Great electric reflux still for those looking to make neutral spirits and vodkas. This water management style still can easily run 90% ABV (180 proof) spirit with little effort to dial in. The T500 column is probably one of the best home reflux columns on the market, having sold tens of thousands worldwide.
This complete still kit includes:
- Turbo 500 Boiler
- Distilling Lid
- Pall (raschig) ring packing (copper and stainless)
- Stainless T500 Reflux Condenser with digital thermometer
- All tubing (hosing) needed
If you're feeling adventurous you can remove the packing from the column and use it as a pot or alembic still. You can also add a gin basket as an accessory for making gin and other infused spirits.
Assembling this column is quite simple, but here's an important tip- to attach the condenser to the lid of your boiler, you will need to unscrew the nut at the base of the condenser. When doing this, be sure to hold the condenser upside down while unscrewing the nut. The T500 condenser comes prefilled with copper and stainless steel saddles. These saddles are loose and will spill out if the base nut is removed while the condenser is upright.
