    I used to know a guy in Fraiser that made his own wine. He had about three teeth.

    Never made it but when I went up to the Tennessee vs. Florida game in Knoxville I was suprised how many people tailgating were drinking moonshine, especially younger people... Wasn't terrible...

    Re: Ever made moonshine or Wiskey?

    my best friend's dad used to. i'd stop over, he would say "have a snort of this" He kept it in a dark green glass jug. He would never say what was in it. It always tasted bad, but I wasn't ever going to turn him down. I was a college student at the time, not much extra cash to spend on alcohol, so never turn down the free stuff.

    Not a good idea. Maybe not quite as bad, but, on a Federal Level, you might as well grow some marijauna along with it. Punishment probably won't be much more.

    Also, be careful. This isn't like making wine, throwing a few things together, watching it ferment and then drinking it. If not done properly, it can be quite hazardous to your health.

    It's legal to make liquor, wine, beer, etc... for your own use.

    Make it out of potato skins. I want to see if someone can actually do it.

    Re: Ever made moonshine or Wiskey?

    If you can make good beer then you have a chance to make good whiskey, so I suggest you start out making beer, at least a couple of batches. If you start with a bad mash (basically the step before beer) you will have bad whiskey. As someone said above if you don't distill properly you could make unsafe alcohol (methanol and such).

    wine and beer yes, but I believe it's still illegal to make moonshine at home.

    I agree. Probably because the mortality rate is higher.
