So I want the still to be a pot still for ripping runs and poteen and a reflux column for the vodka. I need a complete working ready to go setup so want to make sure I'm not missing any pipes, connectors, gaskets before I order etc etc.
I'd like to add a probe to both the boiler and top of the column to measure temps.
Here is my shopping list so far:
cant find but need
Hi BigVodka, you can let me have a look on to your shopping cart and I will check it out for any missing parts or if anything is not necessary. Just drop me an e-mail with your account details. :)

Do you intend to make a vodka with your 3 plate crystal dragon?
3 plates will make an excellent whisky or rum but not so much a vodka. You would have to either add a lot more plates, run it through 3 plates 3 times (minimum) or run a hybrid setup (cheapest option) using a packed section in line with your plates. There is some information about hybrid setup in the operation manual at the top of the forums main page
@BigVodka - Propably best to get in touch with your local distributor to check for completeness ( @Sunshine already offered). However, if you're going for Vodka, you should think about going with much much more plates. Read through the forum here and you'll see plenty of trial & error, but everything's pointing towards more plates = better.

thanks for the replies. Height is going to be the limiting factor, I have 2.2m to play with. including the boiler, stand and pipework how many plate sections can I fit ?
How many plates do you recommend. I'm running 6 of the pro cap
