StillCraft Original Design Reflux Distillation System for Home Distilling
But what you really need to check out with StillCraft is their new model – the StillCraft Original Design Reflux Distillation System. This thing is incredible. StillCraft offers the new design in 26 Gallon and 55 Gallon capacities. Here’s the info direct from StillCraft:
The 26 Gallon Enhanced System is our most popular and never fails to impress even the most advanced users. We have designed the tank with features typically seen on larger units which provides the ability to sustain consistent quality in a small footprint. Coupled with the newly designed 4″ copper column this package will exceed your expectations.
A modular design enables the addition of components to fully round out your system. Add a 4″ Copper Pot Still Head for situations where reflux is not desirable, a 2 Plate Add-on to increase purity, or a Gin Basket to introduce flavors.
The 55 Gallon model is an economic alternative to the copper systems without sacrificing quality or capacity. This system has been designed with an insulated stainless tank loaded with features and includes the NEW Patent Pending 4″ Copper Reflux Column.
Awesome! The StillCraft Original Design Reflux Distillation System columns feature precision welding (not soldered), temp gauge, multiple thermo-probe ports, etc. The tanks feature 304 stainless steel, sight glass, and all the ports you need.
Maybe most importantly, this awesome moonshine still features StillCraft’s original, patent pending design that’s tested to 92% (you can even get that as high as 95% with the 2 plate add-on)!!! And, of course, it’s got the StillCraft 1 year warranty. Do yourself a favor and check these things out immediately!

Makin’ Moonshine Bottom Line:
StillCraft Copper & Steelworks is a truly professional, commercial-level designer and manufacturer of incredible, well-crafted copper moonshine stills and stainless steel moonshine stills. StillCraft leans hard on its years of commercial moonshine still design and fabrication in bringing its high quality stills for home distilling to the home distiller. With StillCraft, you truly get what you pay for. Check out all StillCraft’s moonshine stills for sale today.
The Copper Still Company is a retailer of high-quality copper pot moonshine stills and split-top moonshine stills. Based out of Seattle, Washington, The Copper Still Company offers high quality moonshine stills for sale that are manufactured by skilled craftsmen in Portugal. The company began producing its moonshine stills out of a passion for distilling and to encourage others to learn about distilling and begin distilling on their own. The Copper Still Company team has over 20 years of combined experience in brewing and distilling and offers everything you’re going to need to purchase a moonshine still.
The Copper Still Company’s use of copper in their moonshine stills helps provide good heating and cooling transference. The copper serves to adsorb sulfur compounds and yeast resulting in a sweeter distillate. The use of copper in the stills also inhibits water-borne microorganisms, improves the aroma of the distillate, and prevents formation of ethyl carbamate, a toxin.
All of The Copper Still Company’s moonshine stills are constructed of 20 gauge sheet copper, providing superior heat distribution. All their stills also include a built-in thermometer. The alembic pot still is assembled using brass solder rather than any riveting. All other joints on the still use either brass, copper or tin lead-free solder.
The Copper Still Company offers both pot stills and split-top moonshine stills for sale. The pot stills are available in four sizes: 1 Gallon, 2.5 Gallon, 5 Gallon, and 10 Gallon. Pot stills are the backbone of traditional distilling practices, and are excellent for home use.
The split-top column moonshine stills are available in three sizes: 1 Gallon, 2.5 Gallon, and 5 Gallon. The split-top column stills allows for a purer distillate as the batch is in the column rather than the pot, as well as allowing the distiller to remove the column, empty the old batch and add a new batch without having to replace and reheat the water.
According to The Copper Still Company, their 1 Gallon Copper Moonshine Still requires the least amount of space to set up, but also products the least amount of moonshine because of it’s small size. Their 2.5 gallon still is a step up in all ways. A higher production amount, but the still requires a small amount of space to set up.
The 5 Gallon Moonshine Still is by far The Copper Still Company’s most popular unit. The 5 gallon is nice compromise between portability, production amount, and set up size. The Copper Still Company’s advice is that if you’re not sure which size to go with, the 5 gallon moonshine still is your best choice.
The Copper Still Company offers free shipping and a 60-day, “No Hassle, No Worries”, 110% money-back guarantee on their stills. Now that’s standing behind your product! Keep in mind that their stills are shipped International Priority from their manufacturer in Europe, which means you’ll typically need to allow a one to two week shipping time. But here’s what you’ll be looking at the day that your new moonshine still arrives:

