Beer keg & stainless steel kettle not included. Our still columns and condensers are all made from copper pipe because it conducts heat better than stainless steel. This allows for better control and stability, and improves the outcome of the final distillation in terms of flavor. Copper also reduces bacterial contamination (which is why it is also used for water pipes) and absorbs the sulfur produced during fermentation.
Copper has been used to make stills since ancient times, and as successive generations have found, it remains the best option thanks to its unique properties and natural advantages in the distilling process. For superior results, use copper like the master distillers do. We use only silver solder with water soluble flux and food grade silver brazing to construct this device. It is built using the same methods that professional distillers use to build their stills. The distiller column is a 2" diameter type L copper pipe that is 12" tall.
We do not use cheap thin walled DWV pipe like our competitors. Ommercially mass produced Chinese stills are made from stainless steel only because it is cheaper than copper. Our stills are designed to combine the best of both worlds, the durability and ease of cleaning that a stainless steel kettle has to offer combined with the natural advantages of a copper column and condenser. The 2 stainless steel ferrule on the bottom of the unit allows the column to be clamped onto any stainless steel beer keg or commercially available kettle. The condenser is fully adjustable and detachable for cleaning and storage.
This distiller can be hooked up to a garden hose or a submersible pump, which can be used for a recirculating cooling system if a garden hose is not an option. Here are links to some of our other products.
