Description  more details



A true complete unit that can be used as a moonshine still, alcohol still, essential oil still, and more. We at Brewhaus do not believe in selling a stripped down unit just to show you a lower price, forcing you to purchase additional items in order to get up and running.


The Essential Extractor Pro Series II 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.


The unit uses a full length column that is more than 3' long, for true reflux operation.  This results in a cleaner, more pure distillate.  We also include your choice of either Ceramic Raschig Rings or Copper Mesh column packing.  While adding copper to the distillation column can offer some definite advantages, many still prefer ceramic rings.  Only Brewhaus offers you a choice of column packing!


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.



Complete system includes:

  • Pro Series II Column with Condenser and 2" Tri-Clamp connector
  • 30qt. (7.5 gallon) High Grade Stainless Steel Kettle
  • Aluminum Diffuser Plate
  • Submersible Water Pump
  • Hose Pack Included (Includes necessary hoses plus chemical tolerant distillate hose, E-Z Clamps, Brass Hose Fitting, Bung, Laboratory Thermometer, column filling material (Ceramic Raschig Rings or Copper Mesh))


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 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.
Kettle Specifications: 304L grade stainless steel, dimensions approx 14"d x 18"h, walls of kettle are approximately 1.2mm thick with heavier bottom.
15 Gallon Premium 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.
Kettle Specifications: 304L grade stainless steel, dimensions approx 14"d x 28"h, walls of kettle are approximately 1.2mm thick with heavier bottom.
Premium Kettle
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 or to add a drain. If you do plan to use it as a drain, don't forget to also add a 1" NTP plug! 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, but it will likely eventually need to be replaced.
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, but they do not add any copper to the moonshine still.
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 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. Adding a parrot to your order isn't necessary in order to distill, but it is a convenient and popular add-on.
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.

Happy so far!
When the kit shipped it arrived quickly. Packed well and no visible damage. Craftsmanship seems good. Definitely well worth the price compared to other similar setups. Have already recommended this to others and will definitely be ordering from here again.

2 weeks to ship, but I wasn't in a hurry. Premium kettle dented in the area for the heat band, no damage to package and small enough to ignore as I can use the dented area for the band clasp so as not to detract from the heating area. All parts ordered arrived, and an impressive looking rig. Haven't loaded it with water for a leak test run yet, but looks well constructed.
Brewhaus- All kettles are inspected when we receive them to ensure that damages are reported.  Damaged kettles are available at a discount, but we do not sell them as pristine kettles.  Please contact us so that we can resolve this issue for you.
