Home distilling

Hey everybody, I am a first time blogger here. Have you ever thought about home distilling? It can be a very rewarding hobby. It only takes a little research and before you know it you can be making your own moonshine. You can obtain a permit from the TTB for making ethanol as long as you never let it leave your property, you can make your own spirits.

The link for this permit is at the bottom of this post. You can also go to www.homedistiller.org for lots of great information. I would also encourage you to come and visit my website at hillbillystills.com.

Let me know if your interested in the distillation of alcohol or ethanol for fuel. I supply many Micro distilleries from the Gand Caymans to Puerto Rico.

In all honesty, I am just a country boy from Kentucky that has always been a tinkerer. I wanted to come up with a better distillation column than was currently offered for the home distiller Guess what I did? Myself and a good friend from Australia named Micheal Calcott developed the column I call the Amazing Hillbilly Flute. It is a all copper plated column. Basically we scaled down a commercial distillation column for a hobby sized still. I works amazingly well. Like I said come by and check us out. I look forward to reading your comments.
