I'm trying to better understand my plated column setup.
The setup consist of a 250L kettle with a 6'' flute column with 10 sections. Available power is 16500 watts. Usually I heat up using the whole 16500 watts, then I switch to 4400 watts to slowly fill up the flute.
Using 4400 watts and setting the reflux to produce 95%ABV+ neutral spirit, my take off rate is around 3.5L/hour. (I was watching @captainshooch pulling around 7L/hours in the 16 plates 4inches column setup)
How could I ramp up my take off rate while keeping my ABV at or above 95% to produce neutral spirit? Is it the usual take off rate for a 6 inches column?
Am I completely misunderstanding the logic?
