You will see a lot of 2" and 3" towers that look like ours on the internet even using the same names Dual Purpose and Traditional. Beware that these towers are knock offs or our towers that are made in China and are not the original Mile Hi Distilling Dual Purpose and Traditional Towers built in our shop located in Denver Colorado.
As a one stop shop for your distilling needs we have decided to go with the " if you can't beat them - join them" attitude and sell these Chinese knock offs ourselves at a much lower price. So if you are interested take a look at our Economy Moonshine Distillers Page.
Great, you are looking at buying a moonshine distiller, but can’t decide which one. Well, first of all, I want to thank you for looking on Mile Hi Distilling. We have the largest selection of distillers and supplies than any other company. And I can guarantee you the higher quality at the lowest prices. We are the oldest and most experienced still manufacturer in the United States. I’ve worked hard for 13 years finding the best suited supplies for the fun hobby.
If you can’t decide on which type of moonshine distiller, I would suggest a dual purpose or a 2-in-1 tower that works as a pot and reflux.
A pot still simply condenses the alcohol vapors that come off the boiling mash. This will result in an alcohol at about 40-60% purity, with plenty of flavor in it. If this distillate were put through the pot distiller again, it would increase in purity to around 70-85% purity, and lose a bit of its flavor.
A reflux still does multiple distillations in one single run, by having packing in the tower allowing vapor to condense and drop back down through the packing. This "reflux" of liquid helps clean the rising vapor and increase the % purity. The taller the packed column, and the more reflux liquid, the purer the product will be. The advantage of doing this is that it will result in a clean
Our cans are welded not seamed. Many other companies are selling seamed cans that are very similar to ours. With the metal expanding and contracting with heat the seams could start to leak. That’s why we only sell welded cans.
WARNING:Distilling alcohol at home, also known as moonshine making is illegal in many countries. But you can use these distillers for many other uses. Like water, vinegars, essential oils, and even engine fuel. It is the responsibility of the user to abide by the laws of your country. Mile Hi Distilling strongly discourages any unlawful use, and is not responsible for any damage or injury caused by misuse or unlawful use.
Under Federal rules administered by TTB, it depends on how you use the still. You may not produce alcohol with these stills unless you qualify as a distilled spirits plant. However, owning a small still and using it for other purposes is allowed. You should also check with your State and local authorities - their rules may differ.
