That may be like my 3" horizontal recircuc. project. Too small to be efficient. I found I had to scale up my idea to have any benefit.

BUT a 3' tall 2"plate column would look really cool on 2-3 gallon still.

I may need to be "put down" soon.

Yes it has been done before on 2 and 2.5 . From what i remember it didnt work so hot and was a pita to build. Packing material of some sort (copper mesh spp or anything similar) is more efficient for two inch. Plates seem to work best in 3" and bigger.

3" flutes are more than efficient enough for hobby distilling, I get a gal or more per hour on my 3"ers.
