Can I make this fit a sanke keg if I got a tri-clover flange. What is the pipe thread?
Tim Spangler on Jan 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You can attach this to the top of a sanke keg by using a 2" triclamp gasket. The bulkhead is sized to fit a 47mm hole.
What size are the Pipe threads (MNPT)???
Robert Schaffeld on Jan 26, 2022
BEST ANSWER: I removed mine and replaced with 1/4” compression to npt and 1/4 hose barbs.
Can I use quick disconnects like the ones I use on my cornies?
Dillon Cross on Mar 5, 2021
BEST ANSWER: You have to buy the connection kit to use the ones that come attached on the unit. It is frustrating if they are out of stock since they are sold separately. The fittings are specialized and no manufacturer stamp to find the matching part. No the ball lock quick disconnects like on a corny keg DO NOT FIT. Standard quick disconnects for air lines or pressure washers DID NOT FIT EITHER. I looked all over and could not find a quick disconnect that would fit with what came on the unit. So I cut it off and attached entirely new quick disconnects. Would be better if these just came with a hose barb. Or if the connection kit was included with the still top. The plastic quick disconnects look cheap and I hear they leak so might be best to just plan on attaching higher quality fittings.

Great product
Ran my first batch with this to work out the kinks. Worked great with the Digiboil (35L), not a sponsor. My old setup would take about 3-4 hours on the stove pot still. This setup took 2.5 hours start to finish. Finished whiskey was just at 40% with a mash at 14%, a little low. Like I said great product.

The Digiboil on old pot still, it’s difficult to see and adjust the temperature.
Digiboil temp 206 at 1000W has best distillation flow.
H2O temp around 44*
30 lids of ice

Very easy to use!
Really easy to use, just plug and play. I used two hours or so, incl heating up the Brewzilla, to get 4,6 liters of 60% liquor. But used a lot tap water for cooling.

Works, but I have questions!!
Well, it honestly works fine overall, BUT there is a thick residue on all the copper after we use it. I’m honestly not sure after spending hours and hours on this if it’s even safe to drink.
First try.

Response from MoreFlavor
What color is the residue on the copper and is it on the inside or both the inside and the outside? If the residue is blue then it comes from sulphur compounds from the wash reacting with the copper. Usually this binds pretty well to the copper and won't taint your spirit. The other very common residue comes from foaming inside the kettle, just like a hot break when you boil beer, rice, or pasta. Some more description of the symptoms could help us give some more specific advice.

If you have a blue residue, the best way to get rid of it is to wash the copper in a solution of hot water and citric acid. The blue stuff is a copper sulfate salt that will dissolve easily in hot water and the citric acid will make your copper shiny and red again.

Well built
Nice still, but customer support will not answer my questions. There are small openings around the cooling coils that could allow alcohol vapor to escape if cooling is insufficient. This is on an electric heater, but still a flammable gas potential safety concern.

Leaker, can’t run it due to the leaks. Nothing but money and headaches.
Been thought 4 different disconnects all of which leaked. Bought hoses to clamp over the quick disconnect. Now it’s leaking at the fittings. Extremely disappointed in the product and support. I’ve had the reflux and have had no issues but this pot still top is nowhere near the craftsmanship of that. If do buy one prepare for the disconnects to leak which is a well known problem and also the connectors to leak.
