AlcoEngine - Pot Still Condenser (Gen 2)
A pure pot still is used when you want the flavour of the wash to come through. For instance, if you ferment fruit or grains, it will allow some of that flavour to enter your distillate. If you use a reflux still, you would just end up with pure, unflavored vodka. Inject some flavour into your drinks with the Alcoengine Distilling Pot Still!
Fast – 4.5 Litres per hour with alcohol or 2.8 Litres per hour with water.
With an all copper construction for smoothness of taste it comes with a digital thermometer and is simple to use.
Just switch it on and collect your alcohol – it couldn’t be simpler than that!
Note: With BrewZilla units you will need to purchase the stainless lid with 47 mm hole. This is sold separately and is not included with the BrewZilla unit. The stock glass lid that comes with the BrewZilla unit will not be suitable.
No more trouble with water flow speed!
Some stills are hard to operate and require fine tuning of the water flow in the condenser. This Alcoengine Design on the other hand just requires a minimum water flow rate and that is it. As long as you have enough water flow it doesn't matter how fast your water flows through the still. This makes the still far easier to operate than many other brands.
Easiest Still to Use - That's our guarantee
This bulletproof design is so easy to use that we are giving you a guarantee that you will get great spirit in no time flat. All you need to do is make sure you have adequate water / coolant flowing through the condenser and just about even thing else will look after itself.
Compatible with Many Boilers
This still design is compatible with many boiler types. One option is just get a pot and drill a 47 mm hole in the lid and this still will fit no worries. The still also fits many standard boilers such as the standard Turbo Boilers, BrewZilla's and Grainfather's . This still can also fit the top of stainless steel kegs too. So you can easily make your own keg boiler. You can use a 2 inch tri-clover clamp (not included) and then use the clamp to attach this still to the top of a 50 Litre keg. You will not find a more compatible still design that fits a wide range of boiler types. This can do it all.
Unlike stainless steel stills and stills that are only copper plated, this still is made from solid copper. When your hot spirit comes in contact with copper the copper acts like a catalytic converter and drives sulfur out of the spirit. This process means you get less "off-flavours" and you simply get better quality spirit. Copper is an expensive metal now and it definitely increases the cost of the still manufacture but we can say for sure that there is a very good reason why it's still the preferred material by many serious distillers simply because the results are superior. Don't listen to other people tell you that stainless is the best. There is no substitute for copper and a still like this will last you a lifetime.
Simple Assembly and Setup
This still is mostly assembled but you still have to connect your garden hose and water supply. You can just use your garden hose but it's a bit of a waste of tap water so we recommend that you get a tank at least 500 liters in size then use a powerful re-circulation pump to drive the still. We would recommend one of the Ozito pump's that you can get from Bunnings or any other suitable high-pressure pumps you can purchase this separately yourself. We wouldn't recommend a pump too small as you need a reasonably powerful pump to push the water through the condenser as there is a lot of flow restriction in the condenser head. Flow rate is not as important as high head pressure / maximum pressure capability. When you get the still you just need some Teflon tape and attach the fittings. Please make sure you connect all the fittings and check for leaks before you start distilling.
