When you say, "adjust dephleg cooling water flow to about 50/50," you mean that half of the flow through the pc goes to the dephlegm, and half doesn't?
Cheers, lookin good!

Reads correctly in ice water and boiling, plus it's within 0.2degF of my other probes at room/beer temp. Hydrometer reads 40% with store bought vodka.... really confusing. If anything the readings should be flipped. Off by about 2-3%abv. Maybe this is from additional rectification in the u-bend at the top of the column. Wouldn't have guessed that it would be that great.
What's the purpose of the housing on the ell? Waterproofing a connection?
