A Pot Still from your treasured Reflux Still.
This simple devise will turn your 54mm column Reflux Still into a Pot Still in one easy move.
Remove the Packing and the Vapour Cooling tower and fit the Pot Still outlet Line Arm complete with control tap. The Liebig is sold separately on the site. The thermostat is not sold by me it is sold elsewhere. ie eBay.
There you have it Reflux to Pot Still. Simple as that and all hand crafted here in Essex.
No more huge postage costs from America, much to their disappointment. I am trying to make or buy in a lot of the equipment us stillers use in the pursuance of our craft. I cannot compete with the high end stuff, I do intend to try, most of us can’t afford that type of equipment anyway. Most of us are working people trying to eek out a living and a decent drop to drink at a reasonable price. I am now retired so that makes it even more important.
I have put a 6mm tube in the top for the Thermostat. I will even supply the rubber that seals it to the column. ( It’s only a piece of bicycle inner tube. ) It is not an actual seal it just keeps the two parts a bit more stable in use and stops the vapours escaping .
The seal is not a seal as I have already said. It is a rubber that fit over the column and the Line Arm. If there is a build up of vapour it will blow via the rubber seal or the relief valve, but then, you never leave it unattended anyway do you!!? No is the correct answer.
Please see the photos I have tried to show what I have tried to explain.
Please please please if you live in a post code that is more expensive to deliver to get in touch with me before you order. You know the area you live in so you know what to expect. This will save a lot of aggravation and embarrassment. I do feel for you but there is not much I can do about it. Postage is expensive wherever you live it’s just more expensive for some than it is for others. The up side is the area is probably remote, quiet and beautiful so you you have to pay for that in some way or another.
