Overview

I wrote this book to pass along the knowledge that was taught to me in the hills of Kentucky over 25 years ago. Along the way though I developed my own style.

Overview

I wrote this book to pass along the knowledge that was taught to me in the hills of Kentucky over 25 years ago. Along the way though I developed my own style. I boiled down what I learned and moved it indoors. I've developed designs that can be used right in the comfort of you own kitchen or out back in the woods! The truth is that Moonshining, aka "Home Distilling" is a folk art that helped build this country. Together we can make it live again, and have a little fun in the process!

"But isn't this dangerous" you ask. Cooking up spirits isn't any harder then properly roasting a Thanksgiving turkey. In fact it's so easy that a redneck like me can do it. And folks if I can do it, then imagine what you might be able to create! Imagine the holidays when you pull out your own special label. Think of the drinks and dishes you can concoct. Open up a whole new world of creativity and step into the hobby that is truly one of the founding traditions of our country.

There are dozens of reasons why people look into home distilling. Maybe you are looking for a new culinary branch to explore, maybe you just like the idea of knowing how to do things for yourself, perhaps you just like to keep the old ways alive or maybe you are just tired of our government telling us what we can and can not do!

In this book I will show you how easy and safe this hobby really is. This book is designed for the beginner distiller and I take the time to introduce you to all the concepts of distilling that you need to get started. One of the great thing about distilling is that you can keep it simple or as get as complicated as you could possible want. This journey is all about where you want to take it.

Please be advised that this is for informational purposes only. After you read this you will understand just how easy it is to make your own Moonshine, Whiskey, Vodka, Rum or even alternative fuels. Then once you understand how easy this is, how safe and how stupid the laws that restrict this are, then you can contact your congressman and/or senator and tell them to repeal the laws that are only in place to protect big businesses. Believe it or not there are Moonshiners everywhere, we have a grand tradition that goes back to the first settlers. Many historians will even tell you that it was moonshine that built this country!

It's time to take back our heritage. Thank you for your support!

Meet the Author

Jeff King was born in Heidelberg Germany in 1969. His father was shortly thereafter discharged from the Army and the family moved back to the Midwest where Jeff spent his early years attempting to recreate Huck Finn's aquatic adventures . This was just the beginning of Jeff's passion for travel and adventure! He has lived and traveled all over the US and abroad with a current tally of 42 states and 24 countries. Jeff has also sailed in two oceans, two seas and one gulf.

Not the kind of person to stay in one place too long Jeff's wanderlust has also lead to a multitude of careers. A true entrepreneur Jeff has lead business endeavors that include importing Art from Bali, Running a Video Game studio, PR for a top Silicon Valley marketing firm and even a brief run for local office as well as starting over half a dozen other small businesses, some successful and others that were more of a, well, "learning experience".

But it's what he does when he's not in the office that really makes for an exciting tale. If there is a sense of adventure or uncharted waters ahead you can be sure that he is the first to sign up. From learning the art of Moonshining in the hills of Kentucky to getting lost in the jungles of Central America, fly fishing the Yellowstone river in Montana, white water rafting in the Sierra's or even single handing a sloop through the islands of the Caribbean.

    Excellent book for someone looking for an introduction to the world of moonshining.  He takes you through a bit of the history then on to theory and finally walks you step by step through making your first batch.  Better yet it's a fun read and doesn't come off like reading stereo instructions.  I've checked out a few books on the topic and this was by far the best.  Other books either got to technical or worse yet were not even really about moonshine  making at all and more about pretty pictures of how to flavor drinks.

    Publisher's Description: This is a quick but very informative wo

    Publisher's Description: This is a quick but very informative workbook that will walk you, step-by-step, through everything you need to make moonshine and pretty much any other liquor in the comfort of your own kitchen. Cooking up spirits isn’t any harder then properly roasting a Thanksgiving Turkey. In fact it’s so easy that a redneck like me can do it. And folks if I can do it, then imagine what you might be able to create in your kitchen! Imagine the holidays when you pull out your own special label. Think of the drinks and dishes you can concoct. Open up a whole new world of creativity and step into the hobby of home distilling. There are dozens of reasons why people look into home distilling. Maybe you are looking for a new culinary branch to explore, maybe you just like the idea of knowing how to do things for yourself, perhaps you just like to keep the old ways alive or maybe you are just tired of our government telling us what we can and can not do! For decades big liquor companies have used our government to convince us that distilling was dangerous. They tell us that we’d blow ourselves up or go blind, HOGWASH! These are superstitions used to keep us from being independent and keep their friends rich. You know what’s dangerous? Frying turkeys, ha! Seriously though, in this book I will cover all of these misconceptions and show you how easy and safe it really is. Just remember that you can not go blind from properly made liquor any more then you are likely to die from properly cooked pork. But treat any food product incorrectly and you will not appreciate the outcome. Please be advised that this is for informational purposes only. After you read this you will understand just how easy it is to make your own Moonshine, Whiskey, Vodka, Rum or even alternative fuels. With this knowledge in hand please contact your congressman and/or senator and help us repeal the laws that are only in place to protect big businesses. Believe it or not there are Moonshiners everywhere and we have a grand tradition that goes back to the first settlers. Many historians will even tell you that it was moonshine that built this country! Lets take a step forward for our past and repeal ridiculous distilling laws! Thank you everyone for your support! Jeff Moonshiners Unite!
