That is a very complicated one. A deflegmator is simply a condenser in the vapor path to help add some reflux to the distillation. It could be as simple as a cooled tube passing through the top of the column.
Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.

Here is the link to Alex's Website where he sells the plans for it - I am not endorsing his products and would advise careful scrutiny of what he is actualy saying :


Dephlegmator Plans


He has more information here :

I'd like to build a fractional still. Seems like the one in the pic will do the trick.



I'll pay 45$ for a 4" copper fitting, I'll pay 45$ for a decent bottle of rum...buy pay 27$ for still plans? Surely you must be joking :!: :D

I was talking some time ago to a local guy who was wanting to extract polyphenols from grape seed and recoverv the alcohol and one of the track we went down was him buying the CD and he made contact with Alwe in Christchurch who makes these stills and have attached a sketch (drawn by Alex I believe)he sent me which shows the dephlegmator in a continuous still set up


Mod edit. Please resize and repost your image. Much too large. sorry try this

Sorry I for one don't understand your logic on that one.
I myself find the whole comparison quite feasible and would happily pay for a good design package.

People never did (want to pay for intellectual property). Internet has turned the human race into an ant colony. Share all without reserve. True communism (aka altruism).

I have actually bought the plans from Alex, i'm about halfway thru making the continuous fuel still (don't get alot of time to work on it) which I will be using primarily as a double stripping still and I will post the results here when complete.

He has done the hard yards designing and testing, why would you expect them for free?
Honestly, the price is so small compared to the returns you will get from them, it really isn't even worth arguing over. :)
