None, it's a tank fitting designed for water tanks and boilers so it's completely safe to use. It doesn't contain lead.
Hi, the condenser feed pipes pass through the column to produce reflux within the column. You could probably expect to get around 80-90% alcohol with this.

Thanks for reading!I used an old still design due to limitations in the materials I could find, the largest column diameter I could get was 28mm. I also wanted to keep the cost as low as possible, but the still works fairly well.
Hi!you can use the calculator here: ( http://homedistiller.org/calcs/cond_calc) to find how much water you will use.
This instructable is amazing.
Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks so much for the vote:)

I'm actually in the UK so I don't have to worry about that :) .(as long as I'm not selling it)
It does work, for what I need, I have produced 90+ percent alcohol with it. If you are looking for an advanced reflux still I suggest you look at the many other instructables for that sort of thing.
Love the instructable! Keep building:)
Hahaha, I was given it by a friend. It works great even though it's old!
Thanks! I'm not too good with electronics, so I might find it tricky to build sensors. Great idea though:)
This wasn't really meant to be a guide on how to distill, rather how to equip yourself for distilling. I'm hoping anyone building this will have researched distillation processes before using it:)(I'll feature your comment for added info)

Thanks for the vote :)I'm making vodka with this still, but I have another pot still I've made a nice rum with. I did use some packing, but as you said it's probably not needed. I probably should put a thermometer in, but I usually just go by smell to test if methanol is present then measure the percentage after.
I meant if you kept the heat input the same:)
How to make a copper reflux still
Yeah, you can use copper mesh for packing, it will help to remove sulphites, but the pipes running through the column should provide enough reflux. Its probably better to use packibg, but I aimed to do this instructable as cheap as possible, so I excluded this.
Ernter's right, the tubes provide a cold surface for the alcohol vapours yo condense on.

Thanks btw gertd4 :)

I think aeroponics uses misters to cover the roots in a mist. There are different kinds of hydroponics like drippers, as you said, but also DWC and NFT (nutrient film technique) hydroponics systems. This is just one kind of hydroponics:) Glad you liked the instructable :)
