flap plate

These are boilers with half columns, bubble, sieve or any other plates. These stills may make a particular type of spirits. Please feel free to discuss the benefits and features of these beautiful machines and their inventive builders.

Lloyd is mate. We often develop our products due to customer request and input, but as for most of the line it's come from Fester.

The man is an unsung genius and that will be shown here very soon.

I've seen the work you've all been doing, very innovative and interactive with the customer. I'm looking forward to seeing these new plates!!!!, need to know if I'm waisting my time lol.

Designed some.new plates through the week, using some.of the flap plate ideas. No downcomer again, will be adjustable manually for different washes, run speeds, stills. Is running 2 ABV higher than my standard 3 bubble caps. One new plate under two bubble caps.

Normal speed.


Good amount t of heat.

What's not to like about having a harley part on your still? It would certainly require a nice harley sticker....


I made a 3" bubble plate with risers and it was a pain. I can't see by you couldn't have am nice 2" bubble plate if you put the pass through in the middle. Elegant and simple , Great idea wish I was bright enough to come up with that....way to go gootch!

Flap plate loading

Well, found some issues, first run, the plate was above a single cap plate, ran great, abv 90~92%, taste very similar to all cap plate run, maybe a touch cleaner. Last run, had the flap plate on the bottom, kept flooding when I turned the heat up, which resulted in lower abv, taste was still good though. So, I'll try 6mm holes for the bottom plate and 5mm as I have now, for the other plates. Gonna try 3 together.

mod edit to fix the link.
