Colorado Distillery Explosion and Fire

Proper design is the solution. Serpentine condensers are used in the Cognac industry and they seem to have it figured out. I'm not saying they have all the answers but they have been making the stuff since before the USA was a country.  For a 660 gallon still, its length is 214 ft with an inlet diameter of 3.5 " and an outlet diameter of 1.5". It is equipped with a breather to reduce pulsing.

Big difference between a cognac and a grain in whiskey Is the solids that cause the block.  They might be perfectly safe as long as its just a liquid charge but the solids can be a real problem
