  9. Modern Moonshine Techniques by Bill Owens

    Modern Moonshine Techniques

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $12.50

    To learn how to make whiskey you first have to brew beer. Go to amazon. com and search "brewing" and you will find numerous books on this subject. The easy way, however, is to take a home brewing class offered at most home brew shops. These shops also sell brewing kits, malt extracts, dried malt extract (DME), malted barley, wheat, rye, and flaked corn. The next generation of distillers is going to come from the craft brewing industry since they know the complex flavors found in barley make great beer and will make great whiskey. Modern Moonshine Techniques has three sections: First is how to use sugar to distill a "moonshine." Second, how to build an inexpensive corn cooker and make corn whiskey. Finally, and most importantly, this book, with text and il- lustrations, shows how to build a mash tun to create a grain whiskey wash. And, then instructions to distill that wash into whiskey. Finally, get your DSP from the TTB, your State (ABC) license and open an "artisan" distillery. Then distill the grain whiskey here and put it into a barrel. It will, in a matter of months, pick up flavor and color as it matures. And, if you leave your whiskey in a charred oak barrel for two years, it becomes "straight Bourbon whiskey." Craft distilleries often drop the word "straight" and age their whiskey for less than one year. Learn More
  10. Moon-Shiners Manual

    Moon-Shiners Manual

    $20.00
    Originally published in 1976 The Moonshine Manual is a wonderful book if you live on a farm and can drive to town for a bag corn. Along with the typewriter the town Feed & Seed store have disappeared. Today there is a renaissance in micro-brewing and craft distilling. The principals of distilling described is this book are correct but the methods used by today's "urban" moonshiner have changed because every town in America has a home brew shop where he or she can take a home brewing class and buy his ingredients to make beer and moonshine. (Mostly yeast and sugar.) The techniques described in this book are not used by today's modern moonshiner because better how-to information (books) and equipment are readily available. It is estimated that there are 15,000 modern moonshiners in the USA and the industry is currently going through a renaissance. Learn More
