This link appeared in the biofuels yahoo group
courtesy of Keith Addison. It is a great online 'how to' book about
a whole range of subjects ranging from medical advice to treating your dog for
distemper to Making Paints and Cements. The cover page states that it was
meant to be a single source reference book to be carried along when
people packed up a wagon and headed out into the unknown regions that are
settled suburbs today. The book is well indexed down at the bottom of the
the section about distillation is very interesting
and will take a long while to read completely through.
There is also a long chapter on brewing.
hope someone finds this info
