The flute easily attaches to the boiler with an included tri-clamp. With the distillation speed of the Hillbilly flute this is the ideal size boiler for this distillation column. The Hillbilly flute is a plated column and a scaled down version of more common commercial distillation columns. The Turn Key Distillery is one of our more advanced moonshine stills and comes with a HS5500 phase angle electric controller and element kit. The heating element operates on 220 volts and will heat a 20 gallon wash in 40 minutes. With this controller you can precisely control your run and exactly replicate your results the next time you run. You can make some of the best moonshine or high grade ethanol for fuel with this kit. With the proper permits this moonshine still can make the product of your choice. Whether you’re doing a single run whiskey and rum or a double run for vodka this still will do the job. Why attempt to build a moonshine still yourself when you can purchase your very own professional grade moonshine still from Hillbilly Stills that functions as well as it looks?

    The device is truly “magic.” I can sit and watch it work for hours. I’ve had it for about two weeks and distilled about five gallons. I made the mistake of not cleaning my wash well enough before distilling it, which cost me a heating element and the batch.

    The flute is great.

    My turn key recently arrived and I couldn’t be happier. It was a long 8 or so week wait but it was definitely worth it. The craftsmanship that went into it is phenomenal. A copper mash pot would really bring it together, so I’ll be keeping my eye out for one of those!

    I recieved my product on time! And the first thing that caught my eye was how well it was packaged.
    I went threw the packages like a kid at Christmas time. I put the Distilling Plant together with no trouble, everything was there, no damage . I built a table in order to get buckets under the pot and also to mount my electric controller.
    Made my first brew WOW!!! Gotta re learn my cuts, and fine tune my adjustments…(Gotta learn your equipment,) I hit 85% on my maddin voyage.
    Took a little time to figure out the combination of the valves and heat, the video really gets you in the ball park.
    Very Easy to operate, it almost runs itself.
    Don’t use small catch jars, you wont be able to keep up changing them. This product can run very fast, it’s all up to you.
    I have highley recomended your product to several fellow brewers.
    I have been looking at add ons. I’m gona spend some time fine tunning. Getting a gin basket in the future.
    Thank Y’all
    This was really worth the wait

    Built to last, designed to succeed, and engineered to do the job correctly with flexibility for customization. This entire package is awesome and I couldn’t be more proud to own and use this product. I’ll be operating this setup almost 24 hours a day for many different purposes; and I still have not found a reason where the product can’t fit my specific process, and perform fantastically!

    Everything fit together well. The quality of the workmanship and design is evident in the type of copper used and how it’s put together. Lots of versatility in the design. Mike is quick to respond to inquiries and is genuinely happy to help.

    Great concept idea, how ever there is room for improvement.
    1- The soldering is very rough in a lot of areas and should have been cleaned up.
    2- The temperature gauge is not the brand that was advertised and is not metric/imperial
    3- Some of the fitting have not been soldered on straight.
    With a little more care this could have been a show piece.

    Hey guys,

    Well I can’t give a five star rating because I haven’t received my items yet. If everything shows up then it will be a five star. Unfortunaately, i am waiting some extra time because of the company that supplies you with the milk containers. Other then that things have been good and the people who you have answer your phones are pretty nice people.
    I was just down in Centennial Colorado and I was taking a class with DownSlope distilling. One of the owners Mitch, said he has a discussion with the owner. It’s cool to know I am being involved with a community that talks to one another.
    Paul Caldwell, the man who makes the cypress fermentors is a great guy also. Thanks for linking up with him and having him put together those products.

    Great customer service along the way…especially from the owner of the company. I felt that he honestly cared about my experience with Hillbilly Stills and went above and beyond to make sure I left as a satisfied customer. One of the items that I ordered took longer than they or I had expected but Mike (The owner) made sure that I felt good about how everything ended up. A real stand up guy.

    Received our 26-gallon Turn Key Distillery yesterday, and we couldn’t be more pleased. Solid USA craftsmanship and great attention to detail. We’re going to be using this still to make some really unique gin.

    Thank you, Mike, Brittany, and the rest of the team for helping us get started on a wonderful journey. Keep your eyes open for Printer’s Distillery!

    Over all an awesome purchase . Delivery was delayed 8 weeks due to availability of parts but it was worth the wait. The only negative , the fitting at the bottom of the condenser that connects to the parrot was not strait at all ,set the parrot off a few inches but Was able to bend it into place.
    I have not fired it up yet but if it performs like it looks it should be AWESOM it’s a work of ART ! Thanks Jarrod for keeping me up to date on the delivery and answering my questions. I have already made an additional purchase and will continue to purchase through Hillbilly stills!
