Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Good Spirit News
“Looking to create your own beer, wine and spirits at home?  Look no further…[T]he directions by Mr. Meyer, make it all seem quite simple. The section on resources is highly recommended.”

Cleveland.com
“It's hard not to at least pick up and peruse a book called "Hooch"…Brewers with an organic sense, adventurous palate and love of gardening might be interested.”

Bookpage
“Whether it’s a way to make cider from apples, mead from honey, or gin infused with rose hips, Meyer is still at it, at the still, distilling step-by-step knowledge into inebriating wisdom.”

    Wonderful

    I have used this book as a guideline to make wine and each time it has come out perfect. I have learned quite a bit and have recommended it to my friends.
