This is a beautiful and very well made boiler. The fittings are precisely made and everything fits together beautifully.
We made a 1" copper reflux column arm and had it it threaded to flange attached to an aluminum pressure cooker as the boil kettle, but it leached aluminum in the wash and I wanted to eliminate any metallic flavor or other chemicals in the distillate from our homemade set up. I also wanted a less leaky boil kettle. I also got the 2" clamp and 2" silicon gasket for use with boiler along with the 2” ferrule cap with 1” female NPT. This did the trick and because of it's size I can use it to make all grain beers as well. I love this thing and love using my new set up!

This boiler is just right for what I do. The design and work are perfect. Couldn't have done in any other way as effectively for the price. Thanks so much.

I have received my 8 gal still and column. I have not used it yet but can say the constructed quality of this unit looks very good. I do not believe I will have any negative issues with it. Thanks Mile Hi

Great pot, the welding and workmanship is unbeleviable on all Mi High products. used to use a Hot Plate, burnt up, went to the heating element runs it fast have to be very careful when bringing up to tempture. Other then that makes 170 to 190 proof every time using a reflux. Love it keep it up Mile Hi

The shipping time was less then a week. The cans are built well. I ordered my 8 gal with a 3" lid opening instead of the 2". If you have a 2' tower, you can buy a 3" to 2" reducer. You can run a 3 or 2", I have both. I like the fact that these cans have a tri-clamp, instead of pull-down clamps. They work much better, and you can adjust pressure on the gasket. Good price, and well built.

I used the 3 gallon can for years. Finally upgraded to the 8 gallon can. Works so much better since I do 6 gallons of mash at a time
Should have done it sooner.

Bought two of these cans, one for beer run and the other for spirit run. Both are awesome with the heating element and thermometer added. Couldnt ask for a better system. The distiller on the top is the mini tower w/dephalgamater?(spelling). MileHi is a awesome company.

This is a great can. I just wish I ordered a bigger flute with is. The 2" take for ever to distill with. Oh well, gotta save for a bigger flute. But I love this can.

I believe this tank could contain a small nuclear explosion its built so well. Which is good because UPS did a number on the box it was shipped in! This tank should last a life time
