Please Note: This accessory is only suitable for our larger alembic stills due to their design and volume capacity. (10 Liter copper alembic for the distillation from liquids or 20 Liter copper alembic still for the distillation of a mash).
Any alcoholic distillation for human consumption must follow and respect basic distillation rules and guidelines in order to avoid personal injury.
During the distillation process it is very important to separate the distillate results in terms of the alcoholic percentage, commonly know as the separation of the Heads Hearts & Tails.
The copper parrot spout, which is attached to the exiting “Biqueira” of the condensing recipient, is made to hold an alcoholmeter (not included) also known as a hydrometer. This alcoholmeter provides the distiller with constant and accurate information on the alcohol level of the exiting distillate when this is coming out of the condenser.
The distillate enters and travels down the tube and into the parrot spout’s chamber where the alcoholmeter is inserted and floats in the liquid. Depending on the density of the distillate the alcoholmeter will rise or lower. The reading is taken at the point where the upper surface of the liquid touches the alcoholmeter, thus providing a reading of the alcoholic percentage of the distillate.
The parrot spout includes three separate couplings with different connecting diameters so that it may be used with any of our alembic model stills.
