Making Vodka At Home

Come hell or high water I'm going to figure this out. My grandfather and great uncles made wine and spirits and I never took the time to learn their secrets. People tell me you can make vodka in 15 minutes. I would be ok with spending a little more time and money to do a respectable job of it.

So I'm looking for any info. Books, personal experiences, videos, designs, anything.

Real vodka is a mixture of rye and wheat. Potato vodka (fake but the unfortunate norm) is a different and easier product. I have a recipe from my dad's side (Polish) that I would scan and send, if you read Polish...

Grappa might be worth a try too, I've had some homemade stuff that was most excellent (and VERY high octane )

Not sure where you got that info about real vodka being made from rye and wheat, not potatoes

Having said that, post up your dad's recipe -- I'm fluent in Polish. I can try and translate it for the rest of y'all

Hopefully you are better at translating polish than you are at posting.

There, FTFY. All better?

[Klay]Also, if you want to be pedantic, it's Polish, not polish. One's a language or nationality, the other is a substance used to give smoothness or gloss[/Klay]

Or it's a verb used to describe an action. For example, "when I was in Krakow, the Polish babuska polished my bike to a mirror finish"

Nas dravya. (I don't speak polish so pardon my spelling)

P.s. First slivovitz is on me.
