Many people have experienced great success making their own beer or wine at home  In recent years a number of hobbyists have become interested in making distilled spirits   However distilled spirits are complicated to produce and the process presents uniue safety issues In addition alcohol distillation without a license is illegal in most countries including the United States and CanadaFrom mashing and fermenting to building a small column still Craft Distilling is a complete guide to  creating high uality  whiskey rum and at home. This book offers a very practical overview of home distilling The writing style is nice but it could have done with a bit editing Also the personal comments about how her hubby likes his morning coffee etc could have been tuned down a notch but that's just her style I guess I do however think it is a bit of a shame that it only tells you how to do things and not why things work a certain way It only tells her personal story and experiences with distillation ranging from her frustration with the US tax and permit system to her homesteading lifestyle All well and good but I would like information about different types of stills in depth chemical analyses and details about the distillation process itself which I think is madatory information for such a book So nice read but a bit thin on the info

If you're looking to distill legal spirits at home this book will only get you part way there I was hoping it would have some details about the forms you need to fill out both at the federal and state level in the US but she devotes all of a page and a half to the subject of actually becoming permitted to distill doesn't actually say much about it Her discussion on the process of distillation is alright She gets oddly specific about some details and really vague about others If you're interested in how to distill spirits there are much better books availableThe most useful part of the book is the recipes she includes for different spirits Unlike many other books she includes some for every major class of liuor eg gin vodka teuila bourbon scotch and other whiskiesThis is personal preference but I also very much dislike her writing style It's very personal to the point that she make's remarks at the end of chapters like That's a good idea I'll have to remember to do it or Almost missed last call for happy hour I know it's supposed to be funny but it's very much a turn offOverall if you know nothing about distilling there's some useful information here but it's often too vague or overly specific If you've read any decent book about distilling there's not much to get out of this
