I will second the validity and excellence of the www.homedistiller.org/forums web forums.. Like you guys here.. they have always given "my friend" great advice about the age old should be legal process of making liquor.

Well If distilling is harming others, then perhaps. Some laws are just stupid you know. Though some people seem to NEED to be constantly governed.

i have "heard" that you can distill a bad batch of beer to high proof ethanol(vodka) using a reflux still which strips out all flavours but if you use a pot still for a flavoured spirit such as whiskey, the hops spoil it.

This thread is chock full of mis-information. In New Zealand they legalized home distilling in 1996 and in the 18 years it has been legal, there is not 1 single case of poisoning or damage to persons or property from operation of a home still. The government would not lose "billions of dollars" or even millions. Look at the alcoholic beverage sales in NZ since legalization... it increased profits of commercial operations. All this info is available through the google machine.

I know this is an old thread, but I'm terrified of other people reading it and getting completely incorrect advice. I am, by no means, advocating participation in an illegal activity. I'm just trying to prevent people from learning false information. As soon as hobby distilling is legalized, hopefully HBT will allow an additional category for those wishing to discuss it. It will be happening within a year.

What makes you so sure? This is really the only thing holding me back from doing it.

Can't you freeze it and take the ice away much more simply?

Our forum rules specifically prohibit discussion of distillation.
