Wanted- Still r&d small batch

Recommended Posts

Curt    0

Hello,

Do you have a small still sitting in the corner of your space collecting dust? Want to unload it and take the kids to Disney Land?

We are looking to buy a small starter/small batch R&D still. Something in the 26-50 gallon range we be perfect. We have currently researched Hillybilly, Mile High, and Still Dragon stills. Everything from those as simple as single boilers with 6 plates to baine marie-types with agitators are under consideration. However, we are trying to keep costs down and still develop quality product while implementing the "starting small" concept. If you have one, know of any available through someone else, or have a particular opionio regarding your favorite R&D still, please let me know.

Much appreciated,

Curt

Sankey Beer keg with internal low density heating elements and 2" copper pipe pot head with leibig/worm condenser. boom. 15G batch test still. Do grain in/hot maceration with caution. Scorching galore.

Thanks PAPAZULU. If you don't mind, could you write me a few quick reasons why SD versus the others? This is the one we understand the least..

Curt,

   You can buy a complete system from StillDragon. If you want to use your own tank you can just buy a column.

They also have there own forum. Talk to Lawrence Taylor, 954-298-9505

We have narrowed this down to the Stilldragon dash or crystal dragon with a 120L boiler OR a hillybilly GEN2 with a 53 gallon or 26 gallon boiler. These two options seem to make the most sense, and cost wise, most economical.

Thoughts? We are still looking for used R&D stills if anyone has one. Thanks

Hi Curt,

I am about to post (3) stills on this forum. Would you like to discuss with me before I post?

We have (2) 26 gallon, 12 plate rectifying columns and (1) 50 gallon stripping still.

We've simply outgrown this solution.

Email is ben@lifeofreilley.net or cell is 315-506-5084 to text. Thanks, Ben Reilley

I'll second Paul on that.... He sales some very nice equipment! We brought a 105 gallon from him and it's just waiting in the distillery for approval from ttb to start making some fine spirits with this fine machine ! Hello Paul it was nice seeing you at the Baltimore ADI expo.
