Why We Prefer Stainless Steel Instead of Copper Moonshine Stills
When you think of distilling, you probably picture the old-time copper moonshine stills. If you're distilling alcohol, then you have some nasty sulfur compounds in your was that formed during fermentation. You'll want copper to help neutralize those sulfur compounds and improve your final product's taste and scent, but you don't need a lot of copper in order to get the benefit. Copper mesh, copper scrubbers, or copper rings in a stainless steel column will give you the same results.
There are other benefits to copper, too. Copper is better at conducting heat than stainless steel, which can save time. Copper is also easier to build with because it's a much softer metal than stainless steel. A copper moonshine still is definitely a thing of beauty!
As pretty as it is, there are some reasons why you an all-copper still may not be for you. Copper is very difficult to clean. If you're not good about cleaning your still, you'll taste it in your product--and it's not good. Copper is also more expensive than and not as versatile as stainless steel. You can distill essential oils in a stainless column by removing the copper column packing, but you can't distill essential oils in a copper moonshine still.
We Make Our Own Turbo Yeast, Too
Brewhaus America is more than just distillation equipment! We are the sole American importer for The Original Prestige turbo yeast and alcohol essence flavors from Sweden. We also make High Spirits turbo yeast and essences right here in our Texas warehouse. We do not private label our turbo yeast or distillers yeast.
Other companies use private labeled turbo yeast, which means that they pay to (legally) put their label on another brand's yeast and resell it as their own. That's fine, but it's not what we do. High Spirits turbo yeast is made in-house from Rick's unique recipes. High Spirits turbo yeast is exclusive to Brewhaus and stores who buy from us.
What sets High Spirits turbo yeast apart from other yeasts is that High Spirits does not contain urea. In fermentation, urea helps produce ethyl carbamate, which has been found to cause cancer. It has even been banned in beverage alcohol production in some countries. If the label doesn't specifically say that there's no urea in it, then your yeast might contain urea.

Can I Legally Buy a Still?
In the United States, people of legal drinking age can make their own wine or beer at home legally. But producing distilled spirits at home is still illegal according to Federal law. There are distilling permits you can apply for online on the Alcohol &Tobacco Tax & Trade Bureau's website. You can also learn more on the TTB's website in their Distilled Spirits FAQs.
It's up to our customers to use their equipment in accordance with their local laws. Brewhaus America is not liable for illegal moonshine distillation or other illegal use. Moonshine distilling is illegal in certain countries, and our stills and yeast are intended for legal home distilling use. We do not wish to promote illegal use of your moonshine still.
