I think I was a little misled on the balls in the past though, never seeing an overhead picture.

ditto. I thought the water dripped over them, but it looks like water flows through them, like a mini condenser using water hot enough to drop the big nasty shit out, but leave the lighter sweeter stuff go through as a vapor.



Grim has discussed them on this board from time to time; here is a fairly concise explanation:

Indeed, thanks for bringing that one back to the front, Chris.

Seems I recall having heard mention that the rectifying spheres aren't actually being used in the distillation process these days, despite being there and in good working order. Does anyone here know, and, if that's the case, why they aren't being utilized?

"Utilized"? guillotine.gif
There are different ways to use them. My guess is that some distillers don't know how to use them and some don't deem them necessary for the liquor being produced. It's also possible that a distiller who uses them wouldn't say much about how and why he does it, as it could certainly separate him from the herd these days.

Indeed. His obsession with burlapy Hessian balls lo these many years is just another reason to admire him.

It may be a perversity on my part, but I can't help but think that the boots worn by the subject of the Black Sabbath song might have been Hessian; they would have been boots with balls, if a tassle might be so referenced.

You gotta believe me.
