    "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.
