To be honest, I've not actually had the time to run my carter head yet. What little spare time I've had since I got it has been spent on other projects or trying to get my absinthe right.

Absinthe sounds interesting. Let me know how it goes, Ive always wanted to try it. I even bought a woodworm tree a few years ago :dance:

I got sick of those cooling lines leaking :angry-banghead: So I ended up using the braided cooling lines again.

I also connected both the IBC’S. Now the pumps in the first IBC, the warm water goes into the second tank and both tanks are connected via the bottom valves. Hopefully I can do muiltple strip runs and spirit runs on the same day now.

Just waiting for some more rain to come and fill the tanks up a bit more
