This is full copper 4 x 3" modular still with 4 bubble plates colume with dephlegmator and condensor as well as a copper parrot and helmet between.
The reason for using a multi-bubble plates colume is to purify the alcohol like multi-time distillation. For detail, the below link will help you to understand the principles.(copy the link and paste into browser)
The reason for using copper for the distillation colume mainly because
Copper absorbs sulfur-containing compounds and yeast cells which are produced during fermentation and the presence of which is undesirable in the distilled spirit or essential oil. Sulfur compounds and yeast cells
smell. Copper keeps the distillate sweet;
Copper reduces bacterial contamination;
Copper has excellent heat transfer properties, helpful for both heating and cooling of vapours;
Copper prevents the production of ethyl carbamate which is a toxic substance formed from cyanides (cyanides are found in the stones of fruits);
Copper also improves the quality of the final product. If the quality of the mash is not microbiologically perfect, copper will improve the aroma of the final product.
- The reason and advantage to use a helmet is the copper helmet gives more headspace and surface area, which respectively helps prevent any foaming from gumming up the works and increases passive reflux. Passive reflux helps with increasing ABV and giving a more pure final spirit. The angle of the lyne arm coming off of the copper helmet or alembic hat also has an effect on the passive reflux of the system. As a general rule, a downward angle sends more congeners and heavier flavors to the product condenser, whereas an upward angle sends fewer congeners and gives a lighter flavor.
This still comes with is a 65L Digi boiler(240V/3500w/15amp plug) and heavy-duty Copper dome/lid. Also we shall give you free a power regulator or power station which allow you to run this still by a 10 amp plug with power output control. It will take longer time for distillation but it will help you solve the problem to find a 15 amp power supply at home if you don't have one. Anyway, the stepless power output control will give you more flexibility for power control.

The power station can afford short time output >2000w but try to avoid using it because it may burn the power station. To be safe, keep output <2000w. And the power station can only adjusted when the heater turn on.
