Making Spirit from Scratch

Got a recipe for a nice black cherry burgundy? Got an opinion on a yeast that you just have to share? This is the place for you.

Making Spirit from Scratch

Post by onemanorthree » Fri Jan 09, 2015 12:31 pm

I;m hoping to make Whiskey with a frind over the coming months but have no idea really where to start. I'm lookin for a cheapish, small pot still but dont really understand how it'll work.

So do we make a worth first?
The put it through the distiller?

Was thinking of buying something like this but assume you have to make the wort outside this and then just distill using this?

Any pointers would be great.

Home distillation is illegal in Ireland so we can't really chat about it on the Beoir forum.

Distillation without a licence is illegal, just as driving without a licence is illegal. Doesn't make talking about driving illegal though, but you probably will find dedicated forums that are of more help.
