    You should have been at the convention in Winston-Salem. Ain't saying who brought it. But man that was smooooth. Also had some with apple in it. It tasted like drinking mom's apple pie.

    I think if you can get Southern Girl's attention I bet she could fix you up with a recipe.

    There are some plans on Google for reflex stills. Also some copper vat stills.
    Tracers work both ways.

    Boy I grew up with had cousins that ran moon in NC. They had a 1964 Ford 4 speed with a 406 and three 2's. Yes, it was a new car. Big tank in the trunk - not for gas. They use to run the hills at night with no lights.

    Anyway, they shared some with us and also how they made their own. They mixed it with grape juice and called it Purple Jesus. I had two glasses, I think, so pretty much all I ever learned was lost along with all the brain cells that got killed on that night. I think I had a lot of fun that night! They told me I did.

    They got you hammered so you wouldn't remember their secret recipe.

    It is prefectly legal to make your owned distilled spirits.....I forget the amount...its a few gallons or so a year....

    Probably some sites on the web for making whiskey and rum etc....

    Its poison though....I wouldnt recommend drinking any sort of alcoholic beverage to anyone....

    I have goten a few recipes from the net but most suck
    I guess I am looking for some first hand opinions
    so far it seems people like the fruit blends the best
    I have had the grape ape (purple jesus) and the hard cider booth are fine but
    I guess I am looking for something stiff and smooth at the same time.
    Hard to do as a home brew

    It's not legal to distill anywhere in the country in any amount. But you can make a 63 proof "beer" using a super high gravity yeast. I imagine if you age that for a year or so it won't taste too bad.

    Got a recipe or any idea where to get the super high gravity yeast?
