electric parrot

Recommended Posts

We have not used it, but one must keep in mind it is not a true "parrot", that is, a device to measure specific gravity to determine ABV. It measures ABV by measure vapor temperature and pressure somewhere in the final vapor path after leaving the head of the still. It can be fairly accurate, provided certain odd geometries and temperature profiles for the location of the device are avoided. You want the vapor measured to be in a good equilibrium with its surrounds (temperature and pressure, and good mixing, at least locally around the probe). Read the thread on the blog site for more background.
