Used Two-Column PDA-2 Liquid Management Still ( $6,000 )
This complete PDA-2 liquid management fractionating column still was built by Mike McCaw, co-author of The Compleat Distiller and still builder in Seattle, WA.
The still can be used to make lower-proof, fuller-flavored distillates or run packed and slow to provide clean 190+-proof for vodka/gin/liqueur bases, etc.
The two-column setup allows for twice the production from the same boiler.
These were used as spirit stills (there was a separate wash still) for several years at a commercial distillery only to make very clean distillate and they are in excellent condition. The boiler is fabricated from a 55-gallon drum with reinforcement to support the columns. This still runs of electric heat (two 5500-watt heating elements) making it very inexpensive to get up and running.
Paid approximately $14k new. A great deal for someone who wants a pilot still, just needs to distill smaller amounts, or is starting a newer shop.
