This reflux still tower is very similar to the3-inch dual purpose tower that we have, except it is a little bit taller and has four sight glasses welded to it. It is a 3″ stainless steel 2-piece whiskey still tower that can be used as either a pot still or reflux still, but the sight glasses make it great for learning the process of distilling. You will be able to see the reflux action as it happens.
The 3″ tri-clamp connector on this reflux still tower will allow it to be clamped onto our 8-gallon milk can boiler, 13-gallon milk can boiler, or a used on a half barrel beer keg. You must purchase some packing in order to use this as a distilling tower. We recommend the copper mesh as it helps to remove sulfides that are produced by distillation.
This 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.
