With the single pipe, they might be impeding vapour flow a bit - I had little concept when I made it that it would handle this much product, now im trying to push it as far as I can pretty much for the lols - would like to slowly go through and prove/disprove a lot of the anecdotal building tips along the way too, the spiral wrap of wire to channel the coolant around is another to look at

One of the first things I made a was a 2” shotgun condenser on my pot still, turned out fairly easy. I also use a controller with it now and is very easy to use. If you make it modular it makes it easy to clean.
Some really good hints in the builds section.

I'm also running a Liebig on my 2in pot. It is 1m of 3/4 over 1/2 and, and easily knocks down 8L/hr when striping with 2x 2200w elements. I did crimp along the inner because it sounded like a good thing to do but have no idea how much efficiency it adds
