I have read lots of other forums and seen the descriptions of their equipment and how happy they are to get 40% or 50% or 60% on the first pass, then higher and higher with 2 or 3 passes.
I have a 30 gallon pot and a 6 plate Dash still from SD. I am fixing to add 2 more plates and I can't imagine how good that will be.
I can run +/- 1 Gallon Per Hour @ 92% or 93% and even using turbo it tastes pretty good (after some carbon). I am running some corn / sugar with champagne yeast right now and it tastes wonderful on the first pass.
My question is why do people screw around with all of these different still designs and put up with low outputs when they can get high 90's for a few dollars more? Is there something that tastes better with a packed column? Did I get a magic still that allows a newbie / idiot to make great liquor, I'm confused.
I guess this is more of a testimonial for how easy it is to make great high proof neutral spirits with the Dash series of stills!!
