Copper is required as a catalyst to remove sulphur odours during distillation. These are essential for high alcohol washes, typically over 16% ABV.

Because copper oxidises quickly attention to cleaning is required

To wash your saddles: Remove them (both ceramic and copper, but keep them separate for ease of reassembly).

Clean copper by submerging it for 30 minutes in a solution of 1 Tablespoon of citric acid and 1 gallon of warm water. Then, rinse the copper parts with clean water and let it soak for about 12 hours in a bucket of 1 gallon of water to which 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) has been added. This will neutralize any citric acid left over. Finally rinse again with clean water.

Alternatively you can rinse with a vinegar solution. Once finished give them a thorough rinse 3 or 4 times before putting them back in the condenser.
