The LIQUOR QUIK™ SpiritMaker™ is a 1.05 USG (4L) stainless steel electric distilling unit that is specifically manufactured for making alcohol. This 320 watt model will distill ethanol/water solutions (sugar vodkas, rum washes), wine, or essential oils. However, it is not recommended to use the distiller to distill whiskies or grain vodkas. The element will eventually overheat trying to cook the grains. Pre-cook grains first in a proper cooker and then safely distill the beer/whiskey wort in the SpiritMaker. The lower wattage element vaporizes the alcohol before the water. The distiller is still capable of distilling water but will take a little longer than the standard 565 watt water distillation model. Alcohol distillation takes an hour to produce about one quart (750 mL) of 60-65% ABV ethanol (assuming starting with a 20% ABV SuperYeast™ X-Press or equivalent turbo-yeast). Switch off the unit when you have collected 2 quarts (1.5 L) of alcohol. If you continue to run the unit, the quality and output of the alcohol will be greatly diminished, until eventually you will end up with the same alco-base % ABV you started with. The unit will automatically switch itself off when the boiling vessel is empty.
