Product Details

The column for our High Capacity unit is the very same that we supply to small-scale distilleries and for use as a laboratory unit in large distilleries.  No other increased-size column available to the home user has this background!


Our 3" High Capacity Pro Series II unit uses a larger column than our standard Pro Series II unit, with increased cooling capability and an extended condenser to ensure efficient operation with the increased distillate volume.  The High Capacity unit is capable of distilling at more than twice the speed of standard 2" distillation units while maintaining the highest possible purity!


Because of the size of this unit, more input heat is required (minimum of 1500W or use of gas heat recommended).


Just as with our standard Pro Series II system, the Essential Extractor Pro Series II High Capacity is a reflux distillation unit 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.

Solid Stainless Steel construction, using only dairy-quality beverage tubing and high-grade custom kettle components. We do not use utility pails or dairy milk cans for our kettles, which are not intended for welding or heating

Complete system includes:


  • Pro Series II High Capacity Column with Condenser and Tri-Clamp connector
  • 30qt. (7.5 gallon) High Grade Stainless Steel Kettle with Handles
  • Submersible Water pump
  • Hose Pack Included (Includes necessary hoses plus chemical tolerant distillate hose, E-Z Clamps, Brass Hose Fitting, Bung, and Laboratory Thermometer, column filling)

Options & Upgrades

There are many options for you to select when ordering a distiller a Brewhaus distiller, making it possible to almost completely customize your unit.  A description of those options is below.








Kettle Selection
All Brewhaus kettles include an aluminum diffuser plate.  This helps diffuse the heat to avoid 'hot spots' and scorching, and also protects the bottom of the kettle from damage due to excessive heat.


8 Gallon Standard Kettle



8 Gallon Standard Kettle
The standard kettle is the lowest cost option, and works well for most people.  However, it can be more difficult to clean, with the only access being through the ferrule in the top of the kettle.  The standard kettle will work on conventional heat sources and induction heat sources.



8 Gallon Premium Kettle

8 Gallon Premium Kettle
This is the most popular kettle option.  It is made with heavier-gauge metal than the standard kettle, and has a removable lid to give full access to the kettle for easy cleaning.  The Sure SealTM lid gives a vapour-tight seal, and the wide base and low height make this kettle more stable than most other kettle designs.  A higher grade of stainless steel makes the premium kettle extremely corrosion resistant, however, the use of such a high grade of stainless steel makes this kettle unusable on induction heat.



15 Gallon Premium Kettle


15 Gallon Induction Kettle
The 15 gallon premium kettle is made using the same moulds and grade of stainless steel as the 8 gallon premium kettle.  The 15 gallon kettle is approximately 10" taller than the 8 gallon kettle, nearly doubling the total volume.









Premium Kettle



1" NPT Couplings
NPT Couplings can be added to your premium kettle to allow you the option of using internal heating elements to heat your distiller.  Because of the lighter-gauge material, couplings cannot be added to our standard kettles.




1" NPT Plugs
NPT plugs can be used to seal NPT couplings when they are not in use.











Column Packing

Copper Mesh



Copper Mesh
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- 1/2L


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.

















Thermometer- Laboratory Grade



Laboratory Thermometer
This is a standard grade, liquid filled thermometer.  It reads in both Fahrenheit (0oF - 230oF) and Celsius (-10oC - 110oC).



Digital Thermometer


Digital Thermometer
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 Chain

Stainless Steel Chain


Stainless Steel Chain
If you are selecting the standard kettle then the stainless steel chain can be very useful for cleaning the kettle if anything gets scorched or dried onto the inside of the kettle.  Simply drop the chain into the kettle, add water, and 'swish' it around.  The chain will act as a pot scrubber, but will not introduce iron to the surface of the kettle.





Stainless Steel Parrot

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.
