Craft of Whisky Distilling

Read a good book? Any topic is a good one. If it is about moonshine of other spirits, beer, or wine then that is a bonus.

Just found this this morning. I searched to check if it had posted before, please excuse me if it has. I have yet to read the entire craft book, but the pics are amazing as i scanned over it. Hope you enjoy.

I found this awhile ago. It's a good read, really got me thinking. :idea:

I've had that book for awhile. Good pictures, but first-grade knowledge in terms of technical details and where we are in this forum. Bills a good guy but some of his information (not necessarily referring to this book) isn't correct. A very knowledgeable and professional distiller I spoke to last week warned about scrutinizing anything coming from the ADI. I'd have to agree. The books give a good overview of what is going on in the craft distilling world, and have some financial tables. God help you though if you base your business simply off what is in that book.

Just finished reading it. I enjoyed it, and picked up a few pointers. I did enjoy the graphics and the explantions were in plain english or either all this distilling jargon is really starting to sink in. But I doubt its the latter :doh:

I printed the entire thing out and put it in a binder. an excellent resource. there are a number of books on Harry's site I will end up doing the same with.
