I don’t know how I got here (looking for dragon tattoo on Pintrest) as it happens I’ve been making my own vodka with a T500 boiler and copper condenser. Landed here and my mind has been blown, I am like a kid in a sweet shop, didn’t realize what I could do. Been watching YouTube videos reading everything I can regarding distilling with limited money looking at buying the 2 inch Baby Crystal Dragon to go on top of my 25L T500 boiler.
My question is regarding rigging the cooling water in and hot out. After looking at YouTube videos I get different options (I am trying to run before walking).
At the risk of being the RTFM guy, there's a couple of cooling options explained in detail by @crozdog in the Dash manual stickied up top that apply the same for the Baby Dragon:

Cheers for advise I did read manual first but got different advice over weekend so double checking like I said total newbie
Hi Safc, I'd be somewhat skeptical of advice that deviates from the actual manual.

plenty of ways to skin a cat, however counter flow is the most efficient
@Safc, have a look at the "Pack Content" section of our
4" Crystal Dragon™ @ StillDragon Europe
to get an idea about which parts are usually chosen for the cooling system (it's the same for the Baby Crystal Dragon™). And of course the info from the The StillDragon® Dash™ Operation Manual as per link mentioned above.
