    One thought on “Moonshine!: Recipes * Tall Tales * Drinking Songs * Historical Stuff * Knee-Slappers * How to Make It * How to Drink It * Pleasin' the Law * Recoverin' the Next Day”

    1. It's a good and thorough resource for the next frontier in homebrewing, albeit that such is currently illegal in the USA. The book design deserves mention; it's very individual, with a very specific aesthetic. The text, though, seems solid and informative, and reliable in that it fairly discusses the risks of distilling (and as a former chemist, I know something of the physical dangers thereof!), and the history info etc. are fascinating.

    2. Moonshine! Recipies, Tall Tales, Drinking' Songs, Historical Stuff, Knee-Slappers, How to Make It, How To Drink It, Pleasin' the Law, Recoverin' the Next Day by Matthew B. Rowley (Lark Books 2010)(641.874). This is a look at the history and traditions of homebrewed spirits. It includes recipes for those inclined to cook up a batch. My rating: 7/10, finished 2011.

    3. This book isn't nearly as hokey as the cover would lead you to believe. It does contain moonshine history and anecdotes, but it's also a complete guide to building a still and making all kinds of liquor with the included recipes. Moonshiners have told me there is a general lack of accurate information on home distilling, so this book might help change that.

    4. I was enjoying this book but somebody swiped it out from under me. That's okay, I think they're going to encourage tinkerer/machinist Grandpa to assemble a modest contraption. We do love our whiskey.

    5. Matthew Rowley writes an entertaining and informative book on the history, culture, and creation of home distilled liquid refreshments. High marks to both Rowley and the book's designer for this one.

    6. Moderately entertaining and informative. It might be an OK primer text for a non-scientist course on whiskey making.

    7. practical instruction, with great whiskey trivia. i'm certainly not making any illicit spirits (some revenuers may be able to read).

    8. Good fun introduction to moonshine history, facts, and distilling that strikes the right balance between being a bathroom reader and a basic get-started manual.
