Note, this product is only compatible with our 8 gallon stainless still.

Distillation Heat Source Options

  • Distilling over a wood fire makes temperature control difficult, it's dangerous, and makes a mess of your still.
  • Distilling over a propane burner offers better temperature control, but it's the most expensive heating source for stills (due to the high cost of propane).
  • Electric hot plates are very convenient, but are expensive and a special adapter is required to use them with most milk can distillers.
  • An electric heating element combines the best qualities of all of the options. They're high output, they're affordable, and they're much safer than an open flame.


This electric heating element kit plugs into the 1.5" ferrule in the boiler of our 8 gallon stainless steel still and it can be plugged into a dial controller or even a Beverage Commander control box. It's made from high quality stainless steel and won't tarnish. We've tested a lot of elements over the years and this one has out performed every single one of them.

Praise from our customers

It shipped the same day I ordered it and was at my door 3 days later. The parts went together like a dream. Everything fit exactly as it was supposed to. The video instructions made this build very easy.
