AlcoEngine Pot Still Distilling Distillation Apparatus
This pot still design has been created to allow the delicate compounds that form the complex structure of many whiskeys and gins. This iconic V shape still has been created to capture the vital esters, aldehydes and phenolic compounds that are necessary to give the final spirit a complexity that simply cannot be created any other way.
The whole system is designed to save, time, money and parts, and fit in one box for easier storage and cheaper shipping.
A pure pot still is used when you want the flavour of the wash to come through. For instance, if you ferment fruit or grains, it will allow some of that flavour to enter your distillate. If you use a reflux still, you would just end up with pure, unflavoured vodka. Inject some flavour into your drinks with the Alcoengine Distilling Pot Still!
Fast – 4.5L/hr with alcohol or 2.8L/hr with water
With an all copper construction for smoothness of taste it comes with a digital thermometer and is simple to use.
Just switch it on and collect your alcohol – it couldn’t be simpler than that!
Note: With Robobrew units you will need to purchase the KL03483 stainless lid with 47mm hole. This is sold separately and is not included with the Robobrew unit. The stock glass lid that comes with the Robobrew unit will not be suitable.
No more stuffing around with water flow speed!
Some stills are hard to operate and require fine tuning of the water flow in the condenser. This Alcoengine Design on the other hand just requires a minimum water flow rate and thats it. So the as long as you have enough coolant it doesn't matter how fast your coolent flows through the still. This makes the still far easier to operate than many other brands.
Easiest Still to Use - That's our guarantee
This bulletproof design is so easy to use that we are giving you a guarantee that you will get great spirit in no time flat. All you need to do is make sure you have adequate water/coolent flowing through the head and just about everything else will look after itself.
Compatible with Many Boilers
This still design is compatible with many boiler types. One option is just get a pot and drill a 47 mm hole in the lid and this still will fit no worries. The still also fits many standard boilers such as the standard Turbo Boilers, Robobrew, and we have been told by our customers that it also works with the Grainfather . This still can also fit the top of stainless steel kegs too. So you can easily make your own keg boiler. You can use a 2 inch tri-clover clamp (not included) and then use the clamp to attach this still to the top of a 50L keg. So you will not find a more compatible still design that fits a wide range of boiler types. This can do it all.
Unlike stainless steel stills and stills that are only copper plated, this still is made from solid copper. When your hot spirit comes in contact with copper the copper acts like a catalytic converter and drives sulphur out of the spirit. This process means you get less "off-flavours" and you simply get better quality spirit. Copper is an expensive metal now and it definitely increases the cost of the still manufacture but we can say for sure that there is a very good reason why it's still the preferred material by many serious distillers simply because the results are superior. Don't listen to other people tell you that stainless is the best. There is no substitute for copper and a still like this will last you a lifetime.
Simple Assembly and Setup
This still is mostly assembled but you still have to connect your garden hose and coolant supply. You can just use your garden hose but it's a bit of a waste of tap water so we recommend that you get a tank at least 500 liters in size then use a powerful re circulation pump to drive the still. We would recommend the Ozito 350 watt pump that you can get from bunnings and you can purchase this separately yourself. We wouldn't recommend a pump too small as you need a reasonably powerful pump to push the water through the condenser as there is a lot of flow restriction in the condenser head. When you get the still you just need some Teflon tape and just attach the fittings as show in the photos above in this add. Please make sure you connect all the fittings and check for leaks before you start distilling. There is nothing worse that trying to attach a fitting once the still has heated up.

MK11 Temperature Controller
MKII - Temperature Controller (Heat & Cool) [NEW 4mm Probe for Distillation]
The MKII Temperature controller is an absolute essential device for homebrewers looking to control all parts of the heating and cooling in the brewing process. Control the power of your 2200w elements and cooling devices like a fermentation fridge.
This device will allow you to program step mash temperatures and general control of your HLT/Mash Tun or Boiler. Complete plug and play with whatever application you wish to use it for.
Like controlling the fermentation temperature of your fermenter using a heat belt and a fridge. With programmable temperature profile integration. Set a step fermentation profile to raise the temp near the end of fermentation, or slowly reduce your cold crash gradually to not shock the yeast. This can all be done without the need to go to your temperature controller and manually change it every time. Set & forget!or if you're a distiller. Automate your distilling process with our distillation control feature. Sit back and relax!
- High accuracy 0.1 degree C.
- Dual AU sockets so you can control heating and cooling devices with the one device.
- Made with 30amp cooling relay (for fridges which can draw large amounts of power when turning on after a while) and 10amp heating relays. Rated for use with 10amp appliances.
- Works from -45C up to 120C
- Comes with fully waterproof probe so you can immerse the probe in water.
- Manufactured in compliance with Australian Standards
This temperature controller can be used to automate your reflux still. Our AlcoEngine Reflux Still and AlcoEngine Pot Still can be purchased here:
