For the serious hobbyist

This system is a combination of several items:

  • A Spirit Beginners Kit which includes everything you need to ferment your basic spirit in 25 litre batches plus the carbon filtering equipment for use after distilling. It also includes hydrometers for testing & adjusting your alcohol strength.
  • A 25 litre stainless steel boiler
  • A Super-reflux condenser (refer to the information sheet “How stills work”)

NOTE: The super-reflux still is a water cooled unit that requires a low volume of running water while it is operating. We have water recycling systems for stills if required.

To explain the benefits of this system, we need to tell you more about yeasts.

Still Spirits make four additional yeasts apart from the Triple Distilled yeast that is used in the Air Still system. These yeasts are made for specific purposes:

  • Power yeast is formulated to produce a wash up to 20% alcohol. This enables you to make a greater volume of spirit in each batch. The alcohol produced is rated as good.
  • Express yeast is formulated to work incredibly fast. This enables you to make a batch of alcohol in just over 24 hours. Alcohol quality is rated as very good.
  • Heat Wave yeast is formulated to work in hot weather conditions that would kill other yeasts. It produces excellent quality alcohol.
  • Classic yeast is formulated to work very reliably in a variety of conditions. It is the best “all rounder” making excellent quality alcohol.

You will notice that although the quality of alcohol produced by these yeasts ranges from good to excellent, none are rated as "outstanding" as is Triple Distilled yeast. This is because each yeast is formulated for a specific purpose & to do this, the quality may be affected.

This means that the alcohol could be improved if put through a still that removed impurities & the Still Spirits Super Reflux still does just that. It is a sophisticated design that will process a wider variety of washes producing an enhanced level of quality. This means that you can use all the Still Spirits Turbo yeast types to suit your own needs. Your homebrew specialist can help you choose the right yeast for your situation.
