Hello all, new to the forum been running pot stills since '04. I recently built a new 15 gallon pot still and added a single torpedo before my 2x18" column. I am using the perforated plate with a copper downcomer instead of the bubble plate. My question is for simplicity's sake would a packed column with no dephleg provide enough reflux to load the plate passively or would I still need some form of cooling. I read somewhere else on the forum that someone else did this but could not track down the post. Any help you guys could offer would be greatly appreciated.
