The Essential Extractor Pro Series II Column with Connector is a reflux distillation column incorporating our Pro Series cooling system and a 2-piece column for the greatest versatility. By placing the cooling lines near the top of the distillation column, reflux is created where it is intended- at the top of the tower. This allows for the most effective use of the column filling by causing the refluxed liquid to flow down through it, resulting in a cleaner distillate. Crossing the cooling lines instead of leaving them parallel results in a much more efficient cooling system, requiring less cooling water while maintaining effectiveness. And, by having the cooling system in direct contact with the rising vapour you achieve a far more efficient and effective cooling than systems that surround a column with a cooling water jacket. The slow heat transfer rate through the thick column wall is much less efficient, and concentrates all of the cooling ability around the outside of the column. The result of jacketed columns is liquid channeling down the walls of the column, while not cooling the majority of the vapour as it is not in contact with the column wall. While such a system may operate faster, it is at the expense of quality.
The two piece column - another Brewhaus innovation - allows the top portion of the column to attach directly to the kettle, giving you a true Pot Distillation column, without having to purchase another column separately.
The Pro Series II uses a full-length column that is more than 3' long, for true reflux operation. This results in a cleaner, more pure distillate.

Options & Upgrades
There are many options for you to select when ordering a Brewhaus distiller, making it possible to almost completely customize your unit. A description of those options is below.
Copper mesh is our most popular column packing as copper can neutralize sulfur compounds formed during fermentation as the vapour flows through it. If kept clean, copper column packing can last a very long time.
Ceramic Raschig Rings
Ceramic Raschig Rings offer the greatest combination of surface area and void space (air space), resulting in slightly higher proof from most reflux distillations. They are much easier to keep clean than copper mesh, and can last almost forever.
This is a standard grade, liquid filled thermometer. It reads in both Fahrenheit (0oF - 230oF) and Celsius (-10oC - 110oC).
This is a standard grade digital thermometer with a swivel head. It reads in both Fahrenheit (-58oF - 572oF) and Celsius (-50oC - 300oC).
Solar Digital Thermometer
The Solar Digital Thermometer is a high-grade meter with a high degree of accuracy (+/-1%). It has a stainless steel body and probe, with a swivel heat and built-in 1/2" NPT coupling. The Solar Digital Thermometer runs on solar power with a battery backup. The Fahrenheit version has a range of -50oF - 320oF, and the Celsius version has a range of -50oC - 160oC.
The Solar Digital Thermometer upgrade includes the Solar Digital Thermometer, Tri-Clamp End Cap with 1/2" NPT coupling, Tri-Clamp, Gasket, and the addition of a Tri-Clamp ferrule to the top of the distiller column.
Stainless Steel Parrot
Stainless Steel Parrot
The Stainless Steel Parrot enables you to take real-time proof readings when you distill alcohol by connecting the parrot to the output from your distiller.
