Hey guys, it’s question time again
I am about to buy the some lengths of 6" copper tube from my scrap yard and I need to know how much I need to buy?
I have a 60 gallon copper boiler which will be powered by a maximum of about 13k watt heating elements. The still will also be completely modular.
My questions are:
From reading other peoples posts on this forum – if i buy a 6" diameter pipe will each section need to be 6" in length? I will have 3" sight glasses or 4" if I can get the right copper and glass
And is it OK to have a 6" diameter x 6" in length copper dephlegmator? I was thinking of adding 5 x ½ pipe in between the dephlegmator.
I also have a 4" x 800mm copper tube I want to make into a shotgun condenser. Is that long enough?
If I can get the copper do you think a 10 plate still would be worthwhile or is 6 plates enough? I will mainly be doing rums and whiskeys but thought it might be fun for a few vodkas? What are peoples thoughts? Or is it overkill?
Can't wait to start building :)
