Fist and foremost: Apologies for taking this heating thread in a different route! Tho one could say it is "heating" in a sense
There is something awesome about using a glass column still! There's such a clarity that it is hard to describe. I had not thought of using cinnamon ! I had once or twice used peppermint candy as a flavoring.
Here there is a license one can get to make alky fuel tax free, but also must send a form to ATF requesting a license and possibly a bond ( I had to way back when I obtained mine).
Moonshine ( as the drinkable kind is lovingly called ) is still NOT legal, and any of that stuff I make; used to be made in pure copper and glass throwing out the first gallon (actually it went into the fuel based alky) .
White oak is my preferred aging casks, but I get them from a vinegar shop.
I've heard of people using that "turbo yeast" . I do not , no real reason to do so. Time is on my side, I'm in no real hurry. Besides good ole bread, a little cheapo sugar, a little time is all I ever use.
