New 67mm Still Pipe fittings to fit your existing 54mm still pipe fittings.
This is a new adaption I have just made. It will allow you to convert your existing 54mm still into a 67mm still or even bigger just ask. This will increase the yield and the ABV. You will be able to use your existing 54mm vapour cooling tube and pipe work. The vapour cooling tube fits directly into the new dividing tray. The new dividing tray has a 10mm Liebig outlet connection and a blind thermostat port. So you can choose to fit a thermometer or not. If you have the 54mm boss fitting and a 54mm pipe coming from it you will be able to just slot a 67mm to 54mm adaptor on the tube and place your 67mm still pipe into position. Equally if you have a keg fitting you will be able to slot the new adaptor over the existing 54mm pipe and that is all you will need to upgrade to a 67mm still tube. If the keg adaptor has a coupler to take your still pipe you will need a short piece of 54mm tube.( About 3 inches or 75mm of copper pipe.) Your existing Liebig connections will fit the new dividing tray connections providing they are 10mm. If not you will need to adapt the connection or ask I will fit the appropriate connection for you. These larger fitting sizes are not cheap but the improved results will soon cover the cost of the up grade. As a foot note there are a plethora of reducers on eBay to get you from 10mm to what ever size thread is on your Liebig.
The rubber seal that I normally use on the joints is a little more difficult to source for this size of pipe. There is an alternative. The self amalgamating rubber tape that is readily available again on eBay. This will probably last for a couple of runs if you do not break the still down between runs as when it gets hot it tends to relax it’s grip a bit. Again do not worry about any possible contamination as it never comes into contact with the product from the inside. I am trying to source the right size rubber tube at the moment. These photos are a guideline the design may change slightly with possible improvements but the basic idea will remain.

PS– If you would like to pack your 67mm column with copper mesh, as a rough guide you will need 2.5mts per 10cm of pipe. i.e. 500mm/50cm of pipe you will need 12.5mts of mesh. 1000mm/100cm of pipe you will need 25mts of mesh.
