I used scrap parts to make a hanging gas tank for test running motorcycles. I just need a valve and hose barb on the bottom and it'll be done.

Well you ain't too far from some of the best Poutine in BC.

Altough they wouldn't tell me,, I have a pretty good idea as to where they get their cheese. And if so, they may not have to refrigerate it before they use it due to the high turnaround.Much better the curds when they were not refrigerated, good for 48 Hrs on the counter in a sealed bag. Sold that way everywhere in Quebec.

Quick go to 1215 Esquimalt Road.

Every country, other than New Zealand, has laws against distilling alcohol. In the US, you can own one, but cannot use it for the production of alcohol. You can make distilled water or essential oils, but not alcohol.
Even if you only make a little.
Even if you don't sell it.
Even if it's fuel alcohol.

You can get a federal fuel alcohol permit, but to become a legal booze distillery takes $$ and time.

That said, there are a huge number of stills in the US that are making booze. I have a handful of friends with stills (I live in a very DIY community) and know of a guy who sells a lot of bootleg gin. He takes PayPal, and includes his home address in the email order form.
I've never met him, but we have a number of friends in common. No, I haven't tried his gin.

It seems that the feds aren't really going after small time distillers.

PayPal...LOL!!!

I have had straight shine before, and it sucks. I don't get why it's so interesting or desired?

I suppose I should post something I made, instead of continuing the hijack...I got nothin'.

Some of my buds were dual sport riding in Arkansas. They bought shine from a local Sheriff. I'm not making this up.

I may just know someone who buys shine sometimes. He does live quite a ways from the beer store. Was getting tired of friends showing up and drinking all his beer so he now gives them a few good shots first. Cuts down on their beer consumption later.....

I have this very old book here, from the days when there were mobile stills going from farm to farm in France to distill the farmer's harvest. It has all the recipes to turn shine into fancy liquors. Some of the ingredients are now a little obscure, especially if you have to translate them from French. Anyone wants a recipe.....nommez votre poison/liqueur.





And not to detract from the purpose of the thread, that would be something someone made I guess, as in "book restoration" and I made the plastic cover, just the way I learned at school back then when we had to cover all our books.....but Thanks Penelope for the resto job!
