  3. Used Iberian Coppers pot still for saleHand-hammered in PortugalApproximately 4 years old - good conditionSet up for direct-fire heating, but you could add a steam coil pretty easily.Will include the still base and burner for free.Must pick up in Boulder, CO.
  4. Looking for a good home for a dependable still. I'm looking to get is sold as quickly as possible. I need to get it off my friend's floor so he can install his own equipment. He's been nice enough to store it for me! I had been saving it in case I got back into the industry, but I've decided to stick with my day job! Still Description: The still is a Series 2 Bain Marie Style Artisan Still from Artisan Still Design. It originally cost $85K new. It was used primarily as a stripping and finishing still to make whiskey, gin, and even small batch vodka. 150 GL double jacketed copper pot with 4 inch drain, pressure gauge, thermometers, etc. Can be run with steam or as a double boiler using 6 heating elements (elements not included). It's set up for either Steam or as a double boiler. I ran it with oil in the jacket as a double boiler and used heating elements to run it. I didn't have a boiler, so I used the electric setup. I do not have controller...these can be built for minimal expense or you can contact Sherman Owens for a control box if you need. If you decide to run it with steam, you wouldn't need a controller. Other Items: 1/2 Copper (Top) and 1/2 SS kettle (bottom). 4 plate copper column with copper bypass, ports for thermometers on each plate. Plates are bubble caps. Stainless steel dephleg with thermometer port. Stainless steel condenser with thermometer port. Stainless steel parrot. SS Jackets, piping, etc. 2 hp Agitator with motor, housing, and mixing shaft. CIP ports for pot and column. Has all seals, valves, thermometers, pressure gauge, pipes, tri-clamp fittings, tri-clamp seals, etc. Just needs to be put together. I'm asking for $25K OBO plus shipping and it would ship out of Prosser, Washington. A Friend is storing it for me at his distillery there. He'd box it up and get it shipped to you, if you decided to buy it. If interested in the still, please IM me. I am looking for a cash buyer and will not lease or use a payment plan. I will entertain lower offers. Thank you!

  6. looking to find a source for 6 inch copper dwv im in washington state id like to get 10 to 20 feet. but id settle for a few feet if i could find it by the foot for under 115 bucks any suggestions?
  7. Just bought my first column! Very exciting, but it's used so it needs a good cleaning as it has quite a bit of build up inside. What's the best way to clean/refurb? Just the usual rinse/caustic/rinse/acid/rinse? I've seen some people recommend scrubbing with steel wool - bad/good idea?

  13. Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has used this product before: http://pro.everbritecoatings.com/portfolio/shelter-point-distillery/ (aside from shelter point obviously) As Im sure you can all relate to, polishing the still and keeping it nice and new penny shiny is a pain in the butt. I was just looking into any high heat coatings that might work for helping to keep the copper looking nice and came across this stuff. I spoke with tech services, and they said they did even make an ethanol resistant version of it, to protect against drips and what not. We currently use a citric acid wash to clean (or left over wine), and then we polish with a metal polish, but after a week of operations the luster wears off and its back to old penny look. Thoughts?

  15. Double Diamond 220 gallon all copper still for sale. Same exact still here: http://www.coppermoonshinestills.com/id51.html Link to a video of our still in operation. https://www.facebook.com/knoxwhiskeyworks/videos/1054489924595985/ Only used about 2 months, maybe 40 washes before we upgraded to our 300 gallon still. Internal coil is 3/4"-60 foot length and gave us a heat up time of about an hour. Easy to take neck off and clean out. The waiting list on this still is about one year. Asking $12,000 Located in Knoxville, TN.
  16. Looking to buy used equipment for a small start up. (not from China) 55 to 100 Gallon copper pot still to make Vodka. 55 Gallon still to make Gin. 3 fully jacketed ferment/mash tanks. 1 Two roller grain mill.
  17. Up for grabs to the first taker is a complete start up distillery. I have upgraded my stills and fermentation tanks to larger ones, so my original equipment must go. Two 70 gallon stills. Both with copper heads and stainless boilers. Both are electric heat to an oil jacket, so no direct heating elements into the wash. One is a pot/stripping still and the other is a 6 column still with gin basket and deflag. They both work perfectly and have produced amazing, award winning product for 3 years. Because of how great they work, our demand outgrew their production capability, which is why I built bigger equipment and must sell this startup equipment. I also have quantity 10, fermentation tanks. Each are 55 gallon stainless steel tanks with stainless lids. All the heating elements, heating controls, are included (there are 2 for each still) and only require a 220volt plug in for each (4 total plugs). Hoses and a OSHA safe rise platform to operate the equipment are all included as well. These were custom built with a lot of LOVE. Asking $25k for everything. UPDATE 10/30/15 - Price reduced to $15k to make room for new equipment. First come, first serve. Email: Sean(at)state-38.com for photos or questions. Serious inquiries only. I will remove this post when the equipment has sold. Buyer assumes responsibility for shipping, though I will load onto a truck for buyer.

  21. I need help on calculating the surface area required for copper internal heating pipes in a 3000ltr / 800 gallon wash still design I'm working on. The pot size will be <>2000mm/1200mm - 79"/47". I'm thinking circulating thermal oil instead of steam as the easiest option for heating the still. My understanding is thermal oil runs at about 300C / 572F, with the oil being pumped through an open system (zero pressure) via a header tank. The heating side will be gas fired. Agitation will be part of the design equation, any thoughts welcome.
  22. I just wanted to take this opportunity to show you a little of what we can do here at HBS Copper (Hillbilly stills). We can do any custom work you would like. We also offer steam coil Still for larger systems. Please if you have any unique ideas let us make them happen for you. We have Great onsite welders and all of our copper is heavy gauge tig welded. Please see this video. It may give you better Idea of what we can do. I made in the USA.

  24. So, the local health department visited. They are concerned about our use of copper mugs for Moscow Mules. Basically they state that because the drink has a pH of <6 we shouldn't be using copper. But, if the level of copper is below 1.3mg per liter (the limit the EPA has set for water) they think we will be fine. So, now I need to have one of our Moscow Mules tested by a lab. I'll update this as soon as we have new info...
  25. So, basically a few welds on the thumper to condenser arm, and then it's time to give it a polish. Thanks for all your advice and support on here, everyone. Here it is the first time the boiler shook hands with the thumper. As a point of reference, I'm 6'3".
