mike=when is book due out and is it in similar vein to that brilliant book "making gin and vodka???? i'm almost thru john stone's book and it's certainly the next step from beginner mode
The book has had it's 12th proof reading (!) and will be with the printer tomorrow. It's a straight follow-on to Johns book, but with some corrections and additions - including a rather neat new still-head designed and now used by John, and some maunderings by me about heater control and distillation. It will be available in pdf form at a ridiculously cheap price (am I doing well?) and the printed version will go for a higher price to defray the printing and postage costs. Anyone buying the pdf will get a credit towards the printed version, which of course you will obviously want to have by your elbow!!! Also, addenda will be published and sent to all who have bought the book, at no charge. That way we hope the book will be a living thing that doesn't go out of date and will be something of continuing value to its buyers.
My advice? Download the pdf and see if it meets your needs - particularly if you've bought his previous book already. We don't want people to spend a heap of money on a printed book they don't need (though it would look great on your bookshelf, and it has such purty pictures - 8 more than before, not to mention the cover page!!!)
Note: this email sent to you without copying to Distillers as I still feel uncomfortable about advertising amongst my friends.
All the best
