The Home Distiller's Workbook: Your Guide to Making Moonshine, Whisky, Vodka, Rum and So Much More! Vol. 1

I wrote this book to pass along the knowledge that was taught to me in the hills of Kentucky over 25 years ago. Along the way though I developed my own style. I boiled down what I learned and moved it indoors. I’ve developed designs that can be used right in the comfort of you own kitchen or out back in the woods! The truth is that Moonshining, aka “Home Distilling” is a folk art that helped build this country. Together we can make it live again, and have a little fun in the process!

    I read this book last night. One of my friends has offerred to show me the ropes of distillation. The author seems to know a lot about this topic and it shows. In this book, he discusses the different types of distilling, the equipment needed when buying or making your own and the methodologies for producing the results. He offers up shopping lists, pictures and links to sites that can also be helpful. He does all of this with a charming style and a sense of humor.

    He also offers some VERY important tips that prevent problems you would encounter if you were trying to just figure out on your own.

    He includes some recipes – that include the ratios needed to produce product. Recipes for things like Whisky, Grappa, Scotch, Schnapps and Fuit Liquors.

    He even tells you how to prevent your spirits from being “off”.

    I’ll still be glad for personal instruction, but this book sure has helped me get ready for it and will be a great reference tool.

    After reading this book, I decided not to do distillation for personal reasons. The book helped me make my decision by being comprehensive, descriptive, and well written. No number of websites could help me with this decision… this book was well worth the price.

    If you do have a genuine desire to distil spirits I HIGHLY recommend this book. Previous reviews mentioned a problem with diagrams (and the author addressed this in their comments), but my more recent purchase of this book had ALL diagrams present and detailed.

    I want to thank the author for providing a timely revision of your best selling information.

    Good Overview, September 28, 2011
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I think this book is a good overview on distilling. It is informative and not boring (at least not to me. The only issue that I had was that it refers to about 15 diagrams throughout but there are only 4 diagrams and they are not numbered. I considered giving only 3 stars because of this but since this book was so inexpensive, I though that maybe I was asking too much of it. In any case, I enjoyed it.
