The Essential Extractor Pot Distiller is a complete stainless steel pot distillation unit for use in the traditional (pot) distillation mode. As with the entire Essential Extractor series, the Essential Extractor Pot Distiller is made from only the finest quality stainless steel dairy tubing and custom kettle parts.
Intended for use as a moonshine still or for distilling essential oils, Brewhaus’ Complete Essential Extractor Pot Distiller features solid stainless steel construction. We do not use utility pails or dairy milk cans for our kettles, which are not intended for welding or heating.

- Your choice of thermometer
- To heat this unit, either one band heater or one internal heating element is sufficient.
- Although an internal heater is the most efficient heat source, it also increases your risk of scorching when using grains.
- If distilling alcohol, you’ll need to insert a loosely-rolled strip of copper mesh in the column for the vapor to pass through. Roll it up tightly enough for it to stay in the column without dropping out, but not so tightly that it completely plugs the column.
- 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.
Does not come with a burner or tubing. Please note that distilling alcoholic beverages is illegal at the federal level and so this still should be used for non-alcoholic beverages only. Also, distilling should always be done outside for safety reasons.
