    @Southernhighlander Your explanation of the vent cleared up my confusion. I thought that it was part of the piping between the condenser and the parrot, but now I understand that it is a safety vent in case of condenser malfunction. I have seen vapors and liquid spewing out of condensers and I agree that safety is the first priority. @Allan No more info needed.

    First off Paul is correct. he did not make the condenser, and that was where the problem was. That and operator error. The pot is fine. As far as the modifications I made, I put some copper scrubbers in the reducer cone above the condenser to work as a pre-condenser of sorts. violentblue also recommended I make a copper coil or spring and insert it into the tubes of the condenser to elongate the vapor path, and I suppose create some turbulence. I would guess You are not having the same problem if removing the vent solved it though.

    @Patio29Dadio, I would like to give you one other thing to consider as well in the scenario you shared above is you are thinking about buying this with a guy in your building. That is all good and fine and saves money, but you need to think about insurance. How will you insure it, who will be reimbursed if something happens to the equipment? What happens if the other guy is using it and causes damage or injury and your name is on it as well? There are a lot of things to consider when going in on purchases with folks outside your business. There are solutions to all of these issues, but you need to keep them in mind when looking into joint ventures, for sure. I have seen things like this come back to bite folks who did nothing wrong aside from having a co-ownership on something. Best, Aaron

    patio29 dadio not sure about a grain in process like you mention , we use the hydrosieve to separate 3rd water from spent grain . as far as fines goes were currently running malt barley thru our process but it is ground very fine . no problem with plugging the hydro sieve the spent grain rolls down and cleans itself . we don't ferment or distill on the grain as it doesn't suit our continuous column , we need our wort and distillers beer clean . we do plan on doing a batch on the grain to compare but haven so far . tim

    I love Georgia boots. Comfy out of the box and they make a waterproof, chemical resistant non slip boot. I get about 18 months out of a pair

    Believe it or not, Sears Diehards. We'll see how long Sears lasts, but I've been wearing these for a couple decades. Short break-in, wax them again and buy a new pair once a year (they go on sale 2x a year for around $60-70). Pretty comfy.

    I use merrell work boots. They just added a work boot catagory with composite hard toes, slip resistant, etc. I get about 18months out of mine. Super solid shoes.

    Going to submit a recipe for bourbon using high fructose corn syrup. Same thing as sorghum syrup whiskey.

    I am going on 4 years on the same pair of Red Wing heritage boots and they have held up very well. Although, it is about time to have them resoled, I dont ever see them completely wearing out from the work done or the chemicals that come in contact working in the cellar every day. I try to clean and oil them 2-3 times a hear to make sure they dont dry out. They were pricey up front but Im hoping it to get 10+ more years out of them.
