Up tonight on another painful tpw boka run, running it off a bit quicker than usual. Just so I catch an hr or two of zzz before work, truth be told I cant tell much difference running it at a dripdripdripdrip just before a stream compared to drip..drip..drip. once its flavoured still tastes good to me and seem pretty clean. Anyone else find this? Maybe my standards are low haha might try polishing a bottle n see how much difference it makes. Couple of bucks for carbon, cant hurt

I feel for ya pete,I've been there,

oh I'll just sneek a quick run in tonight, it won't take long. With a boka it always takes a long time. Ive sat up all night like you trying to get the best out of it with the 2 drips a second, painful but the boka will give you the rewards. I haven't been able to get as good a neutral out of my bubbler yet.

So don't give up but I'd definitely look into a bubbler :laughing-rolling:

:text-+1:
Use to set up the 2.5" pot still and run it Friday nights, then again Saturday and Sunday.....
A weekend just disappeared, all for a small return.

Pete you gotta look into a 4" bubbler, they will make your weekends/nights less of a hassle and this hobby more enjoyable. :handgestures-thumbupleft: :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Well I got 2hrs in haha, definitely looking at getting a bubbler just waiting on approval from the missus. In the meantime, once I get a good stock of neutral up ill be getting rid of my 2' boka 1m packed section and building a 1.5m 3'. Better takeoff, better quality and can probably build one for the price ill be selling mine for :handgestures-thumbupleft:
Cheers Pete
