After receiving my 4" Crystal Dragon, I am trying to see in what different ways I can use it, and how it will serve several purposes. I thought it might be of interest to friends here.
After the cleaning run, I assembled most of the parts I got and did a strip run from a 12% wheat germ wash.
Getting azeotrope was easy. I am not sure 9 plates that I used is the way to go, but all worked fine.
After that I tried to see if I could compress tails with perforated plates, and stripped an apple wash with three. Using the Big Baby Dephlegmator for a bit of reflux.
It was OK, but the ABV was more than I would like for a flavored product. So, I tried again with only two plates.
This was better. By adjusting the water flow on the Big Baby Dephlegmator, I was able to prolong the ABV around 69%. Continued till the flow from parrot was reduced to drops, the ABV was around 50%.
I will continue the experiments and share.
