The 65Liter size is the total rated size brimful, so typically if you are using this as a beer boiler you would probably only fill it up to 50-60L so you had 5-10 litres of head space to boil comfortably.

The boiler has a quality made stainless tap with stainless barb and 1/2inch thread so you can attach the wide range of other half inch fittings such as camlocks and many other fittings that we can supply.

The unit comes with a concealed element for easy cleaning.

The digital display can be set from 0C and up to 140C with 1C increments and 1C resolution on the display.

The side of the boiler is pre-marked with graduations in litres and gallons that are accurate to +/- 1 liter.

The size of this unit without still attachments is:
42cm Diameter
74cm high


The AlcoEngine Copper Reflux Still
Some stills are hard to operate and require fine tuning of the water flow in the condenser.  These stills include the t500 and other coolant management or (CM) designs.  This means that you have to constantly adjust the flow of water/coolant to get consistent results.  This can be also an issue if you are using a pressure pump that cycles on and off in your house or it can even be an issue if you flush the toilet and momentarily the pressure in your hose feeding the still drops.  This still on the other hand is a FM design which controls the flow of spirit directly.  So the as long as you have enough coolant it doesn’t matter how fast your coolant flows through the still.  This makes the still far easier to operate than many other brands like the t500.  The purity of the spirit can be controlled by two included flow control inserts that are show in the attached photos.  These brass inserts come with a 1.0mm hole and a 0.6mm hole.  As the hole gets smaller you the speed of which the spirit comes out of the still will decrease and this will in turn increase your reflux ratio and therefore give you higher purity.  This makes this still design Extremely easy to use as you just open up the ball valve and let the flow control insert of your choice do the job.

 

Typically the 1.0mm insert is good for stripping runs and then on the final cut you can use the 0.6mm insert.  Alternatively you can use the ball valve to control the spirit flow too but this is a sensitive adjustment and required a bit more skill for this type of manual adjustment so we recommend you just use the brass inserts that come included.

 

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 head and just about everything 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 47mm hole in the lid and this still will fit no worries.  The still also fits many standard boilers such as the standard Turbo Boilers, Robobrew, Grainfather etc. 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 2inch tri-clover clamp (not included) and then use the clamp to attach this still to the top of a 50L keg.  So you will not find a more compatible still design that fits a wide range of boiler types.  This can do it all.

 

Solid Copper
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 coolant 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 500liters in size then use a powerful recirculation pump to drive the still.  We would recommend the Ozito 350watt pump that you can get from Bunnings and 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.  When you get the still you just need some teflon tape and just attach the fittings as show in the photos above in this add.  Please make sure you connect all the fittings and check for leaks before you start distilling.  There is nothing worse that trying to attach a fitting once the still has heated up.
