Manual Potstill by iStill!

25 June 2020
Robust Flavors, Distilled Consistently Many distillers are interested in running their stills manually. If only that could be combined with a measure of supervision and help, to let them perform other jobs at the distillery, during the run ... And if only that manual potstill could be designed in such a way that the robust flavors they are after can be produced more consistently ... Guess what? That's exactly what the iStill Manual Series offers! Features & Benefits Dual Riser Design (DRD) The iStill Potstill's unique Dual Riser Design combines a wide lower riser with a more narrow upper riser. The wide lower riser guarantees a very stable vapor supply, while the narrow upper riser provides the higher vapor speeds needed for the full-bodied flavors associated with pot distillation. Insulation The insulation lowers energy losses and supports a speedier distillation process. The insulation on the wide lower riser prevents unwanted passive reflux, while stabilizing vapor speeds, supporting more control over the associated flavor profiles of the spirits you produce. iStill Bluetooth Thermometer The iStill Manual Potstill comes equipped with the iStill Bluetooth Thermometer. This thermometer measures the temperature inside the riser and signals it via Bluetooth to the Still Control App. The battery life is an expected 5 years. Still Control App (SCA) The Still Control App is an app all iStill Manual Potstill owners can download for free. SCA allows the distiller to fill in his cut points for heads, hearts, tails, and end of run. The app helps monitor the run and informs the operator when he needs to cut, by tracking the temperature values provided by the iStill Bluetooth thermometer. This makes it easier for the distiller to perform other tasks around his or her distillery, and is assures both quality cuts and spirit reproducibility. Copper Foam Technology (CFT) In case imperfect fermentations result in higher than wished for sulfur counts, copper - as a catalyst - can clean up the contamination. But a copper column or riser would add two hours to your daily cleaning protocols and copper facilitates the formation of ethyl carbamate (a carcinogenic). That's why we developed CFT. All iStills come equipped with a CFT waffle that can be inserted low in the riser and that takes care of any sulfur contamination without any of the downsides of a completely copper column or riser. Upgradable The iStill Manual Series uses the base iStill boiler. This means that the owner can always upgrade his manual still to an automated version.

Psst, free bonus ...
