Complete Still Towers

Pot Stills

A pot still simply condenses the alcohol vapors that come off the boiling mash. This will result in an alcohol at about 40-60% purity, with plenty of flavor in it. If this distillate were put through the pot distiller again, it would increase in purity to around 70-85% purity, and lose a bit of its flavor.

Reflux Stills

A reflux still does multiple distillations in one single run, by having packing in the tower allowing vapor to condense and drop back down through the packing. This "reflux" of liquid helps clean the rising vapor and increase the % purity. The taller the packed column, and the more reflux liquid, the purer the product will be. The advantage of doing this is that it will result in a clean  

   WARNING: Distilling alcohol at home, also known, as moonshine making is illegal in many countries. But you can use these distillers for many other uses. Like water, vinegars, essential oils, and even engine fuel. It is the responsibility of the user to abide by the laws of your country. R&W Distilling strongly discourages any unlawful use, and is not responsible for any damage or injury caused by misuse or unlawful use.

Under Federal rules administered by TTB, it depends on how you use the still. You may not produce alcohol with these stills unless you qualify as a distilled spirits plant.  However, owning a small still and using it for other purposes is allowed. You should also check with your State and local authorities - their rules may differ.
