Dephlagmeter needed for just two plates?


Recommended Posts

Quick question. For rum or whiskey, would a pot still with just two bubble plates need a dephlagmeter? And, is there a nickname for a dephlagmeter that is easier to say? thank you

It is required if you want to utilize the capability of your trays/plates. Without the dephlegmator, you can still get some reflux in your column (via radiated heat) and build liquid in your trays but they won't perform any real proof uplift or reflux without the dephlegmator returning cool condensate back to the pates. Your two plate column will act largely like a pot still with a long neck.
