So my buddy at work likes drinking moonshine and such. He gets real moonshine threw a guy at work, but is getting costly and sometimes its not to tasty. He wants to make his own for personal consumption.(I know the legality of it and all) He likes the beer that i brew. We are looking to make our own. But thinking about doing something different and distilling beer before you carb it. Like going threw the same process of brewing it and fermenting it. But when its done heating it up to correct temps and distilling it. Would it work theory wise and would any of the spirits pick up any of the beer flavors or not??

The best thing I can say is that one of the dumbest things you can do is to advertise, and ask for advice about committing federal crimes online.

The only thing worse would be to do it on a hugely popular alcohol related site where it's more likely to be seen by ATF.

we were thinking about getting a big pressure cooker and modify it for a temp gauge and copper pipe to collect the steam.

Since distilling alcohol is illegal, it's against thr rules to discuss it here on Homebrewtalk. If you're so inclined, do a google search, and you'll find information on it.

But ya, drop the topic here. The mods will close this thread shortly.

LOL

45_70sharps' comment must have been far too subtly disguised for our budding shiner

And here comes the ice pick to the forehead!!!!!!

Distilling might be illegal but you could freeze your beer multiple times to condense it to a 20+% beer. Have a look at brewdog the Scottish brewery.
