    complete PS2 still. Simple to set up. Much easier to operate and control. 178 proof on first batch. HAPPY!

    As advertised. Showed up quickly, very well packed and protected. Missing 1 part. Called and they sent replacement quickly as well. Great quality, heavy duty construction. Not cheep as I feared. I’ll order again if I need additional parts.

    Pro series II still. The still itself is great, would have liked a 3" colum. but stuck with 2"

    Perfect. I have the 8 gallon kettle with the 1500W band heater. So far I've run it in reflux mode to make vodka. This is a well tuned system that settles into its reflux mode nicely. I use a simple sugar wash and do a stripping run of it in pot still mode first. I think it's worth the effort. I'm very particular with the vodka I drink and this still yielded a product as good as anything I've bought. I did run it through a Brita water filter and it added the finishing touch. Definitely will look into a more advanced filtering system in the future. All construction is A+ and help over a phone is professional and generous. I looked at a lot of brands and types and am very glad I settled on this one. Buy Rick's book too, it's a good one.

    Almost 1 Year of use. Makes a great neutral at 95% in reflux.
    Pot Mode delivers great whiskey, bourbon, rum & rye.
    Solid construction. Eight gallons is just the right weight for lifting and emptying, too.
    100% Satisfaction!

    cooling. In Upstate NY, I need only a trickle of tap water (cheap here) to do a controlled condense winter and summer. I use a standard refrigerator ice maker tube with the valve cracked less than a quarter turn for a coolant. Ice and pump not needed.

    Just using as a pot still so far. Craftsmanship on this still is fantastic. Everything is rock solid. I've run 2 batches so far, both times as a pot still, because I'm using corn, and want some of the corn flavor. Both times I got up to 160 proof. This beast is perfect for the novice distiller, because everything runs so smooth, you can focus on your temps, drips and cuts. Loving it. Brewhaus really takes care of you, as a customer.

    Just be careful when ordering. So the still itself is nice. All the welds are perfect. However, I initially ordered the pot with 1 fitting. Shortly thereafter, I traded 6 emails with Rick, during which he and I agreed on a placement for a second fitting, and he said there was no problem accommodating, since the welder hadn't started. When I received my still, 1 fitting. Now no response. Thanks a lot.
