From Harvest to Moonshine by Byron Ford


There was a time when Moonshine was considered dangerous to your health compared to commercial spirit. But today, with new techniques and products, that is history. 

This book has brought out from the closet the modern day methods of producing Moonshine without the many side effects and hangovers associated with it by reputation. It covers methods and techniques that many commercial spirit manufacturers are using today, with a touch of moonshine nostalgia to keep it authentic. 

From the successful beginnings of the book Moonshine Made Simple and The Still Makers Manual, this tome continues to expand your knowledge and skills to produce a fine product that will not only amaze you, but your friends as well. Included is a large section on essential oils and perfumes.

By Zymurgy Bob
Making Fine Spirits is a book for the rankest beginning potstiller who is interested in learning to make naturally-flavored "brown" spirits, whiskeys (and also whiskeys), brandies, and rums. It will guide him (and her, if she's interested) through the questions that need to be answered, and the decisions that need to be made to start the new distiller on the way to creating that first amber drop of ambrosia.
You'll learn distillation lore, which dangers are real, and which are bogus. You'll learn how to build a small but useful coffeepot still in a day, without soldering, and the next day you'll learn how to make a respectable brandy from the cheapest grocery store wine in that still.
You'll build on your experiences with the coffeepot still to construct a 5-gallon potstill, and then a 15-gallon potstill. Making Fine Spirits is also a book for the advanced potstiller as well.
