The Proofing Parrot Kit is all copper construction with a water cooling coil which brings the output spirit temperature to around 20 degrees, allowing for continuous alchometer readings without having to do corrections. Comes with hoses and connectors and a “perch” to mount the Proofing Parrot Kit onto the boiler. If using an extension or Sightglass mount the perch so it rises or sits up from the boiler, if using just the pot or reflux condenser mount the perch the other way round so it follows the line of the boiler lid, see the photos for examples.
Connect water to the Parrot first, then use the supplied hose and fittings to connect to the pot or reflux condenser. Only insert the alcometer once Parrot is full of spirit, and flowing out the spout.
