We have recently started distilling using our Still Dash 4 (with 4 mini plates) and we would like to add 2 T sections with plates to start getting a "cleaner alcohol". My question is a few fold and any assistance or advice would really be appreciated!
We are currently getting +/- 3 litres an hour from our still which seems a bit on the low side to me - I have adjusted water to the main condenser etc and this is about the fastest I can go with out smearing the tails into the hearts (the still is heated using 2 x 4 kW elements and once it reaches a boil one element is switched off and the remaining element is regulated using a wattage regulator - if I increase the wattage regulator too much then the plates flood). I spoke to StillDragon in Europe (where I need to order the additional two sections) and they suggested the pro plates and have indicated that this will give more litres output per hour - what are you getting if you are using the mini plates or the pro plates? Has anyone changed from mini plates to pro plates and found a difference?
With the addition of the two sections will this help the speed at allow only the flavour - if I purchase the two sections with the pro caps and leave the others with the mini caps will this change anything?
I am looking forward to getting some input!
Thanks so much!!!
