COLUMN: If you're serious about moonshine then step-up to the copper sectional 4-plate 4" Hybrid Flute Moonshine Still. We call it the Hybrid because the column and bubble plates are all solid copper and the rest, reflux condenser, return bend, secondary condenser, and parrot are made from strong, easy to maintain stainless steel. We offer this column as a stand-alone, no boiler or controls for guys and gals that want to pick additional components from our web-site as needed. The Hi Proof Product flute is a scaled down version of common commercial distillation columns. This high-output reflux still serves as a great moonshine still and can even make high grade ethanol for fuel.
This is such a heavy-duty Flute that we don’t recommend mating it with with any boiler less than a 26-gallon capacity. This unit is about 75% faster than our other columns because this Flute can handle a ton of vapor!
The whole column comes apart for easy cleaning. Each copper bubble plate is in its own copper section so when you take the clamps off, your flute column breaks down into several copper body sections that each contain a clamp, gasket, copper bubble plate, and BIG viewing window. Plus, because the column is 4” in diameter, you can fit your whole hand inside each section for deep cleaning instead of trying to maneuver a bottle brush up a column that’s longer than your arm like the less expensive to make one piece columns offered elsewhere. Easily unscrew the holding screws from the copper bubble plates and clean them as well with our special copper cleaner powder listed in our accessories section that's basically dip, soak, rinse, you're done!
Instead of needing to pack your column with copper mesh or raschig rings, you have the sought after copper bubble plate, which is easy to clean and will last a lifetime. Because it’s copper, you still have your copper reactivity that eliminates sulpher tastes and odors. Plus the fact that the column has BIG viewing windows so you can actually see the bubble stuff happening in real time which is just plain kewl!
Our flute column comes with a built-in parrot that makes draining the heads and inline testing a breeze. There’s a valve at the bottom of the parrot so you can drain off those nasty heads, close the valve, then let it start going through the parrot, and you’re onto your run. No waiting until the parrot is full. We also put the thermometer at the top of the column where it’s catching the vapor that will be collected to ensure accurate column thermometer readings. As a bonus we're throwing in a set of four machined brass quick connectors that fit both condensers. Using them will make attaching and disconnecting your hose kit a snap.
Guys and gals don't get caught up in the hype about less expensive to make one-piece columns. There's absolutely no need to sacrifice and limit your boundaries, don't settle for less than you paid for. With our modular column you are capable of so much more. You can change the number of bubble plate sections to optimize your flute for whatever you’re distilling in your moonshine still. If you want to do a pot distillation you can have one or two sections and remove the plates, shutting off water to the reflux condenser. If you want to do a high purity distillation, you might do six body sections with plates. If you want to do more, you can! plus we also now offer an optional gin basket, (see our component section) so you’ll just add that in. No need to buy an entire gin series moonshine still if you want to make gin. Just purchase one extra piece for the flute and you're good-to-go! That’s the beauty of our flute column being a modular unit. You can add and take away pieces to suit your needs for each individual run. Nothing else even comes close in versatility, kind like having your cake and being able to eat it too.
