8 Gallon with 2 Inch Diameter Dual Purpose Pro. A high quality Dual Purpose Pro still includes sight glass. You can use this sight glass as an infusion chamber or gin basket to hold botanicals. You can also clamp in sight glass below the reflux condenser to watch the reflux action. An awesome way to infuse the vapor to get a boost of flavor in the distillate.  Run a strawberry brandy and add some fresh strawberries to the sight glass to infuse the vapor with the taste of fresh strawberries or add cinnamon sticks, herbs, and spices to make a spiced whiskey. Be creative and make your own infusions.
This Dual Purpose Pro still will produce 180 to 190 proof moonshine as a reflux still and will also run as a pot still to carry over flavor at about 120 proof
For reflux it is as easy as running water to both reflux condenser and final product condenser. Pack the column with rings and copper mesh and your running a reflux alcohol still or run as a pot still by running water to just the final product condenser on the arm and inserting one roll of copper in the tower.  
Eight gallon milk can with 2″ port for heating element. Also includes cap, clamp, and gasket to cap off and be used with a gas burner or electric hot plate.

    I went with this pro still and thought it might be a little over kill but it turns out I love it. It has options that i like. The sight glass is cool and it even came with a screen gasket. happy customer

    Built like a brick shit house. Looks and works great. Would have been a 5 star but the view glass piece is slightly crooked when clamped due to one of the mount rings being just out of level. I’m kind of obsessive about level and plumb, a curse. Any size unit you choose will impress you in the quality.

    5 stars…..they have great customer service in addition to the great products. I had a small issue and they were there right away to fix it.

    Totally impressed with my experience with Mile Hi and the equipment. UPS didn’t handle the package with much care, the box looked like it had been dropped from a plane without a parachute. However, the good folks at Mile Hi done an exceptional job of packing and nothing inside was damaged.

    The quality of material and workmanship are top notch. This thing is a BEAST and the welding is a thing of beauty.All the parts top quality and the stainless steel is flawless.

    So far it’s only been through a cleaning, so I haven’t had to chance to learned how it behaves and the tweaks to get the best efficiency from it. But there is no doubt it should perform to my expectations and last generations beyond me.

    As I already emailed these folks on this. It is freaking awesome. The weld work is top notch. everything fits great and the polish is great. Packed very well and got it way sooner than I expected. Even if your not using it, it would make great corner art in the house. Thanks again Mile Hi for making American!

    I’m not much of a writer. I will say this though. Great products at a great price. The guys were professional and helped me out, with everything that, I couldn’t ask for. the welds were better than I have ever seen. It was also packed way better than I expected. They will definitely get my business from now on. Keep up the great work guys. Thanks a million Mile High!

    I had already purchased the 26 gallon flute still, but find that as I experiment with 6 gallon batches of new recipes, I needed a smaller still.

    Fantastic quality – even without using packing and rasching rings (came with the still) I can get 60-75% ABV with just 1 run (like a pot still on steroids!). The vapor thermometer at top of the column is essential – get it.

    THANK YOU Mile Hi!

    Ordered this delivery was faster then expected. Very well packaged, outer box looked like hell but the way the contents were packaged within it. Nothing was damaged or missing.

    Assembled the item to inspect it very well made durable and high quality, very pleased with my choice.

    Absolutely fantastic!! This still is the real deal for home use. Finally got to make my first run so I waited to write a review. Not disappointed at all! First time running a reflux system and it ran great. 190 first run! The still is a work of art! Very easy to assemble. Clamps and hoses all fit tight. Highly Highly recommend! Thank you Mile Hi for a great product!

    I am well pleased with my purchase. It is high quality and well constructed. I will use Mile Hi for all of my distilling needs in the future. I highly recommend for the beginner distiller.

    Received the still last week and love it. Looks beautiful and runs even better.
    Thanks again !!!!

    I bought this last year with a bill of extras. This runs really nice. I use it to test things that we might want to run later in a our 30 gal pot. I like that I can configure it in several different ways. No matter how I configure it, the results are always great. Now I can also use it in reflux, run it hard and get very high % so I can make hand sanitizer. Made in AMERICA does not always mean to expensive.

  14. klautorepair (verified owner)

    I could not be happier with my purchase! This truly is a high quality product, that works great. I would recommend Mile High products to anyone, and I will definitely be buying more equipment.


  15. Nasty H (verified owner)

    Love it works great will not be disappointed with this even a beginner can figure this out and run like a pro gets good flavors as a pot and reflux is hand sanitizer one run and I’m pretty confident in the ability of this little thing can’t wait for my 16 gallon 4” flute thanks mile hi

    Wow! Great product and quick service! We bought this as a “Christmas present” expecting it to arrive in Feb, but it arrived Christmas Eve, so was wrapped and under the tree. We are very impressed with the quality of all the parts. The welds are superb. We can’t wait to try it out!

  17. brad.nors (verified owner)

    WOW, I am blown away after receiving this still.
    This is the nicest still I ever seen. I am so happy i did not waste your money buying cheap china crap. I saved up my money and got this one instead. I think in the long run this still will last forever.
    After my first run I can not stop telling people about this still. The run was awesome and took about half the time of my old one. Much cleaner and higher proof.
    The company was great to work with. I call and had them add ideas to my order before shipping and it was perfect.
    They answered all my question before I ordered.
    I can not say enough about how well this still is built. Clean up took no time.
    Spend the money and get the best.
    Thank Mile HI for the great still

  18. vkcog (verified owner)

    Wow, what an absolutely wonderful piece of equipment in every way … it is very obvious that Mile Hi take great pride in their workmanship and use of the highest quality materials. It was delivered fully intact due to it’s extremely well thought out packaging … even UPS couldn’t damage the shipment 😉

    I would not hesitate to recommend Mile Hi and this still to anyone

    Thank you guys

  19. rick mabie (verified owner)

    Simply a work of art can’t wait to use. all orders arrived much quicker than I expected and in perfect condition. Will be ordering potential oil basket as soon as I can and have already referred to another and they have made an order. Instructional videos are very informational also. Web site saved for easy access.

    Thank you so much

  20. Joshua Wirtala (verified owner)

    Thank you so much. This still has surpassed all of my expectations. The care that has gone into making this is clear in every weld. It is BEAUTIFUL. I couldn’t have asked for more and will be returning for anything else that I need.
