Hooloo RST65 Distiller
65 Liters 17.2 Gallon Rocket Stainless Steel Still with C10000 Red Copper Rocket and 3” Red Copper Bubble Plate Column .
This 65 Liters still is great for Bourbon, single malt Whiskey, Brandy, Grappa, Rum, Baijiu and many others. It will distill below 170 proof with the 4 plate bubble plate column and up to 190 proof with the optional 3"x4' Vodka Column Extension added .This product is affordable, and one of the highlights is that it is equipped with a rocket cap.
Here are some advantages of using a rocket lid in distillation:
Enhanced Vapor Reflux: The rocket lid acts as a reflux condenser at the top of the column, allowing vapor to condense and fall back into the column. This reflux increases the contact time between vapor and liquid, promoting better separation of alcohol and impurities. As a result, the distillate that emerges is of higher purity and smoother flavor.
Improved Fractionation: Fractionation is the process of separating different components based on their boiling points. The rocket lid aids in fractionation by providing additional surfaces for vapor condensation and re-vaporization. This helps separate compounds with similar boiling points more effectively, contributing to a cleaner and more distinct flavor profile in the final product.
Temperature Regulation: Rocket lid can help regulate the temperature inside the column. By condensing vapor and allowing it to fall back, they help control the temperature gradient along the column's height. This is particularly valuable when aiming for specific cuts during distillation to capture desirable flavors while minimizing undesirable compounds.
Higher Proof Output: The rocket lid, by facilitating reflux and multiple vaporization-condensation cycles, enables a more thorough separation of alcohol from other components. This results in higher-proof distillate as it captures and concentrates the alcohol content, allowing distillers to achieve their desired alcohol concentration with greater efficiency.
Enhanced Aroma and Flavor: The extended contact between vapor and liquid enabled by the rocket lid contributes to the retention of delicate and volatile aroma compounds. This translates into a more aromatic and flavorful distillate that better captures the essence of the raw materials used in the distillation process.
Versatility: Rocket lid are versatile components that can be adjusted and customized to suit different distillation goals. By fine-tuning the reflux ratio, distillers can achieve a wide range of products with varying characteristics, from high-proof spirits to more nuanced and flavorful distillates.
Reduction of Harshness: The increased reflux provided by the rocket lid helps to remove harsh or unwanted compounds from the distillate. This results in a smoother and more palatable final product that is enjoyable to consume on its own or in cocktails.
This Still has the beautiful 3" Diameter Copper Bubble Plate Column option with four 4" diameter sight glasses, Gatling Gun (Tube & Shell) Dephlagmator on top of the column and a 2" Gatling Gun (Tube & Shell) Condenser on the right side of the column. The column can be ran in Pot Still Mode to make Whiskey and Moonshine or it can be ran in Reflux Mode to make high proof light Whiskey or Rum. The optional Vodka Column Extension Can be added to make Vodka.
