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 Patent Pending 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.

Our Keg Kit includes all of the items in our Complete Unit, with a Keg Adapter (including clamp and o-ring for keg) in place of our kettle.

Keg Kit includes:

Pro Series II High Capacity Column with Condenser and Tri-Clamp connector

Tri-Clamp reducer with clamp and o-ring for keg

Submersible Water pump

Hose Pack Included (Includes necessary hoses plus chemical tolerant distillate hose, E-Z Clamps, Brass Hose Fitting, Bung, and Laboratory Thermometer, column filling)

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!


The Essential Extractor Pro Series II High Capacity unit offers all of the benefits of our standard Pro Series II unit, but with the ability to distill at over twice the speed of 2" diameter systems!  It is a reflux distiller utilizing a 2-piece column, offering a tall true Reflux Column as well as the ability to attach only the top portion of the column to the kettle, resulting in a true Pot Distiller system.  This development allows you to have both a Reflux Distiller and a Pot Distiller without having to purchase two separate columns, yet allowing you all of the benefits of both methods of distillation.  While a single-piece column can be used in a Pot Distillation mode, the height of the column makes it a less than perfect solution.  The Pro Series II High Capacity system is very easy to assemble and operate, yet offers extremely high purity distillate.


As with all of the Essential Extractor units, the column uses a tri-clamp fitting making it compatible with a standard US (Sanke type) beer keg with the addition of an adapter (available separately).


The Pro Series system was the first to incorporate the Patent Pending top-mount, crossed cooling line system.  This cooling system puts the cooling where it should be- near the top of the column.  Forcing reflux at the top of the column causes the condensed liquid to run down through more of the packing, as well as causing a rapid temperature drop immediately before the distillate take-off.  This helps to ensure that only vapor with the lowest boiling point passes the cooling system, resulting in higher purity distillate, regardless of what product you are distilling.


As with all of our distillation units, the Essential Extractor Pro Series II High Capacity unit is made of 100% Stainless Steel.  Included with the keg kit is everything that you need to get started, excluding your heat source and beer keg:


  • 2-piece Stainless Steel distillation column, made from dairy quality beverage tubing with 316 Grade Stainless Steel Tri-Clamp fittings, and 316 Grade Stainless Steel Condenser with Stainless Steel Condenser Jacket
  • 2 Chemical and Heat Tolerant Tri-Clamp Gaskets
  • 2 Tri-Clamp Clamps
  • Tri-Clamp Reducer with 2" Clamp and O-ring for keg
  • Copper Mesh column filling
  • Pure Tan Rubber Stopper
  • Laboratory Grade Thermometer
  • All necessary PVC hoses for cooling system
  • Chemical Tolerant distillate collection hose
  • All necessary Spring Hose Clamps
  • Brass Hose Fitting for connection to garden hose or outdoor hose bib (for direct water flow)
  • Submersible Pump (for re-circulating cooling water)
  • Instruction Booklet
  • Lifetime Warranty

Quality Takes time
I just received my product last week and did my first run yesterday. This is a high quality piece of work and product was great. I will admit that I was frustrated with the time it took to arrive, but Rick was wonderful about responding to my emails and being honest about delays. I am looking forward to enjoying my new hobby.

Still Waiting
Placed my order 30 business days ago when it was stated "20-25 business days till ship" 30 days and still hasn't shipped. Called and basically got an "Oh well, what you want me to do about it? We have a lot of orders ahead of you." Really? I'm sure this is a great product if I EVER receive it but so far Customer Service sucks.

Just received my pro series ll high cap column, this thing is a work of art. I haven't had the pleasure of using it yet... but felt the need to say to Brewhaus that the description of this column and pictures doesn't do it justice. It is by far the most professional and quality driven product I have seen yet. I am very happy with the purchase I have made, and your staff that made contact with me via e-mail and by phone were very professional.

A good product
This unit worked great for me,but on a 15.5 gallon keg it came out a little tall and very hard to get heated up,I am sure it would work even better on a smaller keg. For my first atempt I only got 87% but had problems with my heat source.I am very pleased, and am sure to do better next time.The turbo 48 really inpressed me. I am definately going to invest in a Brewhaus Pot and 1500w heater. Thanks
