Soooo, how do I bid on the contraband conical?

BTW, I'd like to sink my knuckles into that douches face. I don't care if he's old. He's holding that jar like he found a smoking gun. It's just alcohol, for god's sake (I bet he goes right home and mixes a gimlet for himself after that pic is taken). Don't get this libertarian started.

Something looks 'wrong' with that picture. Meaning Photoshop.
Is that supposed to be METH in the jar? My StarSan is liquid.
Edit: I am mistaking that white appearance in the jar for powder. I see it is just the refraction. Still, look at the shadow around the Sheriff. Looks funny.
Everything in Alabama that is fun is illegal, unless you count sex with your sister.
Sorry. Georgia joke. Bama fans, feel free to hit me back.

LOL, and it looks like somebody could use a little bran in their diet, if you know what I mean.

No doubt. They don't call it Blingmann for nothing. Nice.

Nothing there looks like it would be distilled. to people that know nothing about brewing, the vessels with airlocks look like something wrong, but really as a home brewer all I see is an asshole surrounded by brewing equipment.

Here's a link to some pics of the guy's gear. He has a spotless record and 2 tours in Iraq (from other forum).

my 2c on the report is first, homebrewing in Alabama is illegal. So he, was breaking the law. Suppose he was not distilling, then where did the 8 gallons of moonshine come from? The conical would make a great pot still by simply adding some elements. The sheriff must know something about moonshine because the report mentioned the "bead". I respect the brewer for being a Vet but even so, the law is the last word when it comes to what we can and cannot do. Firearm found at an illegal site, even though legal, always adds to the alleged crime. I think he'll be learnig how to do stuff worse that making beer at home for the next few months, if he doesn't get probation.
