Description  more details

 

 

The column for our High Capacity unit is the very same that we supply to small-scale distilleries and for use as a laboratory unit in large distilleries.  No other increased size column available to the home user has this background!

 

Our High Capacity Pro Series II unit uses a larger column than our standard Pro Series II unit, with increased cooling capability and an extended condenser to ensure efficient operation with the increased distillate volume.  The High Capacity unit is capable of distilling at more than twice the speed of standard 2" distillation units while maintaining the highest possible purity!

 

Because of the size of this unit, more input heat is required (minimum of 1500W or use of gas heat recommended).

Just as with our standard Pro Series II system, the Essential Extractor Pro Series II High Capacity is a reflux distillation unit incorporating our Pro Series Cooling System and a 2-piece column for the greatest versatility.  By placing the cooling lines near the top of the distillation column, reflux is created where it is intended- at the top of the tower.  This allows for the most effective use of the column filling by causing the refluxed liquid to flow down through it, resulting in a cleaner distillate.  Crossing the cooling lines instead of leaving them parallel results in a much more efficient cooling system, requiring less cooling water while maintaining effectiveness.  And, by having the cooling system in direct contact with the rising vapor you achieve a far more efficient and effective cooling than systems that surround a column with a cooling water jacket.  The slow heat transfer rate through the thick column wall is much less efficient, and concentrates all of the cooling ability around the outside of the column.  The result of jacketed columns is liquid channeling down the walls of the column, while not cooling the majority of the vapor as it is not in contact with the column wall.  While such a system may operate faster, it is at the expense of quality.

 

The two piece column- another Brewhaus innovation- allows the top portion of the column to attach directly to the kettle, giving you a true Pot Distillation column, without having to purchase another column separately.


 



Solid Stainless Steel construction, using only dairy quality beverage tubing and high grade custom kettle components. We do not use utility pails or dairy milk cans for our kettles, which are not intended for welding or heating

Options & Upgrades

There are many options for you to select when ordering a distiller from Brewhaus, making it possible to almost completely customize your unit.  A description of those options is below.

Kettle Selection
All Brewhaus kettles include an aluminum diffuser plate.  This helps diffuse the heat to avoid 'hot spots' and scorching, and also protects the bottom of the kettle from damage due to excessive heat.
8 Gallon Standard Kettle
Our standard kettle is the lowest cost option, and works well for most people.  However, it can be more difficult to clean, with the only access being through the ferrule in the top of the kettle.  The standard kettle will work on conventional heat sources and induction heat sources.
8 Gallon Premium Kettle
This is the most popular kettle option.  It is made with heavier gauge metal than the standard kettle, and has a removable lid to give full access to the kettle for easy cleaning.  The Sure Seal
TM lid gives a vapor-tight seal, and the wide base and low height make this kettle more stable than most other kettle designs.  A higher grade of stainless steel make the premium kettle extremely corrosion resistant, however, the use of such a high grade of stainless steel make this kettle unusable on induction heat.
8 Gallon Induction Kettle
The same moulds that are used to produce our 8 gallon premium kettle are also used to produce our 8 gallon induction kettle.  The difference between the premium and induction kettles is that the induction kettle uses a lower grade of stainless steel in order to work on an induction cooktop, making it slightly less corrosion resistant.
15 Gallon Induction Kettle
Brewhaus' 15 gallon premium kettle is made using the same moulds and grade of stainless steel as our 8 gallon premium kettle.  The 15 gallon kettle is approximately 10" taller than the 8 gallon kettle, nearly doubling the total volume.
Premium Kettle
Add-ons
1" NPT Couplings
NPT Couplings can be added to your premium kettle to allow you the option of using internal heating elements to heat your distiller.  Because of the lighter gauge material, couplings cannot be added to our standard kettles.
1" NPT Plugs
NPT plugs can be used to seal NPT couplings when they are not in use.
Column Packing
Copper Mesh
Copper mesh is our most popular column packing as copper can neutralize sulfur compounds formed during fermentation as the vapor flows through it.  If kept clean, copper column packing can last a very long time.
Ceramic Raschig Rings
Ceramic Raschig Rings offer the greatest combination of surface area and void space (air space), resulting in slightly higher proof from most reflux distillations.  They are much easier to keep clean than copper mesh, and can last almost forever.
Thermometer
Laboratory Thermometer
This is a standard grade, liquid filled thermometer.  It reads in both Fahrenheit (0oF - 230oF) and Celsius (-10oC - 110oC).
Digital Thermometer
This is a standard grade digital thermometer with a swivel head.  It reads in both Fahrenheit (-58oF - 572oF) and Celsius (-50oC - 300oC).
Solar Digital Thermometer
The Solar Digital Thermometer is a high-grade meter with a high degree of accuracy (+/-1%).  It has a stainless steel body and probe, with a swivel heat and built-in 1/2" NPT coupling.  The Solar Digital Thermometer runs on solar power with a battery backup.  The Fahrenheit version has a range of -50oF - 320oF, and the Celsius version has a range of -50oC - 160oC.

The Solar Digital Thermometer upgrade includes the Solar Digital Thermometer, Tri-Clamp End Cap with 1/2" NPT coupling, Tri-Clamp, Gasket, and the addition of a Tri-Clamp ferrule to the top of the distiller column.

Stainless Steel Chain
Stainless Steel Chain
If you are selecting the standard kettle then the stainless steel chain can be very useful for cleaning the kettle if anything gets scorched or dried onto the inside of the kettle.  Simply drop the chain into the kettle, add water, and 'swish' it around.  The chain will act as a pot scrubber, but will not introduce iron to the surface of the kettle.
Stainless Steel Parrot
Stainless Steel Parrot
The Stainless Steel Parrot enables you to take real-time proof readings when you distill alcohol by connecting the parrot to the output from your distiller.
In addition to the above options, we are also able to do custom work to your specifications.  Please inquire if you are interested in custom work.

Overall good.
first time distilling anything. Produced what it was suppose to. This is an awesome unit. The flow control valve supplied needs to be changed. A quarter turn ball valve is no good for throttling and exact temperature control. This needs to be replaced with at least a globe valve, needle valve would be best. Don't cheap out and get the lab grade thermometer. The one supplied me was not accurate at all. 2 degrees high on the low side and 4 degrees low on the high side. The instruction booklet was very informative and I could not have started without it. It was however hard to follow at times with the bouncing between quarts and liters, and a professional should proof read it for flow.That said, this still is the bomb. I am a complete novice and I was able to produce exactly what was advertised. Brewhaus, you are me new favorite pastime.

PS 2 High Capacity Distiller
Purchased this unit a little over a year ago and immediately achieved great results. Have used it both as a pot still and reflux still; the unit works as advertised. However,the rubber stopper that holds the thermometer at the top of the column is difficult to remove when finished. A recommendation would be to have a threaded stainless steel cap at the top of the column with a removable rubber stopper, facilitating removal. Since the unit is beautifully crafted, do yourself a big favor and purchase the premium kettle... well worth the small extra cost. !

PS II HC
Really well built. Worked first time with little knowledge and produced fantastic results. Well worth the wait!

Outstanding quality and performance
Received this about a month ago with one of the fermenter kits and Turbo 48 yeast. Valve kit used to control flow to column. First run was 6 gallons and yield was 4 quarts 180 proof and an additional 2/3 quart at ~150 proof when I cut it off. The run duration was ~4.5 hours. Very pleased.
