Just to show y'all I actually do our craft as well as other endeavors, I have a topic. I use pretty cold cooling fluid when either in pot or reflux mode. I have seen threads where this might not be good. While I seem to get very good results with this, I am curious to the opines that can be offered.
I use 2.5 gal old Distiller Water Jugs that I have frozen in the deep freeze. I get about an hour outa each jug - water to the condenser is about 48-51F. I also run the output water from the condenser into the column lines which have a good sized wad of copper mesh wrapped around them (In pot mode) and Raschid chips (and no copper) in reflux mode.
I use about 3-4 jugs in a low n slow run.
