How The Still Spirits "Turbo 500" "T500" works

Distillation is the basis of separation based on boiling points, purely for example, water has a boiling point of 100°C, ethanol (alcohol) has a boiling point of ~78°C and methanol ~65°C. In a gas (steam) form these chemical substances can exceed this temperature in the right conditions, but will return to liquid when they come back down below their boiling points.

The new T500 Reflux condenser works on the principles of ceiling temperatures, where through its intelligent design it prevents chemical substance above a certain boiling point being processed. Unlike other reflux condensers on the market the T500 works with a focus on the water flow and controlling the temperature of the water flow out. Assuming that the temperature of the water flow is stable, it is able to create a ceiling threshold temperature based on the water flow out. So effectively, If you are looking at collecting a product of a boiling point of ~78°C, water flow out would be set just to collect everything up to this temperature, then prevent any other products with a boiling point above ~78°C up the reflux and into the condenser.

This technology break through was only developed through the redesigning of the contemporary reflux, designed to make distillation easier with hassle free operation. It’s designed to set and forget as it operates until exhaustion, requiring simple initial setup with water flow and turning off once distillation is complete.

Still Spirits T500 - Instructional Video 1 - Mixing wash ingredients

Please note:

  • Ingredient wash has been upgraded since video production, we recommend the 6KG Still Spirits Triple Distill Production Pack
  • Mixing of wash does not require the yeast to be stirred, much easier to get the volume into a swirl vortex and sprinkle yeast on top

Cost of operation

The unit runs on a 2kw element, depending on the ingredients, will vary the operation time but between 4-5 hours is the general rule with a full run. At $0.13kwh, the unit cost a insignificant $1.30 in power consumption to operate, this is opposed to other forms of distillation units requiring LPG gas which can be quite expensive after 5 hours of operation.

 

Cost of final product

This will vary depending on what you are making in terms of whiskey or liqueurs, also the varying qualities available. But working on the highest quality and most recommended blend of ingredients you are looking at approximately $10 per the bottle which is equivalent to a $60+ triple distilled commercial grade alcohol bought from your everyday liquor outlet. Higher and lower alcohol quality grades can be achieved, but there is a sliding scale quality for quantity.

This figure has been fully aggravated to consider all aspects of cleaning, fermenting, distilling and blending of your drink.

 

Looking more detailed at ingredients

The use of premium ingredients will not only increase the quality of the end product, but will increase the ease of use of the distillation products. Providing you use very high quality ingredients (like the 6kg triple distilled production pack) there is no need to discard the first 50mls that is associated with other stills, as these yeasts produce one tenth of the metho and impurities during initial fermentation. Thus, any remaining impurities will be removed with the combination of the high % T500 reflux and the still spirits carbon filtration system.

It should be noted that a reflux will only increase the concentration not change quality the product is, high quality product in equals high quality out. Low quality yeasts and sugars can create compounds that produce undesired substances that have very close boiling points to the ~78°C in addition to high levels of metho ~65°C that can carry across and can fool the reading equipment used to test % of product. Spirit Hydrometers work on density and are only accurate when measuring pure spirit and water.
