I have almost all the materials already. What I don't have is time since I'm starting a business. I don't know if it will happen this year now.

It occurred to me that the can seal to the manifolds will have to be very tight, otherwise water vapor will get into the unit and condense on the glass.

I'm thinking down spout manifolds but the upper manifold would have a copper pipe inside with holes and maybe small nozzles directing the coolant into the top of the cans. The top manifold would surround the pipe and keep moisture contained.
