I have about two more weeks of fermenting on an Old Speckled Hen clone and I just finished off a case of Cooper's Australian Lager. Anyone else BYO?

I've recently found some places that sell "water distillation kits" that also can be used for distilling home whiskey. I won't get one yet, but also thinking of giving the Southern Spirit a try....after all my ganddaddy and uncles were shiners and I even had an uncle serve some time in the state penn for it.

Scourge, since your location is Tennessee, it would be easy to find a good ol' moonshine still running. Send me a quart of XX :D!
I know better than to ask a lot of questions, but my brother knows where to get it. Block-n-Tackle, as it is sometimes called. The ONLY reason you cannot make distilled spirits at home (like wine and beer) is because of IRS taxes. Personally, I think it's fine to make it just as much as it's fine to gtow your own marijuana for personal use. Government is too big and powerful. It's time for a new Whiskey Rebellion to let home brewers/vinters become home distillers without fear of BATF invasion.

New Zealand has led the way in allowing home distillers. There is a congressman (Bart Stupak-D) from Michigan who is trying to get legislation passed to allow home distillers. I won't post any links, but you can google distilling supplies to find the store in Texas that sells them.

The Old Speckled Hen clone is the first time that I used Irish Moss in beer. I have no idea how it will turn out, but the owner of the store told me that brewing with Irish Moss is becoming more common. Anyone else using it?
