The guy behind me was into this for a little while....he is a bit of an odd duck, but a real good guy also made his own Beer, learned how to be a black smith and built his own forge, and built his own trebuchet....now he is making throwing axes and stars.

He had a small still and tried different things, apple, peaches (we have several peach trees) cherry, strawberry....you name it....some of it was pretty good...others gawd horrable....but it did look kinda fun.

First of all, shine is illegal even if you don't distribute it. Second, commercial shine ain't shine.

OP is up North. I think the laws are a little more relaxed for personal consumption. I think they can even mailorder a prefab still kit!

Some of it isn't bad. I got to do a bunch of back to back taste tests of the commercial and "the good stuff" when back in PEI for a funeral this winter.

The general consensus was it wasn't bad, but there was something lost in the commercialization. It just didn't have a complex flavour profile that we were used to.

No, really!

The store stuff was bland. It didn't have any character, the home made stuff has lots more taste to it, once you get used to it sucking all the moisture out of your tissues when it goes down

Real shine is hard to come by. I have a sneaking feeling that most of the folks doing flavored moonshine are starting out with a bottle of Everclear.

Apple Pie is my wifes favorite...but it ain't shine.

this email came recently.......
Hello,
As many of you are probably already aware, the TTB (Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau), which is the federal government agency that controls virtually all things related to alcohol, formally requested the list of sales of distillers, distillation columns, and boilers. The request encompasses all sales of these products (and these products only- supplies and other equipment are not required to be documented) for the past three years, and quarterly reports from this point on. This appears to have been an industry wide movement, as all of the major producers and distributors have received the same request. We are contacting you to let you know that, based on your purchase date and the product(s) that you purchased, your information will be included on our list to the TTB.
We have fielded a very large number of phone calls and e-mails asking what the TTB intends to do with this information. This is something that we cannot answer. There are many theories being discussed on various forums, including our own (www.brewhausforum.com), however, they are not currently substantiated. Even though it should not have a significant effect to those not using the equipment to distill alcohol or those who have already obtain proper licensing, it can still prove to be an inconvenience should the government act on the information.
One possible positive side to this action is that it has energized many people who support hobby distillation (who are obviously the most concerned over the request), and there is now some movement to press for legalization of hobby distillation. If you would be interested in supporting this movement, please visit our forum.
While this is obviously beyond our control, we are sorry to be the bearer of such news.
Sincerely,
Brewhaus

its all about the condenser...

My uncle had a still in Arkansas. Tried to teach me the art, long story short, the rest of the still can be a total cludge, as long as the condenser was right, it would do the job. Good condensers are often passed from one generation to the next, with some being more than 100 years old.

Same guy taught me to shoot too, sure miss that ole guy!
