Shine On, Crazy Diamond

Sitting here, doing homework, and listening to some vintage Blues/Gillian Welch. And it occurs to me: I've never sampled true moonshine.

A short perusal of the web demonstrates, 'shine has kept up with the times (for educational purposes, that is) and there's no shortage of equipment out there to make some fine quality corn likker.

It would be a fine thing indeed to know someone who's mastered this traditional craft......yep, a fine thing indeed.

I seem to recall that the original Foxfire Book had a chapter on how to make moonshine. It should be available in your public library.

I'll have to check that, for research purposes, of course.

Some is good and fairly smooth, some not. Or so I'm told...;)

Any "secondhand" stories you've heard?