Mile Hi Distilling is one of the oldest small-scale manufacturers of moonshine stills for sale on the market still in business in the United States today. Mile Hi Distilling claims to be the originator of milk can moonshine stills. Today, Mile Hi Distilling takes pride in every still they produce, which they back up with a 30-day, 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Mile Hi Distilling manufactures its moonshine stills one at a time with strong emphasis on providing high levels of craftsmanship while still providing low costs to their customers. Mile Hi offers both copper moonshine stills and stainless steel moonshine stills, but where they really shine is in the variety of reflux column technologies they have developed over the years.
Mile Hi Distilling’s crowning glory is the Mile Hi Flute, which Mile Hi proudly boasts is the “best-built plated distiller in the world.” The Mile Hi Flute is a distillation reflux column that’s 4” across and 6” high per section. The modular design of the Mile Hi Flute makes it more versatile than any other flute on the market. The Mile Hi Flute has either a quality copper or stainless steel body, large 3” glass viewing windows and copper plates to provide the option of the cost and durability of stainless steel and the distilling advantages of copper. Multiple flute sections can be stacked to provide additional reflux purification, allowing up to 95% content after only a single run.
Mile Hi’s Mighty Mini dual-purpose tower is great on either a reflux or pot still, giving a result of 1.8 quarts of 186 proof (93%) after only an hour, starting with 3 gallons of 18%. Its compact size makes it easy to store.
Mile Hi’s 2” diameter dual-purpose tower is available as a single or two-piece option, to help save storage room, and Mile Hi claims it gets double the production compared to any other 2” diameter reflux tower. The exterior cooling jacket also makes packing easier.
Mile Hi Distilling’s 3” diameter Torpedo is also available with a single or two-piece option, and, like it’s 2” brother, is said to provide twice the production of any other 3” diameter reflux tower moonshine still for sale on the market.
Mile Hi Distilling offers as it’s mainstay moonshine stills in a variety of 8-gallon milk can moonshine still kits, as well as a huge assortment of other moonshine stills for sale ranging from 3 to 53 gallons in capacity, mainly in stainless steel but also with a few copper whiskey pot stills.
Mile Hi’s stainless steel stills are made from 16 gauge stainless steel and are welded with reinforced banding. Many other still manufacturers use an 18 gauge steel that does not provide the same strength and durability or heat transfer as 16 gauge steel. Mile Hi’s 16 gauge steel also provides a more even heat distribution and fewer chances of leaking from a seamed joint. Mile Hi also says they rigorously test every product they sell. As Mile Hi says “If you see a product on our website you can rest assured that it has met or exceeded our own high standards.”
The moonshine stills and heads are just the beginning at Mile Hi Distilling, as they also carry pretty much everything you’ll need to make any variety of moonshine and other distilled products. Their vast website also includes a wide range of how-to’s, plans, videos, ebooks and calculators. A full catalog of their moonshine distillers, moonshine distilling equipment and parts, and moonshine ingredients is available here. And be sure to check out the Mile Hi Distilling moonshine stills in action:

You want it? Moonshine Distiller’s probably got it.
Moonshine Distiller was established to provide a one-stop-shop for all a moonshiner’s distilling needs. They provide all the moonshine equipment, moonshine ingredients, and instructions needed to create quality distilled spirits.
Moonshine Distiller was founded in 2012 from the heart of the Rocky Mountains by an experienced home-brewer turned distiller. Moonshine Distiller was founded on the premise that it was too difficult to get started distilling. The lack of moonshine equipment kits for beginner distillers or solid information on moonshine distilling led to the founding of moonshinedistiller.com, which was designed specifically with the beginning distiller in mind.
To solve these problems, Moonshine Distiller offers stainless steel moonshine stills and equipment, which can be a less expensive, more durable alternative to copper stills. They also offer an extensive selection of moonshine ingredient kits and all of the equipment you’ll need to start your own nano-distillery.
Moonshine Distiller offers complete distillers in two sizes: an 8 gallon stainless steel still and a 13 gallon stainless steel still. You can also purchase both the 8 gallon and the 13 gallon stills in a kit package, which includes either the 8 or 13 gallon milk can boiler, dual purpose still tower, an outdoor propane burner, and a hose connector kit. You can run either still as either a traditional pot still (by running water through the condensor and removing the bottom portion of the tower) or as a reflux still.
