Beware of cheap Chinese knockoffs of my towers on other websites.
WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THE BEST BUILT MOONSHINE STILL AVAILABLE! BECAUSE OF THAT YOUR STILL WILL SHIP WITHIN 12 to 18 BUSINESS DAYS. QUALITY TAKES TIME!
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.
A still is defined as apparatus capable of being used to separate ethyl alcohol from a mixture that contains alcohol. Small stills (with a cubic distilling capacity of a gallon or less) that are used for laboratory purposes or for distilling water or other non-alcoholic materials are exempt from our rules. If you buy a small still and use it to distill water or extract essential oils by steam or water extraction methods, you are not subject to TTB requirements. If you produce essential oils by a solvent method and you get alcohol as a by-product of your process, we consider that distilling. Even though you are using and recovering purchased alcohol, you are separating the alcohol from a mixture -distilling. Under regulations in part 29 of title 27, Code of Federal Regulations, TTB has the right to require manufacturers of stills to give the name and address of each customer.
Our boilers are made of 16 gauge stianless steel and are welded not seamed with reinforced banding. Other companies have seamed cans and are less sturdy 18 gauge steel might be similar in appearance to ours but none of them will provide the strength and durability of a Mile Hi. Our heavier gauge stainless steel provides superior heat transfer – something you’ll appreciate once you start your first run.
We rigorously test every product we sell – that includes hotplates, yeasts, and essences. If you see a product on our website you can rest assured that it has met or exceeded our own high standards. And we are always on the lookout for any new product, either large or small, that will make the distilling process easier and more enjoyable for our customers. After all distilling should be a pleasure not a pain.
We have been building High quality moonshine stills for home distilling for over 11 years . Our distillers will produce 95% the first run.
All reflux distillers for home distilling are made with solar power. Mile Hi Distilling is the actual originator of the two-piece tower. Truly a Mile Hi Distilling innovation. Also we are the first and only company to sell milk can moonshine distillers.
The new Milk Can stills come with:
Copper packing or raschig rings
Digital thermometer with both Fahrenheit(°F) and Celsius(°C)
Chemical tolerant hoses
Stainless steel hose clamps
Male and female hose fittings
Stainless steel screen
Pure gum rubber bung
All milk cans now come with domed lids. Having a domed lid will help channel the vapors up to the tower, making the still run more efficiently.
The new premium milk cans have a large 8”opening for easy filling and cleaning. Also the lids clamp down and have a silicone gasket that gives you a great leak-proof seal. We used to build boilers out of stainless steel pails, but it only left a 2” opening to fill and clean. I thought this was very inefficient, and the only way to clean the boiler was to use a chain. So, after working with the manufacture for two years, we finally got the milk cans perfected for distillers.
Mile Hi has also come out with a new 2” and a 3” diameter moonshine reflux towers. Both designs have proven to be much more effective than having 2 crossed cooling tubes at the top of the tower and also are very user-friendly. For about 5 years, we made the reflux towers with two ½” tubes that went straight through the tower near the top. This design was very simple and easy to manufacture, but it was not very efficient. I decided that it was not good enough for my customers and they deserve better. The new towers take more time and material to manufacture, but are definitely more effective and efficient.
