Published in 1809, this book is now a window to history. If you are a home-brewer it is a fascinating bit of Americana, written at a time when home brewing was considered a necessity as well as a god given right. These were not “moonshine” or “hillbilly” stills for making rotgut corn whiskey. They were carefully made devices important for the economny of the times. The style of vocabulary is somewhat archaic to our minds, but it shows the literacy of language in bygone times. A good read and an accurate portrayal of distilling life in that era.In Historical section. Enjoy !!!Slainte!
