Copper dish

Postby Moscca » Sun May 13, 2018 1:58 pm

I'm planning to buy a bigger still, and there is quiet a difference with the model that comes with the dish of the tank in copper.
Is the copper dish important for distilling rum ?


Thanks a lot,
Moscca

boiler is not important to distilling anything. Copper was employed because it was simple for the average guy to work with. Pusser's still boils in wooden boilers with rusty metal bottoms......I have a friend who'll drink nothing else. Spend your money wisely or your wife will put an end to your hobby :P

Usual advice with pot still is to have some copper in the vapour path. I run stainless boiler and top, but copper column and condenser. Never had an issue - but then, I've neer run a stainless pot without some copper in the vapour path.
