We have a new innovation called ABV Control. It allows the craft distiller to distill any spirit to the exact ABV he wants. With a variance of 1% only. So now you can make rum or whiskey in one go, in one single distillation run.

For more reading, see: https://istillblog.com/2019/02/22/innov ... v-control/

Regards, Odin.

Here's another iStill 5000. This one we will test with a potstill column configuration. This beast produces 200 liters of spirits per hour.

Nice try Odin.
That's a nuclear power plant cooler.

We sold close to 100 iStill Mini product development stills in under 8 months. 1.5 gallons. Column for potstill and fractionating still capability (up to 96%) and with the extractor. It comes with agitator and power management and reflux management (manual) included. We just started building the next batch of 50.

Putting five more stills on transport today. Here is a few blog posts with the truck taking them to the crating company. The units go to the USA, to Australia, to France, and to Cyprus.

So how does that reflux capacitor work? Love the name by the way.
What are the bolts and chains for?
It doesn't seem to be under the column, is it like a bubble ball whose only job is passive reflux that is returned to the boiler?
Is this a joke?
