The use and possession of stills and other distilling equipment is heavily regulated by foreign, federal, state, and/or local laws. Distillation of alcohol for consumption or other use in the United States (and various other jurisdictions) without required federal and, where applicable, state licenses or permits is illegal and could result in jail time, fines, forfeiture of property, or other penalties.
Distilling alcohol without permits or licensing is illegal in many countries, including the United States. It is the customer's responsibility to research their local, state, and federal laws and abide by those laws. Bacchus and Barleycorn is not responsible for any damage or injury caused by either misuse or unlawful use. Stills can also be used to produce essential oils, vinegar, purified water and engine fuel (requires permit in USA).
The Pot Still Alembic Dome Top is copper and fits on to your T500 Boiler. This can be used in place of the T500 Boiler's stainless steel lid. The large copper surface area of this dome top acts as a catalyst with the vapor in the still and helps enhance and concentrate the flavors and aromas as well as remove unwanted sulfur compounds. This produces a smoother, richer, sweeter tasting spirit. Turn the Grainfather into a microdistillery by attaching the Alembic Condenser and Copper Dome Top.
