Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


How it's done and then some. If you could buy only one "make your own" book for the rest of your life, this is it. It's like getting a whole shelf of books for the price of one.

The author not only tells you how to make darned near any kind of beer, wine, liqueur and whiskey you can imagine, he also tells you how to make the equipment to do it with.

Have you ever wondered how a still is made? Well wonder no ore, there are 8 types illustrated here and while it's illegal to build or possess a still, the illustrations are so complete, you could build one. Includes plans and operating instructions from underground moonshiner manuals used in Mideast oil fields.

From recipes to stills, make your own capers, kegs, scales and a malt factory out of an old freezer. It's all here!

Easy to read and humorous. This book entertains you with Alaskan tales and bootlegger's lore while you learn to make everything from beer and blossom wines, to horse turd whiskey and bathtub gin.

Synopsis:

and#160;
A new generation of urban bootleggers is distilling whiskey at home, and cocktail enthusiasts have embraced the nuances of brown liquors. Written by the founders of Kings County Distillery, New York Cityand#8217;s first distillery since Prohibition, this spirited illustrated book explores Americaand#8217;s age-old love affair with whiskey. It begins with chapters on whiskeyand#8217;s history and culture from 1640 to today, when the DIY trend and the classic cocktail craze have conspired to make it the next big thing. For those thirsty for practical information, the book next provides a detailed, easy-to-follow guide to safe home distilling, complete with a list of supplies, step-by-step instructions, and helpful pictures, anecdotes, and tips. The final section focuses on the contemporary whiskey scene, featuring a list of microdistillers, cocktail and food recipes from the countryand#8217;s hottest mixologists and chefs, and an opinionated guide to building your own whiskey collection. Praise for The Kings County Distillery Guide to Urban Moonshining:

and#147;The moonshining world is notoriously full of orally-perpetuated misinformation and the legitimate whiskey industry is full of marketing lies and half-truths; Spoelman and Haskell have thankfully defied those traditions and released an educational book of honesty and transparency.and#8221; and#151;Serious Eats
