  1. Why not own a Figgins Reciprocator® distillation system? 550 US gallons ~ best value for a still of this volume twin 1000-liter kettles two 24" reflux spheres patented, innovative design ten CIP zones agitator for faster warming overbuilt condenser for water conservation three-port dephlegmator for cooling flexibility temperature-sensing ports for easy data collection only six plates needed to reach 96.2% ABV in second pass column available is 316 stainless steel with copper bubble plates, or all-copper pot-still or pot-an
  2. Hi Matt ~ If 120 GPH is sufficient through-put, you would do well to consider the CF-1000, built by Headframe Spirits / Headframe Stills in Butte, Montana: https://www.headframestills.com/ Let me know what direction you decide to take, as I can suggest a design of my own if you need another option. All the best, Rusty
  3. Have you ever seen this vendor? Glacier Tanks has a substantial selection: https://www.glaciertanks.com/manways-and-manholes.html
  4. Try Berlin Packaging for any small-quantity needs: https://www.berlinpackaging.com/1750-ml-clear-glass-alex-gripper-liquor-decanters/
  5. Both the jacketed and unjacketed model are in stock in Taylor, Texas. www.StPats.com. If on the West Coast, check with www.AgerTank.com, although I believe that they only stock the 4000-liter model currently. The Letina mix tank does make a great mash kettle, and it doubles as a vessel for rapid incorporation of reduction water into cask-strength spirits.
  6. Thank you! Hmmm, an exact flow rate figure depends on so many variables with this rig, as with all others: Pot still, or pot-and-column mode? Initial alcohol by volume of substrate? Number of plates in use? Pressure of steam? Desired proof of output?

Now available after an upgrade at the distillery is an Anton-Paar DMA35, bought new in 2012 for $2400.00: Gently used and always carefully handled, it is in excellent working condition and comes complete with the optional hard-shell carrying case, not the cardboard case.
