This simple and economic pot still head design does a great job allowing the congeners and volatile aromas that form the complex structure of many whiskeys and gins to come through. The V-shaped head was been created to capture these vital esters, aldehydes, and phenolic compounds. For all dark and aged spirits, you'll get everything necessary to give the final spirit a complexity that you wouldn't want to strip away using a still head with more reflux.
It comes with a digital thermometer that simply slots into a thermowell on the back side of the unit to measure temperature. Combine with a distillation lid to use a BrewZilla or DigiBoil as the base for this Alcoengine brand still top.
This unit has easy-to-use half-inch (0.51", 13mm) barbed connections for the water inlet and outlet of the condenser coil inside. Any half-inch PVC or silicone tubing will work. Just cut your tubing to the length you need. Hot tip: although the condenser is efficient and you shouldn't need to run cool or cold condensing water through this unit too fast, consider attaching it with clamps if you'll be running your condenser water at a high flow or high pressure.
