Procedure for distillation
How does EasyStill work?
EasyStill boils the mash to steam, this is cooled down to liquid spirits and is collected in a plastic vessel.
The process has the following stages:
Mash is poured in the stainless boiling vessel (max up to the 4-litres mark) then one presses the start button.
The mash heats up and begins to boil.
The steam leaves the boiling vessel and enters the fan-cooled stainless cooler and is condensed back into liquid spirits.
The spirits drip slowly from the still. Here an activated charcoal filter is fitted.
The spirits collect in the transparent plastic vessel of polycarbonate. Purified and ready to drink or flavour with essences or herbs.
