Books I own

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.

I figure this belongs in this category? Book are suppose to teach us I believe...

1. Browns alcohol motor fuel cookbook MH Brown,, (This one started it all 25 yrs ago)
2. The compleat distiller Nixon & McCaw (A serious leap in still technology)
3. Complete Joy of home brewing. Papazian Beer, but adaptable to other recipes.
4. Alcohol Fuel SW Mathewson (Farm book for medium scale industrial fuel)
5. How to make your own alcohol fuels LW Carley (Ditto)
6. Dictionary of the History of American Brewing and distilling industries. WL Downard
7. Elements of Fractional distillation, Robinson & Gilliland (college textbook, serious technical)
8. Complete Practical Distiller M. LaFayette Byrn ( reprint of a 1875 book)
9. Alcohol distillers manual Dona Carolina Distillers, R. DeRazor (self published? Very informative, one of my favorites)
10. Lore of still building, Howard & Gibat ( basic but a fun book)
11. Moonshine made simple, B. ford (ditto)
12. Manuf. of whiskey brandy and cordials. I. Hirsch (reprint from lindsey pubs.)
13 Practical distiller L Monzert (ditto)
14. making moonshine fuel. Ozzie McCoy ( tacky but fun and a bit of history)

I have a couple others but I can't find them at the moment....
I've learned alot from these. and I'm always on the hunt for new ones...


mod edit; I figure the books are better off in the books section. Read 'Teach Us' description for more info.

Do you have "The book on Gins and Vodka's" by Bob Emmons?
"Great art is created only through diligent and painstaking effort to perfect and polish oneself." by Buddhist filosofer Daisaku Ikeda.
