comment What do you get if you distill mead?
and not in answer to the original question, but as an aside...I just did exactly this with half blackberry mead and half orange blossom and it tastes very good...the flavor of the both the honeys came thru, but very lightly as you might imagine. After it ages and mellows a bit, I hope that it's not so "hot"

comment keeping the wort pump primed seems to have a learning curve
yep....well, the outlet is at 12 o'clock...the inlet is a center port. And the chiller is completely above the outlet.

comment keeping the wort pump primed seems to have a learning curve
I did have all the air out at the start...the silicone tubing is translucent, so I can see where the fluid is. The pump is lower than the outlet of the kettle and is pushing up thru the chiller. I have pictures of the setup, but I'm not exactly sure how to post them here...as soon as I figure it out, I'll post them.

do you heat with propane or with natural gas? and do you do anything about the water vapor or just look at it as a good smelling humidifier?

currently using propane...if I move to the basement, there is NG very close to where I'd need it, so I can change over, if it comes to it.
