Copper Parrot Parts
Insert your proofing hydrometer into the parrot and easily monitor the proof of your run, in real time, as you are distilling. This is the easiest, most convenient, and most reliable way to monitor and measure alcohol proof during a distillation run. Using a proofing hydrometer and this parrot, you will be able to measure the alcohol percentage of fuel alcohol very easily.
