1 x 500g Bag - Stainless Steel & 1 x 100g Packet - Copper Saddles
500g of Stainless Steel Saddles is enough
to fill a Still Spirits T500 column condenser with saddles shaking into place as you fill.
These are now preferred over ceramic as the ceramic absorbs the unwanted impurities and smells but these new stainless steel saddles help with the refluxing action
that removes these impurities more.
Stainless steel saddles are also not porous so they last a lifetime.
100g of Copper Saddles.
Copper is required as a catalyst to remove sulphur odours during distillation.
* These are essential for high alcohol washes typically when over 16% ABV.
To wash your saddles:
Remove them (both stainless steel and copper, but keep them separate for ease of reassembly) from the column and soak them in vinegar. Once finished give them a thorough rinse 3 or 4 times before putting them back in the condenser.
You only have to rinse your column and saddles every 5-10 distillations.
