    The spout from the boiler needs to be a standard valve that mates to a hose fitting.

    This thing works like a charm. I had no issues with set up, quality, fit, or finish. Assembled just like the video said, and I was up and running very quickly. The only thing I would do is upgrade to the 26 gallon boiler if I had the room. I’ve been distilling essential oils and water very easily. Once you get a feel for the controls, you can re-produce the same output time and again.

    This flute is more than a tool it is a work of art and sits very nicely as a display piece and a work of art.

    Great piece of solid, well built equipment with a little “hand-made” character. I would recommend this to anyone with confidence. Only complaint is that it doesn’t come with a second thermometer+adapter for the pot so order one.

    When purchasing this item it should include an extra thermometer. You shouldnt have to order it separately. Other than that its very well made and excellent quality. Well packaged and arrived on time as told. Brittany was a huge help and looked after my order and helped me with shipping. Thank-you very much for everything

    Best Book I have read in a while, a LONG while!! Last week I popped into the lriarby to check out a book to take with me on a business trip to Dallas. I was looking for something different, something to keep me awake on the flight, & something to make me NOT regret my choice since I was only bringing one book. Boy did I find it. This book was excellent, met all my criteria plus more. I was so sad to see it end but it ended perfect, complete with tears! If it ends with me in tears it is aces in my book THANK YOU JOE HILL!!!

    As previously mentioned really wish it came with the extra thermometer. But aside from that the product is the best on the market. This is my third still, I’ve brought from other companies and with I would’ve found these guys first. They did make a small mistake on my order but once informed corrected the issue immediately. Customer service is second to none.

    This is a fantastic test still for us. We are a 9yo production distillery and use this 13g H.S. w/ pre-condenser for R and D. Extremely well crafted, a true show piece. Have been running various washes through it and am very impressed with the output control. Having so much fun!! Cheers to an awesome product at a fantastic price. Highly recommended.
