Well Y'all have seen pics, now on to how she runs.


After cleaning an all, I have made 3 runs. The first was a spirit run with 30% UJ low wines. I was able to run at 91% at 4+ L an hour rate.


The next 2 runs were normal UJ washes. Both runs were nearly identical. I was able to run 90% at just over 3L per hour. I am really like this new setup.

She runs like a striped ass ape, but when tails get ready to start she just nearly shuts plum down. I love it....

I run my 3 plate and Im getting almost the same results with UJ. I get not as good as you but a solid 88 ABV at a rate of 3L pet 40 mins if slow down to 3L per hour we would be very close.
Sounds like a winner to me :D

How's the Flavor coming off that Setup? I'm trying for additional Separation on my Setup, without
losing all of the Flavors. I'm making Whiskey. Maybe a dumb Question, but could a Thumper filled with fresh Wash add Flavor
is placed after this Column? I'm running a 40" Tall 3" packed Column now on a 15.5 gal boiler.

I have thought about the next Step being a 5" Diameter column, and reducing to 3" at the Top and then going down to 3/4" going into the Thumper. If the 5" is too big, save that Column for Stripping, and use the existing 3" Column for running with the Thumper.
