tl5612 Posted July 2, 2015 Share Posted July 2, 2015 I've read the other forum posts. But just looking for a bit of advice on a closed loop cooling system for our condenser. Original solution was a cooling tower. But this cannot work now, as we do not have the outside space. Second solution is a small tank and very powerful electric chiller. But this is very, very expensive. Third solution, is two large tanks (flowing one into the other - alternating) with a chiller element cooling the full tank overnight. Our still is only 500 litres in charge capacity. Rectifying to make gin from 55% abv NGS charge. With a run expected to last 8 hours. How much cooling water are we likely to require? The estimate I've received from the still manufacturer seems very high - at around 27,000 litres per run? Does anyone use that much cooling water for a similar set up?
