For sale from 2014 onwards: iStripper 1000

Recommended Posts

We are currently developing an easy to run, all automated stripper, the iStripper 1000. The machine has a gross capacity of 1,000 liters (or 260 gallons) and is the perfect system if you want to get more out of your iStill 250.

How? The iStripper will strip 700 to 750 liters of 8% wash to around 220 to 230 liters of 25% strong low wines in one work day. And 220 to 230 liters of 25% strong low wines are just the perfect content to do a great strip run on, with your iStill 250. And that can be done in one work day as well.

Since both machines will be managed through our new to launch (few weeks from now!) tablet computer, they can be ran simultaneously without any hassle.

The iStripper is indirectly heated, through a water jacketed boiler. This will give you maximum flexibility: you can strip on the grain (or pulp) or decide to rather strip a beer. The iStripper can handle both.

We will be constructing the first iStripper next month. Market release is in January 2014. If you want to know more and pre-order to prevent waiting time, just send me an email and we'll schedule a call to discuss if this is the rig you need.

Regards, Edwin.

More info. The first units are on their way to the USA as we speak. We did change quite a few things, in the end, and prior to market launch. Size is up to 1,500 liters now. And it does not just strip, you can also make one go whiskey, brandy, rum, gin, and vodka. Very versatile. The attachable cleaning sections (maximum 3) help you raise the number of plates from anything like 1 to 10.

Because of versatility, we renamed the rig. It's the iStill One. The one rig you need to help take your craft distilling experience to a whole new level. For more reading, please see:

More on performance. In stripping mode, with the throttle down, the iStill One will give you over 70 liters of product per hour. At anything from 90%+ to 30%, depending on how many additional cleaning sections (for extra plates) you add. Heat up time is about an hour and a half to two, depending on batch size (1,000 - 1,300 liters). Actual stripping time is like another two hours.

When you run the iStill One to finish say an 8.5% wash into a whiskey in one go, it will produce over 30 liters per hour and enable you to make perfect cuts. You do one test run, where you dial in cut points and every time you run that same wash again, you get warnings when cut points arrive. Computer aided distilling? I guess it is. Heat-up time is like 2 hours, where the actual run time on a 1,000 liter batch is under 4 hours.

On a whiskey run, you can add the copper catalyst (all glass on the outside with copper oversized SPP on the inside) and maybe add one cleaning section. That will take your hearts cut to about 70%.

On a vodka run, you can add all cleaning sections and take hearts to 90%+ in one go.

An update. We will also be equiping the iStill One with our new oversized SPP. Well, on demand, that is. When you order the SPP packed cleaning sections on the iStill One, you will get more plates. Suited for vodka making, not for whiskey or brandy making. For that you need our standard ceramic column packing.

A bit more on cooling water usage as well. A 1,000 liter (260 gallon) run only asks for around 1,500 liters (390 gallon) of cooling water.

How long a period is the cooling required, assuming the input water at 50F?

MG, that's the water usage for a 7 hour run on a 1000 liter molasses ferment we took - in one go - to barrel ageing strength.

Dave, I am not sure my English is well enough to understand your question. The new design we took means the iStill Pump works best when "primed". So attached to our 2 inch drains (fermenters, iStill One, iStill Masher). Hope that makes sense. Anyhow, here's a link to a movie on how she runs: http://www.istill.eu/#!istill-tv/cq6j

And talking about the iStill Masher? Here's a link with more information on our 2000 liters (> 500 gallons) nett mashing rig. With computer aided mashing technology: http://wp.me/p3pXcR-na

Introduction price for orders up until November: EUR 24,995.-.
