You won’t find a lot about water distillation on this website (hey, we are named Moonshine Distiller for a reason), but this copper still head is ideal for use as a water distiller. This 3-inch still head is what we typically recommend to those who want to distill water. If you are distilling something like pond water, however, you may want to consider a reflux still to help strip all the flavors out.
Don’t get us wrong, however, a copper still head is also great for producing flavorful whiskeys, rums, tequilas, and other distilled beverages. It can be used for neutral spirits (vodka, gin) as well, but again, we would recommend a reflux still to help strip all the bad flavors out.
The 3″ tri-clamp connector on this water distiller tower will allow it to be clamped onto our 8-gallon milk can boiler or an old half-barrel sanke beer keg with an additional 2″ to 3″ adapter. It can also be easily disassembled into 2 pieces for easy cleaning.
This 3-inch still head weighs about 9 pounds and comes with:
–3″ dial industrial thermometer and thermometer plate
-Final product condenser
-Two 3″ silicone gaskets
-Two 3″ tri-clamps
-One 3/4″ clamp and gasket
