Is anyone here using an enhanced pot still?
By that I mean to exclude thumpers, thump towers and 1 or 2 plated columns.
Included are alembics (especially with water cooled lentils), pots with air cooled risers, spiral risers, and pots with minimal packing. Either with or without induced cooling. Even the really old Pistorius still -although some will argue that it is a "proper" reflux still.
These all fall into a pot still sub-set, that are intended to slightly change the performance of the still by modifying the naturally induced reflux.
Slightly odd but nothing new. Some of the big old pot stills used water cooled balls in the vapour path, and water filled troughs on the outside of the conical neck, for exactly the same purpose.
