One potential advantage of using a thumper over a reflux still is that it can help increase the alcohol by volume (ABV) of your final product. This is because the thumper acts as an extra column, allowing your still to effectively have more plates.

What’s the purpose of a thumper keg?
A thumper keg is a small barrel that is used to increase the amount of alcohol in a batch of moonshine. It does this by adding more yeast to the mash, which speeds up the fermentation process.
Is a thump keg necessary?
A thump keg is not necessary.
How does a thumper work on a moonshine still?
A thumper is a type of condenser that is used in moonshine stills to help purify the alcohol. The thumper works by taking the vapors from the still and cooling them down so that they condense back into a liquid form. This liquid is then collected and can be used to make moonshine.
How full do you fill a thumper?
A thumper is a homebrewing term for a secondary fermenter. This is where you transfer your beer after the primary fermentation has completed. You want to fill your thumper about three-quarters full. This will leave enough room for the yeast to work and for the CO2 to escape.
Do you need to heat the thumper?
Yes, the thumper must be heated prior to use.
What’s the difference between a thumper and a slobber box?
A thumper is a type of pedal used on a bass drum, while a slobber box is a type of container used to store food scraps.
How much does a 5 gallon still produce?
A 5 gallon still produces about 1 gallon of alcohol per hour.
Why do you throw out the first batch of moonshine?
The first batch of moonshine is often thrown out because it contains high levels of impurities.
How much liquid do you put in your thumper?
A typical thumper holds about 0.5 to 1 gallon of liquid.
What do you charge a thumper with?
A thumper is charged with a high voltage battery.
How big should the thumper be on a still?
A thumper should be about the size of a shoebox.
How do you set up a thumper still?
A thumper still is a type of makeshift still that is typically used to distill alcohol. To set up a thumper still, you will need a container to serve as the boiler, a container to serve as the thumper, and a condenser. The boiler is filled with liquid that is to be distilled, and the thumper is placed on top of the boiler. A condenser is then placed on top of the thumper, and the whole setup is heated. As the liquid in the boiler boils, it will rise up into the thumper and be condensed back into liquid form. The condensed liquid will then drip back down into the boiler, where it will be distilled again. This process will continue until the desired purity is achieved.
What temperature should the thumper be?
The thumper should be at a temperature of 45 degrees Celsius.
Do you put anything in a thumper keg?
Typically, a thumper keg is used to add flavor or help with clarification in the distilling process. When adding flavor, fruits, herbs, or spices are placed in the thumper. To help with clarification, a thumper keg is usually filled with condensed steam.
Can you use a mason jar for a thump keg?
You could use a mason jar for a thump keg, but it might not hold up as well as a regular keg.
