  • Flavoring and aging your spirits
  • Keeping safety first when working with flammable materials, such as ethanol
  • Yeast styles and nutritional requirements
  • Different methods of distillation and equipment
  • Post-distillation process
  • And of course, fun drink recipes (Try the Mudslide or the Cherry Bomb )

   perfect for the new-be
I feel like I could use this book and a couple youTube videos to make my first run go smoothly, he said. I particularly liked the advice in the build-or-buy chapter. This is the third book I've gotten on the topic and this one is the best for me.

   If you are going to distill spirits, get this ...
If they had a college course this would be the book.

   Overall a great introduction.
This is a great introduction to modern hobby distilling, Robert E. Byrd, of Hopkins, said. However, it is true that the same amount of time spent on the topic in YouTube would yield similar results. It is very convenient to have so much basic knowledge all in one place, said Dr. Goin. Morris also includes recipes and recommendations of sources for equipment and further study. Morris spent a lot of time and energy on charcoal filtration. It almost felt more like filler than the introductory knowledge the rest of the volume provides. Overall a great introduction to the game of thrones.

   Reads like the author had to meet a word count
This book has some great information in it and as a beginner, it was a good help when running my first still. The author gives you a piece of information and then repackages it three more times without adding anything new. It feels like a cheap way to trick consumers into thinking it will be a more in depth look into the topic and it's not until you've bought it that you realize it feels like it was written by a high schooler with a deadline.

   Good try??? But NOT REALLY
Bought in anticipation of something special, especially since the book is so large. It's just that the judge didn't see it that way." Do a quick search using Jeeves and you'll find what you're looking for. Even the recipes are not worth the paper they are written on.

   Totally worth it

   Great book but terrible shipping
I almost feel bad leaving this review, because I really enjoyed the book. The impact of this review will be felt most by book authors. If you're looking for a book on distilling, I'll just say, if you're looking for a book on distilling, buy this one. Great book. This book is exactly what I hoped for when I bought it. Because, we're not allowed to call ourselves Christian, we're called 4*. The front cover of the book is inoperative, the back cover is inoperative and the front cover is missing. It arrived with a few other items, so when it arrived in the box it was completely bent out of shape. I tried to flatten it out, but it kept coming back. The book was originally written with a very narrow margin of error, making it super annoying to read, with extreme curvature of the pages. This is a book that will stand in a class by itself. But I expect that when I order a book, it will arrive to me with some sort of repair.

   Check your state's legal laws before you commit
My rating is not based on the book itself, but on the review. I gave it to my husband for Christmas, telling him he could follow up with the equipment if he liked what he read. Before you commit, check your state's laws.

   Does not live up to the hype....
Even if you are going to distill something, it is almost certain that you will find no useful information. Do yourself a favor and look up homedistiller. org.

   Great book to learn about distinling
I've done some research and came to this great book. He also notes that the "processes work well with many other forms of physical therapy." Not a lot of recipes, but enough to get you going, Huff said.
