Hi Frank,

As this site is located in the US, home distillation is illegal and can't be discussed. I know there are resources out there, but HomeBrewTalk isn't one of them.

I don't know what the laws are like in Bulgaria regarding this.

Good luck!
Jason

Before the mods lock this thread, evidently this is a good place for those kinds of discussions.

LOL, I just looked at the distillation forum....They have "are my hooch ruined?" threads on there as well.

I wonder if our alternate universe characters exist on that forum?

Yes, and they all wear silly hats too.

Frank, home distillation is illegal in the US.. I think some of the links from Gila's google search will help you...

Give homebrewing a shot though!

Home distillation of alcohol is illegal, the original poster could be talking about water to brew with...

Most likely, but you just like to demonize us water-distillers! One time I tried to distill some water but it tasted really nasty and I could light it on fire. I should have started a "Is my water ruined?!" thread.

But yeah, It can't (and won't) be discussed here. Thank you for your understanding by asking in a polite and civilised manner.

PS: Are you sure we can't get you hooked on brewing?
Sorry. Didn't mean to come off as rude. Just got to the point.
