BOURBON DISTILLERY KIT: Grainfather with Copper Alembic Dome Top and Pot Condenser|
Complete Bourbon Distillery Kit for those of you wanting to make Bourbon from Corn & Grain
Using the Grainfather and Alembic Condenser with Copper Dome Top you can create your very own micro-distillery. Bourbons are also made from corn & grain and follow a similar process to brewing beer in the Grainfather. After fermenting the bourbon wort, attach the dome and condenser and you will be distilling full flavoured, rich tasting bourbon.
Copper Dome Top: The large copper surface area of this dome top acts as a catalyst with the vapour in the Grainfather and helps enhance and concentrate the flavours and aromas as well as removing unwanted sulphur compounds. This produces a smoother, richer, sweeter tasting spirit.
New & Improved Copper Alembic Condenser: This condenser retains the flavour rather than stripping it out by refluxing. This comes with a thermometer, tubing and tap adaptor set. The new & improved version now incorporates a spiral structure modification inside the condenser called fins. The outer water jacket tube of the condenser has been modified internally to increase surface area with the inner distillate arm allowing for better cooling performance. Fins allow the cold water to pass through with some turbulence increasing surface area within the inner tube. The cooling sleeve has been extended back towards the temperature probe which gives the extra cooling length. This new condenser arm has improved the overall efficiency (heat transfer) of the Alembic condenser, allowing for a colder spirit collection temperature.
In addition, this kit comes with all the equipment needed to make bourbon successfully using the Grainfather. It also includes a grain kit to get you started, plus additional consumables for you to make your own bourbon with a custom corn grain bill. The full list of inclusions is as follows:
