What is a Distilling Parrot?
A distillers parrot is a piece of kit that allows you to take alcohol gravity measurements using an Alcometer continuously throughout your pot or reflux run. It should be placed inline of your distillation outlet so that the drops of distillate fall directly into the tallest collection cone. But only placed in-line AFTER you collect your foreshots.
You will then place your Alcometer gently into the lower cone piece (be careful not to drop it in without any liquid/distillate in there, as Alcometers are fragile)
Kit comes complete with:
- Silicon hose
