How do you say...DEPHLEGMATOR

I would expect this topic to have multiple posts by the same person showing us how to do something. If there are pictures, let pint_o_shine know and he can host them for you.

Phlegm is a 16th-17th century carry over from alchemical jargon:
(historical, chemistry, alchemy) A watery distillation, especially one obtained from plant matter; an aqueous solution. [from 16th c.]
Basically the "phlegm" is the watery part of the distillate. A dephlegmator removes the phlegm aka water.
Precondenser maybe?
I've been running glass stills for over 20 years now and have no shame in saying so.

Maybe instead of calling the product of a stripping run "low wines" you could call it "ye olde phlegmatic spyrit" or "booger shine"
