What type of alcohol can I make with this copper reflux still?
Read about the feature of this model and recommendation in which cases it’s worth buying.
There can be a lot of debate among distillers over which type of moonshine still is the best. We would like to make it clear. This distiller has reflux (dephlegmator), it means that comparatively to pot stills, reflux stills are designed to create a higher proof with little to no flavor alcohol. Reflux still is like a lot of pot stills assembled together that’s why it can make multiple distillations in a single run. This is how vodka and rum are distilled and then just diluted to proof safe for human consumption. Reflux still is great for producing high-quality vodka, rum, grappa, tequila, higher proof whiskey.
So, if you make mash from potatoes, sugar, malt, cactuses, mixed fruits, rests of grapes, or some dubious liquors — we would recommend this copper reflux distiller. Reflux column and copper material prevent you from small mistakes during the process and you will get high quality 60%-85% abv alcohol.
For specially chosen fruits, we would recommend our pot stills, to save the origin flavor even if it takes more time.
How does reflux still work?
Few words about the process.
Simply put, a reflux still is a specific type of still which is designed to create higher proof alcohol with a more neutral taste. Reflux still differ from pot stills as they have an additional condenser (called a reflux condenser or dephlegmator) at the top of the column which causes the alcohol vapour to condense to liquid and drip back down the inside of your column, turning back into vapour and traveling up the column again. The cycle of vapour climbing up the column and dripping back down as liquid over and over again is called refluxing. This refluxing of vapour and liquid purifies the alcohol, leaving behind water and unwanted flavours until you have a neutral spirit. This refluxing of liquid inside of the column can be controlled by the flow rate of water going through your reflux condenser. A higher flow rate will result in the more cooling of the reflux condenser, therefore creating more reflux inside the column, resulting in a higher purity of ethanol.
What is included in the package?
What do I need to start distilling?
- Stove (electric or gas)
- Central water supply or pump for circulating water to the cooler.
- After receiving the distillate, you will need hydrometers to monitor ABV. We recommend buying separately in the nearest store or on our website)
- Mash \ Prepared alcohol (distilled), yeast
Why do we use copper?
Not just elegant to look at copper provides a smoother taste by removing strong-smelling sulfides. Major distilleries use copper for this reason.
