I remember the photo and the build but you were using another handle back then. Can't remember right now but it'll come to me..........

Nice job anyway. i built one once with plastic outer casing. Never found a use for it :(

Call it a counterflow chiller, and sell it on a home brew forum for $50?

Mike Nixon & Mike McCaw (Amphora Society) introduced this design with their first iteration/release of their PDA-2. Somewhere around 2005 IIRC.

Slainte!

It is the one I was thinking of.


I guess it's time for me to resurface out of the woodwork.

That's actually my pot still that I built about 4 years ago and it works a treat for my whisky and rum. I just wanted a longer liebig condenser but didn't want to have all of the weight hanging off one side of my still where it would have need to be supported.

It has a short 12 inch unpacked column just to give a little bit height for the condenser to hang off. In operation I have the column insulated to limit any reflux.

I just used straight soft copper with salt packing and hand formed it around a timber mandrel that I made up out of some scrap plywood.

When I made mine I already had the coiled outer tube (salvaged from a water heater) so I just coiled the inner tubes to the same diameter and fed them in. It would have been easier if I had used soap as a lubricant, but you live and learn.
