This Alembic Pot Still is made up of the T500 Boiler (not included) with a Pot Still Alembic Dome Top and Pot Still Condenser. These additions transform the T500 into the Alembic Pot Still. Instead of stripping flavours to give clean spirit like the T500, this pot still retains and enhances flavours. This can be used when distilling washes that contain flavours that the user wishes to collect. For example wine for making brandy, malt mashes for making whiskeys or bourbons, molasses mashes for making rum etc. The dome (51079) and condenser (51078) for this pot still are sold separately. The Pot Still Alembic Condenser can be used on its own with the T500 Boiler or with the Pot Still Alembic Dome Top. We recommend using both together for better results.
This alembic copper domed top fits on to your Still Spirits T500 Boiler. This can be used in place of the boiler’s stainless steel lid. The large copper surface area of the alembic top acts as a catalyst with the vapour in the still and helps enhance and concentrate the flavours and aromas as well as remove unwanted sulphur compounds. This produces a smoother, richer, sweeter tasting spirit.
