- Most customers choose an 8-gallon kettle for this unit. If you're looking at a 15-gallon, also consider the High Volume Gin Series, which features a larger column size.
- To heat this unit, either one band heater or one internal heating element is sufficient.
- For column packing, choose the ceramic raschig rings for distilling water or essential oils, and copper mesh for distilling alcohol.
- If you don't like the bung, choose one of the Solar Digital thermometers as your thermometer upgrade. This comes with an end cap with 1/2" coupling that the thermometer screws into at the top of the column, getting rid of the bung completely.
