Pot still design and discussion

Longer column or shotgun

Postby FilthyPhil » Sun Sep 27, 2020 10:11 am

I have a 500mm, 400mm & 100mm length of 2" copper pipe, 2 metres of 1/2", 2 x 90 elbows & an end cap.
Am I better off using the 500mm length for the column & 400mm for shotgun condenser or go the other way round with 400mm column & 500mm shotgun?
They will be sitting on a 50 litre keg boiler.

I'm beginning to think you guys get paid a bonus or something every time you mention FSD ;-)

You are definitely an ideas man Phil.
That is a brilliant idea.
Let’s just vary it a little so that instead of money we simply get store credits.
Did I mention how great fsd are :laughing-rolling:
