Q: Can you put copper mash in side the 3" column to make it more efficient? I see this done in column pot stills.

A: In theory it should work. We have never tried it, therefore we can't recommend it. The best thing to do is use a dedicated reflex still.

Q: About how much water is normally used to mash in the grain? The PDF instructions are kinda vague on that.

Q: How long does it take to get a gallon of whiskey?

A: To get a whole gallon from a 5 gallon ferment would be hard, as the wort would have to be of very high gravity (1.090 or higher). More realistically, figure on getting 3 quarts from a typical whiskey mash with a starting gravity of at least 1.065. As far as time, the mash ferments for about two weeks before being run, so figure 2-3 weeks to get 3 quarts of raw white whiskey.

Q: What is the diameter of the lid? How is the column connected to the lid? Is the column removable? Thanks!

A: 12.5" overall diameter. The lid has a 47mm hole in the center, and the column is connected with a large brass nut which screws on underneath. A silicone gasket seals the connection.
