13 Gallon Still, 3" Copper Reflux Column with 4 Sight Glasses. Moonshine, Vodka, E-85
This moonshine still has it all! This 13 gallon boiler comes paired with a beautiful 3" Copper Reflux Column.
This Column can be run in either reflux mode to make Vodka and E-85 Ethanol, or you can run it in pot still mode to make Whiskey or Moonshine. To run your column in pot still mode, turn the water off to the Dephlegmator and take the copper packing out of the column, or you can leave it in for improved flavor.
The column is built from heavy gauge, hard drawn copper. We use solid sanitary TIG welds, which are much stronger than Soldering or Brazing. This column gives you the best of both worlds. You get the strength and durability of stainless steel, and the flavor improving qualities of copper.
This column comes with:
- 3" Tri Clamp with 3" Silicone Gasket for connecting the column to the still.
- Commercial grade, 3" face, thermometer.
- Enough structured copper packing to fill the column.
- 3" Tri Clamp Dephlegmator connection with 3" Tri Clamp and 3" Silicone Gasket.
- Built in copper Liebig condenser.
- 1/2" hose barb connections on the condenser and Dephlegmator (pre-condenser) for cooling water.
- Dephlegmator (pre-condenser) for increasing and controlling proof.
- Four 2" sight glasses, so you can watch the action inside the column.
The boiler is made from high quality, heavy gauge 304 food grade stainless steel, has beautifully rounded curves, and is polished to a mirror finish inside and out. It comes equipped with a 2" Tri Clamp port, with clamp and face plate. This port can be used with a 2" heating element conversion plate to install a water heating element. This boiler can also be fired with a propane burner. The bottom of the boiler is flat and recessed, stands at 28" tall, and has a base diameter of 13 3/4".
This Boiler comes with:
- 1" drain valve with down spout
- Carrying handles
- 1.5" filler neck with tri clamp cap
- 3" column connection
The 24 gauge copper stills that you see elsewhere on the internet are so thin that you can take your hands and crush them like a huge beer can. The Chinese Stainless Stills and the Stills made from cook pots are even worse. The stainless in them is as thin as paper.
If you flip a 24 gauge copper still, or one of the cheap stainless stills, with your thumb and fore finger it will make a dent. You can punch this stainless milk can boiler with your fist, and you might break your fist, but there won't be a dent.
Our stills and still boilers are made from heavy gauge stainless and are built to last a lifetime.
This item comes with a 1 year warranty which covers manufacturing defects and leaks.
Built to last a Life Time!
Hand it down to future generations!
