon :?
