The Hillbilly Flute


The Hillbilly Flute Copper Distillery Column

No serious moonshine kit is complete without a copper still. The Hillbilly Flute is handmade using the highest quality copper components on the market. This design has been around for many years on the commercial level, but we scaled our version down to a hobby-sized still. Just like the commercial perforated plate distillation columns, the 4″ Hillbilly Flute has an astounding take off rate that produces a high alcohol content, full flavored distillate. Our Gen 2 is designed so you will never have to worry about your plates flooding. You will also be able to achieve a little faster take off rate.  Our new columns are made of all c122 copper which is food grade. The Gen 2 also has a newly designed final condenser. This will bring your distillate off much cooler at a faster rate.

Features of the Hillbilly Flute Copper Still

Like most large commercial stills, the Hillbilly Flute is an easy still to run and maintain. Features include:

  • 4″ copper column with four perforated plates
  • Shotgun dephlegmator (“The Rainmaker”)
  • Full irrigation plumbing to the dephlegmator
  • Condensate condenser (13″ shotgun condenser)
  • In-built parrot’s beak

The Hillbilly Flute Copper Still comes with:

  • Tri-Clamp
  • EDPM O-ring seal
  • Instructional DVD to teach you how to play the Hillbilly Flute
  • Sight glass tool – Peering through the site glasses, you can see the reflux in action

The Hillbilly Flute is made from only the best high-grade copper and LEAD FREE silver solder. If you plan to use the column with a boiler, just specify what size connection you require at check out.

    As soon as I laid eyes on the flute I knew I had to have one. These stills perform exactly as described. I would recommend the flute to anyone who wants to create a great quality product. Thanks for everything KS!

    This design is amazing! I can’t even believe how well this design works. I also can’t believe how easy it is to operate. I’ve been running my build every weekend since I received it! What a deal for the money, there is no other build on the market that competes with your design!

    My Flute finally arrived. After assembling it and looking at the quality I see why it takes so long to build one and why they are in so much demand. I haven’t ran it yet but will soon.

    Thanks so much

    Awesome! The fractional column works every bit as good as Mike said it would. The first time I fired it up (on a low wine of about 8 abv) the Hillbilly flute produced spirits @ 184 abv. Not to mention itÕs a real piece of art.
