    The next batch already brewing and almost ready for the still.
    I must say that I am pleasantly surprised with the outcome of
    the first batch. I envisaged a whole new learning curve and rocket
    science in the making. Although there is still lots of room for
    improvement! Like the improved bung that will replace the existing
    one,...

    Very observant you are. Saw this on other websites as well.

    Jip Jigsaw has it. The idea is that your coldest cooling water is at the outlet so your product is chilled as low as possible. If you introduce the cold watter where the product is the hottest you only cool to a midpoint where the to fluid Temps are as close as possible to each other
