Any comments on this book?
- It once was lost but now is found! While rooting around in my workshop cupboards in search of my lawn mower manual I found a book on distilling that I thought had been out on "permanent loan" to one of my several friends who have access to my library and interests similar to our own.Does anybody else out there have a copy of:The Secrets of Building an Alcohol Producing StillWritten and illustrated by Vincent R. GingeryPublished by Vincent R. GingeryFordland, MissouriCopyright 1994ISBN 1-878087-16-9This is the book that first inspired me to attempt the hobby that I am now enjoying so much. I now have most of the "standard" works on the subject - but just wondered if anyone out there had ever used, or heard of this book! The author's preface is only tongue in cheek. This is actually a "how to" book for making potable spirits. Several chapters on: making your own malt ; building the sprouting trays ; drying the sprouts ; grinding the malt ; mashing ; etc.The "tongue in cheek" preface reads as follows:"You can build this six gallon electric still, and use it to turn corn, sugar, and other materials into a concentrated fuel for almost any internal combustion engine. - etc."You don't have to read very closely between the lines go get the author's intent!But again my question - what do you think about this book? I am quite certain that I'm not the only one that has it!
