Do you want to get everything you need to start distilling at a savings? This package features the 17 gallon capacity 65 Liter Digiboil (requires 220 volts), as well as the pure copper Kegland Pot Still Condenser with quick disconnect hose fittings, a distilling lid, a quick disconnect cooling hose kit, as well as the KegLand Distilling Parrot with Alcometer for monitoring your run. Get it all in this package and save $71.00 over separate purchase prices. A pot still like this is best for Whiskey, Rum, Bourbon, and Tequilla, as it does not strip out the wash flavors.
The Digiboil boiler features precise digital temperature control, so you can set your target boiling temperature to whatever you prefer, which helps prevent a too rapid rise in temperature and the resultant off flavors in the distillate. For example, set it to 200° F at the start of your run, and later on when you are near the end, raise it to 210° F. This keeps the boil rising gradually (remember, alcohol starts boiling at 173° F) and contributes to a smoother spirit and higher yield.
To monitor your run, the solid stainless KegLand Distilling Parrot is included with an Alcometer Hydrometer that floats as the run progresses, giving you a real time alcohol strength reading from start to finish.This is vital as you need to know when to stop your run,typically when the distillate drops to 35% to 40% alcohol.
You will need to run cold water through the condensing column while your one hour run is in progress. Our Cooling Connection kit with 20' of hose and quick disconnect hose fittings is included for this, and has a female garden hose thread inlet so you can get cooling water from any garden hose style faucet.
Note: This combination is a still unit only for distilling fermented washes, and does not have a mashing basket for wort production. See our C30 Mashing accessory if you want mashing capability.
A 220 volt plug is required to run this system. Although this holds 17 gallons, figure it is limited to 12 gallons or so for distilling, as you do not want the pot boiling up into the distilling column.
