Stainless steel gin basket

Postby Bushman » Sun Sep 30, 2012 1:11 am

I did not think this was appropriate to tag onto stilldragon's gin basket thread so thought I would start a new one. After reading the thread and someone mentioning stainless steel tea holders I found this one while vacationing yesterday in San Francisco's Chinatown area.

It is approx. 3-1/2"

My plan is to put it just above the dephlagmater.

I started my liquid diet and so far it seems to be working! I've already lost two days.

Bushman,

I have used them in my column with some success. I found them a little small, which is why I have two. The other issue for me was the clean up. I had to give my boiler a thorough cleaning to get rid of the juniper smell. It wasn't hugely difficult, just a little more than my usual rinse.

I knew you were looking for something. That looks like it will do the trick for you.

Sorry, I had to repost this.

How sanitary do they think these things are?

Fantastic solutions. Everyone has their choice for whatever. Look back to the first fella that figured it out. Distilling is a simple art w/ many varied nuances. This s exactly what keeps me invested in this forum.

I came here to learn, and learning is an art. You guys have it nailed. :handgestures-thumbupright:

I may need to be "put down" soon.

Prunus, did you make that or purchase it (looks good)? Interesting as you have it close to the boiler. I have heard several theories. Corsair puts it as far away from the boiler as they can. I have seen distillers float the juniper berries in the boiler on their spirit run. Have you tested the effects putting it at different locations?

Hej Bushman,

yes, i made it myself. For 4" and 6" columns.It was the easiest way for my construction.
Inspired by the doctor i planned a changeable Ginbasket after the Dephlag.
This is much more complicated, cause for my understanding it´s not effective to get the Ginbasket-Soup on the Plates. So you have to take care,
that the reflux from the Ginbasket comes straight back to the Boiler and not over the plates. The plates are indicated to produce fine Phases.
You need some valves and if you make a mistake in switching the valves, you will explode your rig.
I will report my activities in that.

regards
