    "Good Book"

    This book, basically, gives step by step instructions on building a still at home and making your own whiskey. It gives ingredients and equipment needed. I am not a whiskey drinker, but my husband is. Thanks to the author, we should be producing our own before you know it.

    "Making Your Own Whiskey"

    This book was well written. I was curious about the process and I believe that I now know. I bet the author has actually brewed or at least was there when some of the 'recipes were cooked. Get the book if you too are curious. I believe you will know all that you will need to know to make whiskey if you do so.

    "Guide to Building Your Own Still"

    I have no real experience but have been researching home distilling through multiple books. If you are in that category, this is the book for you. I feel I could use this book and a couple youTube videos and make my first run fine. I particularly like the advice in the build-or-buy chapter. This is the 3rd book I've gotten on the topic and this one is the best for me.

    "SIMPLE AND EASY BOOK"

    This book is very short and has a lot of information for the beginner. If you are looking for advanced techniques for distilling this book is not for you. This book has a few recipes for vodka and whiskey but the majority of the recipes are drink mixes. Overall I did like this book and will keep it around for reference.

    "interesting guide"

    As a beginner I refer to it a lot. For me it was I needed to get started but wish there was a little more detail. Meaning if you don't know anything about distilling you need every detail even if it's boring.

    "highly recommended"

    A really cool alcohol recipe book. It`s easy to read. The step-by-step instructions are clear. All the ingredients are not hard to find. I guess it would be cool to surprise friends by inviting them to the party with custom made drinks. Definitely will try it some tome and definitely recommend this book.

    "Building Your Own Still and Making Your Own Whiske"

    This book, for the most part, contains information adapted towards refining spirits, so consider this before obtaining. The book contains a couple of samples to take after soul formulas, in spite of the fact that I do see the cluster sizes are somewhat odd to consider most specialists have the standard 6.5-gallon cans, which these formulas won't fit into without change.
