MOONSHINE! By Matthew B. Rowley

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.

Matt was an occasional correspondent to the yahoo Distillers list. A bright and well-informed guy, conversant with what we hobbyist are doing (I suspect he's one of us, but can't say so), and it's a great book.

You can make whisky in a reflux still, you can make vodka in a potstill,
and you can eat chicken noodle soup with a crescent wrench. But...

I run into him at most of the ADI conferences and have him as a friend on facebook. He gave me a signed copy a couple years ago.
Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.

That's the book that got me back into this after a 30 year hiatus. Saw it at the local library while getting books for my kid. Read it and went...OOH...GOTTA TRY THAT AGAIN! Then got Ian Smiley's book and found HD and on and on and on....

Great book!
