It is also against the rules for us to discuss it here. This is a wine forum.
For distillation, even for fuel, you need a federal permit. You may/will also need a local permit.
And it's true that forum rules specifically prohibit talk of distillation. There are other forums out there for that.
Keep it about wine, please. Thanks.
