The alchemist distillation tower pure copper mesh has an excellent surface to volume ratio, it is even better than
3/16ths raschig rings. The alchemist distillation tower comes with four rolls of copper; the alchemist with the
extension comes with 12 rolls of copper. The reason copper has been used for distilling, is because it removes the
impurities from raw materials, etc wine, sugar mash, corn and so on.
The condenser is the heart of the still. It’s a double helix copper coil, ten inches in length, all vapors that
form during the boiling of the wash condenses against the cooling coils and turns into a liquid.
Reflux dividing head-
The Reflux dividing head collects all the liquid from the condenser. It also allows the liquid to either flow back
into the reflux column, depending on the control valve setting. By adjusting the reflux control valve, the dividing
head can pass some of the liquid back to the reflux column. We can achieve a double, triple, or multiple
distillation. Just under the reflux divider collection, is the digital thermometer. Its position will allow it to
read the temperature of the vapor just before it enters the reflux divider, and on its way to the condenser.
The temperature is crucial in telling us what distilling products have been produced and what percentage. Broadly
speaking, the product being produced can be catalogued as heads, hearts and tails.
Copper Reflux Distillation column
The reflux distillation column is the workhorse of the alchemist distillation tower. This is where the ratification
takes place. The vapor from the boiler passes thru the column, to the dividing head then on unto the condenser where
it condenses and turns the vapor into a liquid. This liquid then falls into the reflux divider.
When the control valve is fully closed this liquid falls back into the reflux column but not right down into the
boiler as the pure copper mesh restricts it from falling downwards.
The rising vapor from the boiler now heats this liquid again to its boiling point. It is evaporated again and gets
carried to the condenser. It carries away to the condenser. However every time the vapor condenses the alcohol
This condensing / heating/ evaporating cycle allows us to perform multiple distillations within one process. The
alchemist comes in two sizes/. One being a pot still and an added extension if needed for high proof alcohol
Why all copper for the stills?
You might have noticed the reflux column the condenser, product cooler and even the column packing are all
constructed from copper. The main reason is copper acts as a catalytic to reduce some unwanted compounds like
sulfur. This is the main reason copper is used in all big distilleries. Also the heat is distributed evenly and
retained. Copper has better properties than stainless steel. Does not leech nickle. Copper softens products.
The cleaning of copper-
The unwanted compounds like sulfur attaches to the pure copper mesh. You will see this as a black tarnish on the
copper mesh. To clean this, place one tablespoon of citric acid into one gallon of lukewarm water for 15 to twenty
minutes You will notice that the mesh comes back to its shiny state. Then to neutralize use baking soda. One
teaspoon to a gallon of lukewarm water. You can leave this overnight
