No, they don't cost just a dollar! Pricing generally ranges between $400 and $700. Brewhaus stills are built to order. They are offered with 8 or 15 gallon kettle sizes or the column is available for attachment to a beer keg (new kegs are also available). Other options include a gin basket, extended column for fractional (reflux) distilling and variable methods of heating including an internal element, belt style heater, or it can be direct fired. There's a display model in the store that you can look at and we can discuss what options are best for your situation and what you are interested in making.
