Copper Proofing Beak
A proofing parrots beak gets its name from the shape of the mechanism, which resembles a bird with a large beak. The name may be funny, but this tool is for moonshiners who are serious about the ABV production of their spirits.
No single proofing parrots beak is the same when you shop at Hill Billy Stills. Each copper proofing beak is individually crafted, and each one is unique. Because each product is a little different, yours may not be exactly the same as the picture seen here. But rest assured that each one is made from high-quality copper. There is a 2 to 4 week build time on this item.
How to Measure Alcohol Content in Moonshine
Wondering what a copper proofing beak does? A proofing parrots beak holds an alcoholmeter while collecting and cooling the distilled alcohol as it comes out of the still. This allows the distiller to get a highly accurate reading of the ABV in real time as the spirits are coming out.
The product seen here is a standard size parrots beak for distilling and is built to fit alcoholmeters that are 5/8 inch in diameter. You must allow 1-2 weeks for delivery. These are made to order after the purchase is placed, but trust us when we say that it will definitely be worth the wait!
