The Essential Extractor Pro Series II - Keg Still Kit includes everything you need to distill except the boiler. It comes with a large o-ring to connect it to a US standard-sized beer keg.

This versatile column is 2" in diameter and can be run in pot distillation mode (for making moonshine, whisky, brandy, rum, schnapps, water, and essential oils) or with packing in reflux distillation mode (for distilling ethanol fuel, vodka or any other high-proof neutral spirit for flavoring). 

The full-sized, 2-piece column is used for reflux distillation. For pot distillation, only the top section of the column is used, connecting it directly to your pot, kettle, or beer keg. This complete distillation unit can be used as a moonshine still, alcohol still, essential oil still, and more. Comes with ceramic raschig rings and copper mesh for your column packing. Use the raschig rings for more reflux in reflux distillation mode, and the copper packing in pot still mode to remove sulfur compounds and provide minimal reflux.

About the Pro Series' Cooling System:
The Brewhaus Essential Extractor series columns were designed with the home distiller in mind. Brewhaus chose to place the cooling lines near the top of the distillation column in order to create reflux where it is best utilized, at the top of the tower.  This allows for an effective use of the column filling by causing the refluxed liquid to flow down through it, resulting in a cleaner distillate.  Crossing the cooling lines instead of leaving them parallel results in a much more efficient cooling system, requiring less cooling water while maintaining effectiveness. 

By having the cooling system in direct contact with the rising vapor you achieve more efficient and effective cooling than systems that surround a column with a cooling water jacket.  Those sytems have a slow heat transfer rate through the thick column wall which is much less efficient and concentrates all of the cooling ability around the outside of the column.  The result of jacketed columns is liquid channeling down the walls of the column, while not cooling the majority of the vapor as it is not in contact with the column wall.  While such a system may operate faster, it is at the expense of quality spirit.
