Making Spirits With An ‘Air Still’
Most people interested in home distilling never get started because they fail to find a beginner friendly Still. They give up on trying home distilling, thinking it is too difficult, unsafe or costly.
Welcome to the Air Still. In my opinion it is the best Still for beginners! The Air Still is easy to use, a convenient design and the cost effectiveness makes it the perfect choice for beginner distillers to get started in the hobby. With a Air Still, you can get started without any knowledge of distilling whatsoever and in 7-10 days you will be enjoying your first batch of spirits!
I estimated that a 70cl bottle of 40% ABV spirits with your chosen flavour/style can cost as little as £2.75 to make once you have invested in the kit needed from brewathome.shop
Designed with convenience in mind, the Air Still is the size of a large kettle. It can be operated on your kitchen bench or similar. It is perfect for people with limited space. There is no need for cooling water pipes or pumps (these are required with all other stills on the market).
Easy To Use
The standout reason I would choose the Air Still as the best still for beginners, is it’s simplicity to use. Literally all you need to do is follow the instructions provided, plug the unit in to the power supply, wait for it to do it’s thing, then enjoy the product you’ve produced, all in the comfort of your own home!
Easy To Maintain
Another great advantage is it’s easy maintenance. As a beginner the less cleaning/maintaining you need to do the better, giving you more time to focus on enjoying the process. Simply give it a wash out after each run, let it dry then store it away for next time.
Safe To Operate
The Air Still is just as safe to operate as your kettle at home. As long as you follow the instructions and treat it with respect, just as you do when making tea or coffee with your kettle, you have nothing to worry about when it comes to safely distilling at home.
There’s no need to spend large amounts of money on larger more complicated still when you’re a beginner. The Air Still is priced just right, giving beginner distillers a quality product.
If you decide to continue this hobby, you will still get great use out of it. You can use it for making small batches, testing new flavours, ingredients etc. That way you don’t risk wasting a lot of alcohol when experimenting.
BREWATHOME.SHOP will be adding further articles themselves on how to make spirits at home. However for now, read through the instruction manual and see what you think! It is available on our facebook group should you wish to learn more and join our community.
