This is a 2-inch stainless steel 2-piece ethanol distilling tower that can be used as either a pot still or reflux still. The 2-inch tri-clamp connector on this ethanol still tower will allow it to be clamped onto our 13-gallon milk can boiler, 8-gallon milk can boiler, or a used half barrel beer keg. You will need to purchase some packing materials (copper mesh or raschig rings) in order to use this for reflux ethanol distillation. We recommend the copper mesh (as it helps to remove sulfides that are produced by distillation) with a liter of raschig rings on top.
This stainless steel distillation tower includes a screened gasket to aid in holding packing materials and to encourage even distribution of the distillate on its way down the column. In many cheaper reflux stills the distillate runs directly down the sides preventing optimal reflux.
