The Copper Dome and Alembic Condenser can be attached to the Grainfather G30 to turn it from a brewing unit to a distilling unit.
The Grainfather Connect Control Box (included with the Grainfather G30) has a ‘Power Control Mode’ where you can specify the power output rather than specifying the target temperature.
To enter (or exit) power control mode;
- Hold the heat button for 6 seconds.
- Once power control mode is active, the LCD screen will change to only display the current temperature and power output. You can use the up/down buttons to change the power output in 5% increments.
The benefit of this for distilling is that you can lower the power output to slow down the speed atwhich the distilled spirits comes out.
This is desirable during the spirit run when you are making cuts to separate the heads and tails from the hearts.
You should make your cuts at specific output temperatures (or ABV) which change constantly, but if you slow down how fast the spirit comes out you have more time to take the measurements and make your cuts at the right time.
