Nice looking rig googe! What is the capped pipe coming out the front at about where I am guessing your reflux condenser is located?
I started my liquid diet and so far it seems to be working! I've already lost two days.

Thanks Bushman, the litte cap is on the end of a output tube from the rc, I'd put the tube there as an experiment to see how it would go having a lower output and a high one, didn't work to well. But I'm still going to try a few ideas with it when I get the time :roll: . Thanks Doc, I thought it was a good name to lol.

I didn't say much about it earlier cause I was in a hurry, its the rc and shotie from my other bubbler. Same plates, its just all 4inch now instead of 3 inch to 4inch reducer sections. Will be interesting to see if it runs any different tomorrow, hoping for faster cause its not reduced by the 3 inch sections now?.

That is a really cool looking still, I have a two plate bubler and as long as I am not interested in doing vodka it is perfect, I can run. rum and whiskey's really well. Would love to get some copper but already have a great stainless setup, so would be a luxury and not a necessity,
Any way that should serve you well, good luck,
Nick

Does the level get any higher than that? If so, it could be an issue, if it dosn't, it shouldnt be a prob.
You seem to have a lot of vapor going through it, maybe try it turned down a little.

Nah mate, I turned it down, was just getting used to how it runs like this. alot different, alot more power, was.quite surprised at how.much more power was needed. Ran well after I got it sorted.
